I know a bunch of people here already play it, but for those who don't and are into FPS and/or Battle Royale games, give it a go. I seriously haven't had this much fun in ages, it's giving me that same vibe there was when Fortnite/Rocket League were first released!
It's also set in the Titanfall universe so if you've ever played that and enjoyed it, you'll likely enjoy this game too. In fact, the weapons in the game are from Titanfall.
It's only available in Trios at the moment, so it's definitely more fun with friends, but don't worry, this game works great as a solo queue due to its innovative communication system! It's very easy to communicate with your squad even without voice chat.
The loot boxes aren't P2W (cosmetics only) and after a certain amount of them you're guaranteed a Legendary item.
It's a great alternative for those who don't like Fortnite, since there's no building aspect, and even for those who like it (like myself), it's a great change if you want a break from it. And IMO there's just no comparison to Blackout, this is better in every way (not to mention to play Blackout you've gotta pay 60$) - the looting system is much better, armor's more balanced, communication is infinitely better, the map feels fresh, as do the mechanics...
Seriously, this game gets a 10/10 from me so far and this is coming from someone who first watched the game and thought "meh, looks kinda trash but I'll give it a go".
Can't believe EA are associated with a good game! Although it makes sense they're only publishing it, Respawn Games are the developers. This game really went under the radar and just got released almost from out of nowhere.
