Game Review: Apex Legends Season 4

By: Ben Marble/Reviews Editor

Season 4 of Apex Legends came out on February 4th, 2020, a year after the game was released. Apex Legends is a first person shooter battle royale created by Respawn Entertainment and published by EA on February 4th, 2019. Apex Legends was released for Xbox One, PS4, and Windows/PC with 50 million players in its first week. This battle royale takes place in the Titanfall universe, after the events of Titanfall 2, in a new area of space called the Outlands. To date, this game has 10 million monthly players

Apex Legends has 12 legends to choose from; Wraith, Octane, Causitc, Gibraltar, Wattson, Crypto, Bloodhound, Bangalore, Mirage, Lifeline, Pathfinder, and Revenant, each with their own abilities and ultimates. Every season has a new legend you can buy with in-game currency. For example, Caustic places down gas traps that activate when there are nearby enemies, but his ultimate is a gas grenade that covers the ground, causing 10 damage per second to players inside the gas cloud. Bangalore, whose ability is shooting smoke grenades to provide cover for her team, calls down an artillery strike that drops shells in a long line across the area causing damage.

This game can be very competitive and toxic at times, but the fun you have playing the game outweighs all odds. I’ve been a fan of Titanfall since launch, and finding out Apex Legends took place in the same universe definitely got me hooked to the game. My personal favorite legend is Caustic. The team at Respawn did a great job designing the characters and their background stories. This season is great, but my favorite season was Season 2 when they had the Iron Crown event, which was solo game mode. I rate this game a solid 8/10. If you like competitive first person shooter games and the battle royale genre, then I highly suggest this game for you to play.
