It's claimed Apex Legends will have a similar approach to Overwatch in regards to micro-transactions, but it's unclear whether this means lootboxes. Nibel also reports that EA filed for trademarks for the name Apex Legends (and Project Apex) last October, right around the time that EA announced that Respawn would have "multiple games" launching in 2019.

You'll want to keep one eye on Respawn's Twitch channel tomorrow, because after a weekend of wild rumors and leaks, the studio's Vince Zampella has promised all will be revealed about new battle royale game Apex Legends tomorrow morning.

"So, if you like Respawn, our games or even me, you should tune in tomorrow [Monday, February 4]", a tweet from Zampella reads. Spread online by numerous video streamers and influencers because clearly video game bloggers and journalists are incapable of keeping a secret, and corroborated on by Kotaku's always-reliable Jason Schrier, Apex Legends will see players ditch their Titans in favour of some of that sweet sweet chicken dinner.

Other gameplay details revealed by Schreier also hinted at where EA are pitching the game, which is somewhere between Overwatch and Rainbow Six Siege. Matches will support up to 60 players, with 3-player groups being the maximum option for team-play.
