Apex Legends is currently going gangbusters on PC and console, with many of the the top Twitch and YouTube streamers taking it to heart.
There are a number of reasons for this hype, including a stealthy-smart PR campaign (it was announced and released at the same time) and the fact it's free to play. Oh, and also the fact that it's really good. I almost forgot about that.
Apex Legends is a fresh crack at the Battle Royale genre made popular by Fortnite and PUBG, but it adds a bunch of genuinely smart stuff to the equation.
This includes a smart contextual ping system that means you can play effectively in random squads without voice chat, as well as a rejigged revive system and the addition of Overwatch-like classes.
There's no mobile version. If you don't own a PS4, Xbox One, or decent gaming PC, though, try playing these five mobile Apex Legends alternatives.
Of course, the game that really kicked off the whole Battle Royale craze was Player Unknown's BattleGround, AKA PUBG.
The mobile version is surprisingly tidy, and while the dry military shooter style and clunky graphics are a million miles away from Apex Legends, its attempt to streamline the looting system certainly bears comparison to Respawn's recent efforts.
Again, it's free to play, and as a showcase for the unique tension that only BR games can create, PUBG Mobile is a brilliant experience.
