Apex Legends has become one of the fastest growing battle royale games until now. Released by EA Games and Respawn Entertainment, the game took on the gaming world in just 72 hours after its launch. The free-to-play battle royale actually has reached more than 10 million downloads around the globe surpassing the likes of Fortnite, PUBG, and Call of Duty Blackout.
The fast-paced gameplay, interesting and unique characters, beautiful graphics, and many other things make it stand out from the rest of the games. It is available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC for now and we are here to tell you 5 reasons why you leave PUBG or any other battle royale and start playing this game.
Free of Cost
This is probably a very big reason for Fortnite’s popularity. Being free on almost all the platforms, Fortnite generates revenue through in-game purchases. Apex Legends took the same way. We know that PUBG is only free on mobile devices and costs some bucks to get it on PC, PS4, or Xbox. Apex Legends was offered free of cost to everyone, and with the fact that it reported over 10 million active players in just 3 days, the move can be considered quite successful.
Various characters with different skills and abilities
You do not have to rely on stock characters. Apex Legends bring you a number of unique characters have diverse skill set and abilities. We know that PUBG offers different clothing options and skins, but Apex Legends takes it a level up by introducing various characters to play the game with. It actually has around 8 different gameplay characters exhibiting their own skill set and abilities. Available Apex Legends characters include Mirage, Bangalore, Pathfinder, Lifeline, and more.
PUBG has its own reward system in which it drops crates with a number of free items. However, you never get paid items for free. Contrary to that, players in Apex Legends can rare paid skins for free in rewards. There are many other perks included in Apex Legends’ reward system that can get you many paid skins for free, unlike PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
No High System Requirements
At first glance, you won’t believe that a game like Apex Legends is actually very low demanding in terms of system requirements. This means that if your system cannot run PUBG smoothly, it will definitely run Apex Legends. The news is around the corner that PUBG is working on a PUNG Lite version of the game but by the time it will be officially released, most of the battle royale players will be addicted to the EA game.
The game was initially launched with the only single map but it is soon expected to get even more. Other than this, Apex Legends has some extra features that we will likely never see in PUBG such as players can respawn after being killed in the game. You can climb on ropes, use jetpacks, and many more.
