"Our goal in every game you play is that you come in with a plan but you leave with a story", said Drew McCoy, Lead Producer for Apex Legends. Respawn says it's focusing on deeper, more strategic gameplay with Apex Legends compared to some of its more popular competitors.

Developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, Apex Legends is a BR shooter where "legendary characters with powerful abilities team up to battle fame and fortune on the fringes of the Frontier". The new game comes from the makers of Titanfall whose upcoming sequel is also in the pipeline. If you're here you're probably wondering how to play solo & duos, a key feature of the battle royale genre.

Apex Legends just got released but it's already available for free download on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

As expected, development studio Respawn announced its Titanfall spinoff battle royale game Apex Legends this morning, and it's out right now.

In Apex Legends there are no duos or solos mode now being offered. In other words, you're not just an anonymous grunt like in PUBG or Fortnite, but matches still take place on the same map where 60 players on teams of three fight to be the last ones standing.

So, if you like Respawn, our games or even me, you should tune in tomorrow. Legends include Bloodhound, a tracker who can see recent enemy activity on the map; Lifeline, a battlefield medic who can shield teammates and bring them back from the brink of death.

Answer: The game is balanced around three-player team play and you can not play as a solo or duo now as of the time of this writing. Additional seasons will be released in the future, with different themes and new content as well as Legends, skins, and weapons.
