‘Apex Legends’ Latest News & Update: ‘Fortnite’ Comparison Dangerous, Chappie to be Added?

Apex Legends.Modest Pelican Gaming/YouTube

“Apex Legends” is blowing up in popularity right now and a lot of this is down to several factors, including the popularity of the Battle Royale genre and the quality of the game itself. A masterful shooter with plenty of interesting features, to boot, it’s already being called the next “Fortnite.” However, players might want to refrain from such comparisons since it would be dangerous to the game.

As Forbes reports, the surge in the player count for “Apex Legends” and everyone saying that it is the next top Battle Royale game has caused EA’s stocks to rise. This is despite the fact that the developers have repeatedly said that the company had nothing to do with the game’s creation. What’s more, the constant comparison with “Fortnite” appears to have given investors the wrong impression. This is where things get dangerous.

It’s worth pointing out that “Apex Legends” is not “Fortnite” nor is it trying to be. Although they do share similarities, Respawn Entertainment intends to do a separate thing from what Epic has going on. In this regard, once investors learn about how “Apex Legends” might not be the next big money-maker they are hoping for, everything could collapse.

Then again, it is not as if this is a definite eventuality. If “Apex Legends” continues its rising trend and makes a ton of money via its in-game market, there shouldn’t be any reason for its existence to be threatened. For that to happen, more interesting contents need to be added and this is where Chappie from the movie with the same name by Neill Blomkamp comes in.

For those who have not watched the film, Chappie is basically a robot built to have sentience. With this being the case, he would certainly seem like a good fit in “Apex Legends.” What’s more, all parties involved seem to be in agreement on the matter, so it’s practically a done deal.
