Apex Legends news: Twitch Prime goodies, esports things, and a new gun

    
8

As often seems to be the case with games like these, news from the realm of Apex Legends comes in a bundle form. For those folks who are into that whole battle royale thing, there’s new freebies for Twitch Prime subscribers, a word on the shooter’s most recent esports event, and a tease of a new weapon.

On the digital competition side of things, Apex Legends’ second Twitch Rivals event saw teams from the NA and EU duke it out in four rounds of competition. If you happen to have missed out on the event and have nine-and-a-half hours to burn, you can take in the VOD.

If you’re one of those who has an active Twitch Prime membership and play Apex Legends, you’ve got some free in-game goodies to claim: specifically an Omega Point Pathfinder skin and five Apex Packs. Bear in mind, however, that the free stuff will go to only the one game account you have linked to your Twitch Prime membership.

Finally, a new weapon known as Havoc is due to arrive at some point later today. Players can expect an announcement of the gun’s arrival soon, as well as look forward to more word about it with the game’s designers.

Don’t forget that our very own MJ will also be streaming the shooter at 8:00 p.m. EST tonight on our own Twitch channel.

Is it squad-only right now or can you play solo? That’s the big obstacle for me right now is that I don’t have voice comms til I can get a new headset (which may be awhile).

Logitech G430 is what I roll with. Currently $35 on Amazon. Can’t really argue with that price. And I find the earphones really comfortable. Only real issue is it can’t handle too much abuse due to being mostly plastic and it’s easy to trip on the cord which then leads to knocking them down to the ground regularly…

Basically I’ve got two pairs right now but both of them have different issues due to aforementioned abuse. One doesn’t have a working mic, the other doesn’t have a working earphone + the plastic casing for that earphone broke off so it just dangles.

You don’t need a headset. The ping communication system is fantastic, 95% of the matches I play are without anyone using voice.

Anyone remember that game, Fortnite I think it was called, or was it too long ago?

Thank You so much for Star Wars Galaxies: Legends.

Started playing swg legend emu, i log on when i get home and stay logged in most of the night if not all night, it doesn’t mean i’m at the keyboard the whole time, but i’m part of the world, part of the community. (i’m sure mmorpg peeps get what i mean here).

After one week, only a week it really hit home just how sad the genre turned out thanks to Corporate Goliath’s. They truly ruined good community driven mmorpg’s.
