Apex Legends Developer Intends to Add More Game Modes This Year

Design director Jason McCord says Respawn wants to introduce "other ways to play the game."

Apex Legends has firmly established itself as a giant in the battle royale genre. Alongside the likes of Call of Duty: Warzone, Fortnite, and PlayerUnknown’s Battleground, Respawn Entertainment’s free-to-play shooter has become the go-to game for millions upon millions of players, and thanks to steady improvements and the consistency it maintains across its plentiful seasonal content, it’s managed to not only retain its playerbase, but actively and constantly grow it.

Respawn, however, obviously wants to improve the game even further and keep building upon it. In a recent Q&A video published by the developer, design director Jason McCord suggested that one of the ways the developer intends to do that by the end of 2021 is to introduce “new ways to play the game” to allow players to experience the game’s world and characters in different ways- which essentially means Respawn is adding more game modes outside of the regular battle royale stuff.

“We’re looking at 2021,” McCord said. “We’re looking at- yeah, sure, Season 11 at the end of the year, what do we want the game to look like at that point… but also, what are the priorities for Apex this year?”

Currently, Apex is strictly a battle royale,” he continued. “But we’ve built these characters and this world that I think players really want to be in, even if they don’t love battle royales. So at a really high level, I’ll just say that that’s something that we want to focus on solving this year- other ways to play the game.”

Given the fact that other major free-to-play battle royale shooters in the market have been offering players different new modes every now and then, it makes sense that Apex Legends will want to get in on that as well. Meanwhile, in the more immediate future, it seems there’s more to look forward to as well, with the shooter seemingly in line to get “a ton” of Titanfall content in Season 9.

Apex Legends is available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
