Apex Legends Character Rundown; Abilities And More Explained

In a rather unexpected turn of events, Titanfall developer Respawn announced and released its latest game, Apex Legends, all on the same day. This free-to-play battle royale is set in the Titanfall universe and is strictly team-based, with 20 teams of three players facing off on one huge map. In addition, the game has an emphasis on classes, with each character assisting and supporting their squad using unique special abilities.

There are eight classes (known in the game as Legends) to choose from and each has a specific role to play. Below we outline what each does, as well as offer additional insight into their roles and abilities.

You can download Apex Legends from the Origin store on PC, and on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 right now. GameSpot got an early look at the game, and you can read more in our impressions. We'll also have a full review of Apex Legends in the coming days.

True Detective Season 3 Theories From Episode 5: Things Are Heating Up

On this show, you're either dying or dead.

Things are starting to pick up on True Detective Season 3.

We got a few long-standing questions answered. Brett Woodard, the "Trash Man," is dead. A lynch mob descended on his home, and though he was defending himself, he killed law enforcement in the process. Roland took a bullet to his leg, which caused his noticeable limp in the '90s timeline. And Wayne put a bullet in Woodard's head, as if the poor man wasn't traumatized enough.

We learned that Roland survives through 2015; Episode 5 concluded with Wayne and Roland sitting on the latter's porch, and during a long, painful conversation, we learned more bad secrets. At some point--probably in the '90s timeline--Wayne did something awful, which caused him and Roland to stop speaking. Wayne and Roland may have killed someone and covered it up. And although Wayne, to his frustration and confusion, doesn't remember all the details, Roland does. And it's only a matter of time before we learn them too.

Here are the latest theories for Season 3, Episode 5: "If You Have Ghosts." Check out our prior theory pieces to get all caught up.

X-Men Producer Trusts Disney To Stand By The Franchise

about X hours ago from

While the future of the X-Men remains unknown due to Fox's upcoming merger with Disney, even though there's still two movies slated for release, franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner is confident that whatever happens will be for the best and said as much while promoting the third and final season of Legion at the Television Critics Association press tour.

While Marvel Studios will take control of the X-Men characters under the leadership of Kevin Feige--and Donner isn't sure she'll have any role in future films--the popular superheroes are in good hands. "He's got a great story sense," Donner says of her former assistant Feige, who she worked with on the first X-Men film. "He's got a great ability to weave each world and weave those worlds together. I trust him and I trust that he will take care of the X-Men."

Unfortunately, though, with the ownership changing hands, several projects are in flux. Gambit, X-Force, and Kitty Pryde are all movies Donner said are in Disney's hands now, should they happen at all. "This is all now in Disney's playground and they get to decide," she said. "At least we know it's in good hands. Everybody's worked really hard on the Fox side, but now it's going to be Disney's call."

Apex Legends Will Have A Fortnite-Style Battle Pass

Apex Legends Will Have A Fortnite-Style Battle Pass

Respawn, the developer behind Titanfall and Titanfall 2, has released a new battle royale game called Apex Legends. Much like Fortnite, Apex will have a Battle Pass, and it works just like the one in Epic's battle royale game.

Although the game was released as soon as it was announced on Monday, Apex's first Battle Pass won't launch until March. It will be active for a full season, which runs for about three months. Following Season 1's debut in March, Apex's Season 2 is scheduled for June, Season 3 for September, and Season 4 for December. Respawn has not announced the exact start dates for each of these seasons, but they have revealed what buying a Battle Pass will get you.

Like Fortnite, each Battle Pass includes a collection of limited-time cosmetic items. Each Apex Battle Pass will include around 100 different rewards, which you can unlock through playing the game. Several items in each season can be unlocked without the need to purchase a pass, but you'll need to buy one in order to earn everything. Once you unlock something, it's yours to keep--even in following seasons. Every Battle Pass will only include exclusive, seasonal cosmetic items and random Apex Packs, the latter of which is an assortment of weapon and Legends skins of various rarities. So you won't miss out on unlocking new Legends if you don't buy the Battle Passes.

Pokemon Go: New Shiny Pokemon Now Available In Lunar New Year Event

The annual Lunar New Year event has returned in Pokemon Go. From now until February 13, certain types of Pokemon will appear much more frequently in the wild than normal, and Niantic is offering players extra XP for catching and evolving monsters--as well as a chance to catch a new Shiny.

Throughout the event, players will have a much easier time of finding Rattata, Ekans, Mankey, Ponyta, Electabuzz, Dratini, Mareep, Miltank, Torchic, Poochyena, Spoink, and Buneary--all Pokemon that correspond to the Chinese zodiac. To commemorate the Year of the Pig, Shiny Spoink will also be available for the first time.

On top of that, players will earn twice the normal amount of XP when they capture and evolve Pokemon. Additionally, monsters that are traded during the event will have a higher likelihood of becoming Lucky Pokemon, which require less Stardust than normal Pokemon to power up. You can tell Lucky Pokemon apart by their sparkling backgrounds.
