It's official. Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall 2, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order) is making a battle royale game called Apex Legends, and the studio will be revealing all in a live stream later today. While no details have yet to be confirmed outright, the latest rumours and whispers suggest Apex Legends is set in the Titanfall universe, will be free to play on PC and console, features squad based gameplay that feels like a cross between Overwatch and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and could be releasing very, very shortly.
The "teaser stream" has already begun on Twitch, and seems to be switching between real time shots of various locations set in Apex Legends, segmented interstitially by brief clips of characters from the game itself, with the full reveal coming shortly after that. Below, you'll find all the other information you need to know about Apex Legends before the big announcement arrives, including how and where to watch it.

The Apex Legends teaser stream has already begun but, according to Zampella, the current show is just the beginning of the announcement, which will then culminate with a "full reveal" at 12PM PST/3PM ET/8PM GMT, at which point those on the west coast will apparently want to "fake food poisoning at lunch and go home early." Hmmm....
Where can I watch the Apex Legends reveal event?
I want to clarify, 8am pst starts the @PlayApex teaser stream. It’s super cool, but it leads up to the full reveal of everything at noon. So you probably don’t have to call in sick, just fake food poisoning at lunch and go home early.https://t.co/LsOnVwY35BFebruary 4, 2019

Sorry!
