To kick off 2022, we’re taking a look at the major games, genres and platforms that make PC gaming to see where they’re at as we begin a new year. 

Would you believe Apex Legends is almost three years old? When Respawn dropped a spin-off Titanfall Battle Royale without warning back in 2019, already feeling like a late contender to PUBG and Fortnite’s crowns, it was tempting to write it off as yet another attempt to hop aboard the bandwagon. Hell, it didn’t even have wallrunning!

But Apex immediately proved itself more than just another gimmicky genre cash-grab. Respawn didn’t just translate Titanfall’s athletic gunplay into a more measured, tactical battle royale—it introduced the idea of respawning players mid-match to the genre, and boasted an incredible, accessible ping system that still hasn’t been topped. 

Nearly three years on, Apex hasn’t just cemented its place next to Warzone and Fortnite at the top of the battle royale table. It’s grown into one of the best multiplayer shooters you can play today.

So, how is Apex Legends right now?
