If you've ever wanted Respawn Entertainment to create an Apex Legends fighting game, one fan's incredible concept shows what it could look like.

Apex Legends is knee-deep into its Season 2 celebrations, and with the Leviathans now stomping around the map carelessly, the Flyers soaring over players' heads and the addition of the battle royale's tenth Legend Wattson, there's a lot of transitions for Season One players to take in.

One talented fan decided to celebrate the new season by creating a 2D fighting game concept for all of the characters - the end result is pretty incredible.


"Finish Him!"

Reddit user MysteriousMandrill posted their concept to the Apex Legends subreddit, where fans were in awe of the design. Aptly named 'Apex Fighters', the design shows portraits for all ten heroes in a concept character selection screen.

Wattson, the game's latest Legend, was given the full pixel art treatment, and makes us wish that we could play as her in her beautiful 2D form forever. 

Lifeline was also given a full portrait design rather than just a headshot, and she looks badass in her infamous peace sign pose.

It takes a lot of patience and talent to create pixel art, especially when it mimics a classic fighting game format, but MysteriousMandrill absolutely smashed it - Apex Legends fighting game, when?

Respawn is targeting cheaters in latest update

The July 10 Apex Legends update is clamping down on cheaters, and is a welcome change to a game that's weighed down by people playing unfairly.

Respawn made the decision to turn its spectation capabilities off, meaning players will no longer be able to watch others. This helps combat exploitation by stopping people from watching opponents' matches and giving their friends an advantage by telling them their actions.

The leaving penalty is also being reinforced, as well as a bunch of bug fixes and overall improvements. Hopefully this update will make the battle royale more enjoyable for players who are fed up with unlawful winning tactics.
