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.

Will custom games be added to Apex Legends?

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.”

When can we expect custom games in Apex Legends?

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.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends was an overnight sensation and it’s barely slowed down. In its two years of success, there’s been map changes galore, new legends joining the fight, and an ever-evolving meta – but we’re here to test your knowledge with a quiz.

Kings Canyon was the original map we all dropped into on that fine day of February 4, 2019. Fast forward 24 months, Apex Legends is still one of the most popular battle royale’s – but a lot has changed.

As we approach Season 8, there’s 15 characters to play with, two maps to drop into, and a weapons list containing 24 different guns. On top of that, each seasonal update has delivered different tweaks to gameplay and snippets of Legend lore for various fighters – which means the scope for our quiz questions is quite broad.

By now, you will have been named Champions of the Arena on numerous occasions. But, do you have what it takes to get a perfect score on our ultimate Apex Legends quiz?

Take our Apex Legends quiz!

Your test score will determine just how well you know the Outlands in the Apex world.

The world, of course, is connected to that of the Titanfall series, which was also developed by Respawn Entertainment. Many weapons and features have crossed over between planets, presumably with even more of that to come in the future.

Don’t be too downhearted if you don’t receive a perfect score this time, but if you are named a Champion, be sure to tweet us @TitanfallBlog on Twitter.
