Whereas we quickly strategy the Apex Legends Season 16 launch, different Apex-related titles appear to be tossed by the wayside. Apex Cell was lately given an early dying knell, and now information has surfaced revealing a secret, single-player, Titanfall 2-esque expertise that had been in growth has been scrapped fully.
EA hadn’t publicly introduced the event, however information of the unlucky cancellation unfold throughout the web like wildfire. Whereas we will take solace within the reality we don’t know what we truly missed, some particulars have leaked, because of Journalist Jeff Grub’s dialogue on the Giant Bomb podcast.
Right here’s every part we nearly obtained within the Apex/Titanfall single-player title.
Titanfall 2 characters
BT was one of the crucial memorable Titanfall characters and was almost definitely going to be part of the sport. BT was the Pathfinder titan linked with Jack Cooper, the protagonist of Titanfall 2, through the single-player marketing campaign.
Apex’s very personal Rampart would’ve made an look too, with the revelation she had gone and resurrected our favourite robotic Titanfall character.
Blisk as a playable character
Gamers would have been traversing this single-player expertise by way of Blisk’s lens, or at the least for sections of the eventual story. The character has been rumored to be making his approach over to Apex, however this recreation seemingly would’ve given players a style of the Outlands legend earlier than he debuted within the battle royale correct.
Apex Legends making a cameo appearances
A few of the Apex Legends characters everyone knows and love could be rocking up mid-way by way of the sport to provide you all of the powers required to make your approach by way of the marketing campaign. Grubb shared the title was “going to have the legends present up and provide you with particular powers all through the sport, so they might tie it to Apex in a extremely sturdy approach.”
Sadly, we’ll by no means see that come to fruition. There was additionally no indication whether or not it will have been the entire Apex roster or simply a number of cameos.
DOOM Everlasting fashion gameplay
The now-scraped title was reportedly a mixture of Apex and Titanfall, however the addition of one other recreation’s fashion may’ve taken it to a complete new degree: Doom was apparently one of many key inspirations for the single-player expertise.
The plan appeared to revolve round Doom Everlasting’s stock and intense play fashion. Grubb revealed, “they have been additionally tremendous impressed by Doom Everlasting, the place you’re all the time aggressive and all the time getting stuff.”
A comeback for Titanfall 2 wall-running
This characteristic was going to be a motion mechanic most gamers would have seemingly welcomed again with open arms. The return of the Titanfall-style motion potential wouldn’t be a one-time particular energy both, however extra seemingly a mechanic that may be there constantly all through the title. Based on Grubb, the devs wished to keep away from CoD-style wall-running.
Up to now, that’s all we all know in regards to the scrapped single-player Apex/TF2 title. What you don’t know can’t damage you, however now you recognize. At the very least we will all be unhappy collectively.
