    It's made by EA, so it's probably crap and a cash grab?

    main sticking points are it's made by respawn entertainment, the studio behind the titanfall series. it's free to play and was surprise released yesterday afternoon. it takes the concept of hero shooters like overwatch or the specialists in the black ops multiplayer and weaves it into the battle royale genre. instead of being a generic solider or character you pick a unique 'legend' that has a set of abilities; one passive, one technical and an ultimate. for example, one character has a passive ability that gives you a gun shield that blocks incoming gunfire when you aim down sights, a tactical ability that lets you throw down a big dome shield that blocks incoming gunfire for 15 seconds and then an ultimate that calls in a mortar strike on a marked position. every character has their strengths and weaknesses and counters.

    there is a respawn mechanic where if you cant pick up a downed teammate within a certain amount of time you still have the ability to go collect their banner and take it to one of a handful of beacons on the map and immediately redrop them into the game. the beacons are a one time use only mechanic for the entire map so if an opponent squad uses one then you wont be able to.

    60 person limit, only squads of 3 people, no solos or duos yet.

    they're doing seasons that last three months and each season has a battle pass with over 100 items to earn, all cosmetic, like skins for the legends and guns as well as victory poses and banners. they have heavily stressed that there is no pay to win system, any real world money spent simply gets you cosmetic items quicker, as almost all of the items can also be earned by playing the game and acquiring the in-game currency and loot boxes from levelling up.

    from the first day of being live it seems to be a really well optimized and balanced game with enough tweaks to make it different from the other big 3. it's getting buzz cause this is a triple a studio putting out a battle royale, which not many others have done, plus the fact the turnaround from being a rumor to the game dropping was less than a week, it seemed.

    i have yet to play it though me and matthew are trying to find the time to hop on. the titanfall games are some of the best FPS of this generation. before black ops 4, the first titanfall was the last multiplayer shooter I put an insane amount of time into.
