The trailer opens up with Bangalore, Caustic, Gibraltar, Mirage, Octane and Wattson chasing each other on King's Canyon map. From a nearby high ground, a character named Crypto gets busy on a laptop in isolation and goes through strings of code.

Soon an EMP explosion causes the Repulsor tower to fall over and it makes Wattson really worried. Containment field around them goes down letting winged dinosaur-like creatures called Flyers and Leviathans to stomp all over the map.

Up until now, those fields were a fence that was holding such prehistoric beasts off the island and worked as a defense against them. Whether or not it going down is up to Crypto still remains to be seen in forthcoming future.

Apparently, none of those beasts are after any Legends directly but that doesn't mean your arena is safe from being wrecked and developers may have come up with this idea just to make change to King's Canyon map for next season.

Although there is not much detail to look at, it appears that the game would likely to debut on Android and iOS devices. In order to tap into a huge audience in world of mobile gaming, they wish to explore the Chinese markets at the same time.

RELATED: Apex Legends Rumored to Include Titans

Given how Battle Royale and free-to-play games becomes popular in past over a very short time, it was about time that Electronic Arts take steps toward mobile gaming territory just like Epic Games did with Fortnite Battle Royale.

Mobile gaming and Chinese market has been a lucrative aspect for video game developers and publishers these days. So, it is safe to say that Titanfall series spin-off is currently heading towards a direction for a better future up ahead.

The game is currently suffering from a huge decrease in player count due to developers taking a strict position against cheating and banned nearly a million players and not adding much content through Season 1 Battle Pass.

Respawn has been quiet for some time regarding updates for Apex Legends but publisher EA plans on to tackle this problem by adding more engaging content in Season 2, which will be revealed at EA Play event in June.

Apex Legends Bans 700,000 Cheaters

In a never-ending battle with cheaters, Respawn has banned over 700,000 players on Apex Legends so far.

Set within the fictional universe of Titanfall series, free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends by developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts became an instant hit upon launch and managed to amass 50 million players in a month.

However, one thing the game has been suffering from other than issues like constantly losing its player count is cheaters and Respawn is actively playing a vigilant role with EA to prevent them from ruining experience for others.

When Apex was initially launched, developers had to ban 16,000 cheaters right off the bat and that number has been increasing. Attempts to create over 300,000 new accounts have been thwarted and more than 4,000 cheat seller accounts are banned.

Above mentioned figures are just from past 20 days on PC platform and Respawn has blocked 770,000 players since release. Of course, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are not completely above cheating but those are much easier to keep an eye on.

After deploying a reporting tool in Season One update, detecting issues regarding aim-assists, speed boosts, x-ray vision and other performance-enhancing mods selling became easier and more than half a million players got booted for such illicit activity.

Cheating in competitive multiplayer games is a constant problem and developers have teamed up with security and fraud unit of Electronic Arts in order to continue crusade of delivering a clean and healthy environment for players to enjoy the experience.

RELATED: Apex Legends Rumored to Include Titans

Although developer team has refused to share how they are fighting the battle but they are attacking cheaters and its sellers from any and every possible angle they can with every resources and tools they can get their hands on.

Despite losing much of early momentum, Apex Legends has still great potential for eSports but much of that possibility is threatened by cheating and CEO of Respawn, Vince Zampella intends to release more seasonal updates to retain players while they continue this fight.

Apex Legends Rumored to Include Titans

Respawn Entertainment is rumored to add giant robot Titans to their sensational battle royale shooter Apex Legends.

Ever since developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts came up with free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One based on their renowned Titanfall series, it has taken over the genre.

Although we are not getting Titanfall 3 anytime soon, Respawn is rumored to add iconic mech-styled Titans from the series to this latest Battle Royale spin-off title that has already topped 50 million player counts within a month of release.

Even before the game arrived for all, people were hoping to see those hulking machines rampaging throughout the battlegrounds but no one really was quite sure how they would fit into the gameplay mechanics of the title.

Set in Titanfall universe after the events of Titanfall 2, the last-man-standing shooter takes place on a lawless sector of victorious militia force Frontier called the Outlands. So, those 20-feet tall machines can start stomping around the landscape of Apex anytime now.

Below is the video with information that has been causing all the stirring about Titans into Apex Legends battle royale lately.

The clip is taken from an early and unreleased build of Apex that features voice lines uttered by a Pathfinder that includes mention of Infected, Reapers, Spectres and Stalkers other than Titans, all belonging to the same fictional universe.

All three of Reapers, Spectres and Stalkers are known ground enemy types from previous games of the franchise. "Infected Coming In" line probably refers to players infecting other rivals to join their side much like Halo's "Infected" mode.

If these robots are included as all-new enemy classes, then we might very well be getting a PvPvE mode where aside from killing each other, players have to worry about and stay alert from being ambushed by these dreaded enemies as well.

On its second month from global launch, Apex Legends has already managed to gather a massive community of players who are eagerly waiting for their first major content update and we sincerely hope that Respawn will make it worth for everyone.

Apex Legends Crosses 50 Million Players

With only four weeks after release, free-to-play Battle Royale game Apex Legends has gained 50 million players.

Launching out of nowhere on February 4, 2019, free-to-play Battle Royale game Apex Legends from developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts hit the video gaming industry like a wrecking ball and owned it.

The game has been passing one after another milestone ever since it is released and just within four weeks after it initially came out, Respawn's Titanfall series spin-off has successfully managed to hit a whooping 50 million overall player count.

When the game went live, a staggering one million players joined to compete against each other in first eight hours, which grew into an impressive 2.5 million count over PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide by the end of that day.

Soon, people from all over the world took notice of its presence and quickly start comparing it to the closest market competitor, Fortnite Battle Royale, which is another Battle Royale game that has seen a booming growth in a very short time.

Fortnite took an entire 16 weeks to amass 45 million players but back then, that number was pretty remarkable. After its launch in September 2017, the game picked up 125 million players and accomplished 200 million participants so far.

However, Apex has gathered more than what Epic Games' last-man-standing shooter did in a couple of months but at an incredibly faster rate by reaching 50 million players mark in 28 just days, thus putting other titans of the industry in shame.

RELATED: Apex Legends Free Loot on Twitch Prime

Fortnite originally launched with a co-op survival game mode titled Save the World but failed to gain traction from players until they came up with free-to-play Battle Royale component. Aside from a massive player base, it garnered cultural relevance and huge popularity.

Although both Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds are still ruling champions when it comes to Battle Royale genre, Apex Legends surely is a new champion on the rising and probably the competition that can possibly overthrow the reigning supreme.
