Arguably the two biggest online shooters to release in the first part of 2019, and they both come from the EA stable. Respawn’s Apex Legends surprised a lot of people almost coming from nowhere to show off what they could do in the Battle Royale genre, and Bioware’s Anthem has been hyped into the stratosphere since it was announced. They might not be targeted at the same audiences, but when they do a similar job it might mean the less informed gamer doesn’t know which one to plough their cash into… and one of them is free. The team get together to work out whether EA are causing themselves sales problems by chucking these games out so close to each other. Note: at the time of recording The Division 2 hadn’t been released.
In this episode of the Codec Moments podcast, Ali and Matt are joined by Stuart Cullen, and you’ll find out:
- What is Apex Legends
- How does Anthem work
- Why they spend an inordinate amount of time talking about Battlefield V
- Which game the team consider the last decent EA title
- Who thinks Battle Royale games can go and f$%! themselves
- Whether we should really be giving a copy of Anthem away
- and more.
