Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale that pits teams of three players against each other. But on November 5, everything changes for a while, at least. It is possible that it is overselling it but the whole game scenario will remain unchanged. Game-play everything will be as it is however the fun of playing duos will take it to the next level. Playing in teams of two rather than three will require a different approach. In Duos Mode, loss of one player is a sudden death to the team because it decreases the chances of survival.
Duos Mode is not forever
Duos mode will be available for a limited time, although EA hasn’t yet said when that time will come to an end. More information will no doubt be revealed when the action gets underway, so we’ll fill in the blanks for you here.
Now the question is will people love it? As for Counter Strike Global Offensive and many others games give Duos mode, Apex Legends was the one with three-player format. Introducing a 3 layer game was epic play of Ea but some of us were not satisfied. It was people’s feedback which gave birth to this duos team idea. And sooner or later there is gonna be a duos team play.
This approach has earned Apex Legends 70 million registered players as of this month, making it one of the most popular shooters on the market today. But requirement of players to team up with total strangers over the internet is indeed a big task, even with the in-game communication features. It’s not always fun to play Apex when you have to rely on your teammates and you keep getting cleaned up by more skilled and organized squads. Apex, more so than competing battle royale games like Fortnite, doesn’t offer players a lot of in-game activities that don’t revolve around winning. The harder it is to win, the harder it is to enjoy the game.
