Those gamers who are willing to get a serious challenge should always count on Apex Legends. The famous first-person hero shooter battle royale game remains free-to-play, although almost two years have passed since its launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
We’re less than two weeks away until the Season 8 for Apex Legends finally kicks in. Fans of the game will get to play with Salvo’s most popular weapon (the 30-30 Repeater), over 100 new items like legendary skins, Holo-Sprays, Apex Pass, and more.
Launch date: February 2
Apex Legends will have its Season 8 available starting February 2, and the fans have all the reasons to be excited already. Thanks to the Gamespot channel, we’re already free to watch the Mayhem Launch trailer for the upcoming season in all its glory:
As EA reveals, Apex Legends had about 8 to 10 million players per week as of July 2019. In only a few months, the game counted around 70 million players worldwide. The Steam description writes the following about Apex Legends:
Apex Legends is the award-winning, free-to-play Battle Royale team shooter from Respawn Entertainment. Master an ever-growing roster of legendary characters with powerful abilities and experience strategic squad play and innovative gameplay in the next evolution of Battle Royale.
Apex Legends received over 50 awards and nominations, and it was declared the best first-person shooter game from 2019. The title offers the players the chance to master a growing roster of powerful Legends, while each of them has his own unique personality, strengths and abilities.
You must keep in mind that you need some pretty decent specs if you’re willing to play Apex Legends on a PC. If you want to run the game at decent settings, you’ll need an AMD Radeon™ R9 290 or NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 970 for the graphics card.
