Fortnite has a lot going for it. Beautiful art direction. Tight gameplay. Satisfying difficulty. And celebrity endorsements from the likes of Drake and Travis Scott.
And though it's hard to imagine anything recreating its magic completely, Titanfall creator Respawn is diving into the 'battle royale' format with Apex Legends, a new take on the last man standing shooter.
Available now on PS4, Xbox and PC, the free-to-play game has racked up 1mm players within mere hours with rave reviews flowing in from dedicated gamers and critics alike. Next time you and your squad take a couple bad Ls, fire this up and give it a try. At worse, it's a nice change of pace. At best, it's your next addiction.
