Epic Games' Fortnite is probably the most popular video game in the world right now, and it's almost certainly the most popular battle royale game. However, is there a chance that Respawn Entertainment's Apex Legends could take that title away from the old champion? We think that there's some evidence to suggest Apex Legends might just end up becoming more popular than Fortnite.
Firstly, Apex Legends has a battle royale mode, which is the most popular genre out there right now. However, Apex Legends doesn't really play like Fortnite. Apex Legends feels like a mix of Titanfall, Overwatch and Fortnite. Plus, its "Legends" mode sets it apart. Legends mode allows players to choose one of eight different legends, which adds a lot of variety to the game.
The game also fixes everything that might be frustrating you about the genre. For example, all compatible attachments are automatically applied to your weapons, meaning that you don't have to attach them yourself, which is pretty handy.

Defeating Fortnite and becoming the most popular battle royale game won't be easy, especially since its publisher has further solidified its position through the introduction of the Epic Games Store. However, gamers are going to flock to the game that they find the most entertaining, which means that Apex Legends is certainly going to give Fortnite a run for its money. This isn't just another Fortnite clone. Instead, it's much more innovative and brings something new to the the genre as a whole. Fortnite is going to have to step up its game to compete with this gem.
