Apex Legends officially released on Monday, February 4, and fans of the game have already had an opportunity to watch the title’s first competition, the Apex Legends Twitch Rivals tournament.
In the tournament, which was won by a squad featuring Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, teams of three jumped into public matches and and attempted to earn the most kills and victories over a four hour period, with the team at the top of the leaderboard when the time ran out named the winner.
While fans enjoyed the tournament, many would like to see the teams face off in the same match to see who really is the best, prompting Apex Legends players to discuss when, and even if, the game will have custom games added.
While Respawn Entertainment have yet to address whether they will be adding the mode to the game, Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, who tested and helped perfect the game before its release did drop a clue that it may be coming in the future.
On his Tuesday, February 12 stream, shroud told his chat: “Once they add the ability to make custom games, eventually we’ll be playing each other in tournaments.”
Unfortunately, with Respawn Entertainment yet to announce that the feature is on its way, there is currently no official release date for custom games. It’s also possible that the developers go down the same route that Fortnite did, not making custom games public but instead giving keys out to tournament hosts so that they could use them.
For the time being, Apex Legends fans will have to wait for more information to be released by Respawn Entertainment regarding custom games, but fans will be hopeful that they are introduced to the game sooner rather than later.
We’ll be sure to update this page with any new information as it becomes available.
