Apex Legends Adds Its First New Gun, Havoc--See It In Action

about X hours ago from

Respawn Entertainment has said it intends for Apex Legends to be a live-service game, and that means we'll see changes and events pop up in the future. What exactly those are isn't quite clear yet--the game's first season, and the new content Respawn has teased with it, doesn't come until March. We've seen one update to the game that brought new cosmetic items and some error fixes, but players are just getting their first taste of long-term Apex Legends today.

In a new trailer, Respawn showed off the first new gun it's adding to Apex Legends since the game's launch earlier this month. The weapon is the Havoc energy rifle, which looks to be a fully automatic assault rifle that handles in a similar way to current weapons like the R-301 Carbine or the Devotion light machine gun. The Havoc is live in the game now--check it out in action in the trailer below.

Anthem Review Roundup

about X hours ago from

Anthem is BioWare's latest game, but fans of the studio's massive RPGs like Mass Effect and Dragon Age will find a very different experience waiting for them. Anthem is a loot shooter, more akin to Destiny or The Division, consisting of a campaign followed by an extensive post-game with bigger and better rewards to collect and more difficult bosses to take on.

Anthem differentiates itself from the competition with extensive use of a flying mechanic, letting you zoom above the battlefield like Iron Man. It also lets you swap between classes more easily, as your character is a pilot called a "Freelancer" who can take the controls of the various suit types at will.

So far Anthem has only been released in early access on PC and Xbox One, through EA's various membership programs. Many of the reviews published thus far are early impressions without scores. Still, a consensus seems to be forming that while flying through the battlefield is enjoyable, the story is lackluster--especially compared to BioWare's best--and many say the game feels unfinished in its current state. Read on for impressions from around the industry, and check out GameSpot sister site Metacritic for more details.
