Intense Apex Legends vs Titanfall cosplay brings Respawn’s games to life

A pair of cosplayers have shown exactly what it would be like to have Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends and Titanfall come together with an insane head-to-head design. 

Respawn have blurred the lines a little bit between Apex and their other popular series throughout their battle royale game – with a number of weapons, features and other items moving from one game to another.

However, there has not yet been an opportunity for the legends to come up against their counterparts in the Apex Games. For those wondering what it may be like, either that or a lover of cosplay, two fans have put together incredible outfits for both Bloodhound and Pulse Blade Pilot.

Reddit user MrsDragmire posted the two cosplays to the Apex Legends subreddit on March 26, showing both of the characters facing off in an almost boxing poster-like pose.

They wrote: “A buddy and I had a Titanfall vs. Apex cosplay photoshoot a week ago. I thought I’d share one of my favorite shots!”

The post has since been met with a warm embrace from the community and there’s no doubt about why that’s been the case. The attention to detail on the Bloodhound mask, using tubing for creative effect, and red color scheme really does set that one apart. On the other hand, anybody who has played Titanfall will be able to spot just how recognizable the Pulse Blade Pilot cosplay looks as well – with other shots showing a stunning replica pistol as well.

Some fans were curious about the style of the image, however, as it’s clearly been worked on a lot using Photoshop. One said: “This a real photo and not render? Holy moly I never seen such perfect helmets for both characters! The texture and lightings are beyond amazing, cosplay well done!”

In response to that, one of the creators said: “Thank you friend! There was quite a bit of digital editing to make the lighting look like an in-game render, but it is indeed a photo!”

They also revealed, in another comment, that the shoot was done outdoors – pointing out their Instagram page, which has unedited versions and they’re just as impressive.

This isn’t the first Apex Legends cosplay to have surfaced in recent times, however, as creative members of the community have also shared designs for Wattson, Revenant and many others as well.
There’s something refreshing about the crossover from these cosplayers, though, so let’s hope more take inspiration from their popular post.

Apex Legends director reveals plans to make it more than a battle royale

Apex Legends is currently one of the most popular battle royale games in what is a saturated market, going toe-to-toe with Fortnite and Warzone – but developers Respawn Entertainment have plans to make it much more than that.

Apex is currently gearing up for its seventh season, which devs have boasted is their biggest yet in terms of new content, as they release the game’s third map, a new Legend, Horizon, and a host of new features like Clubs and a Steam launch.

However, while the battle royale side of things is going from strength to strength, Respawn are ambitious, and have plans to take their Apex Legends universe to new places.

Their focus might currently still be on the battle royale, but game director Chad Grenier has revealed that the studio has much grander plans for the future.

The future of Apex Legends

In an interview with Eurogamer, Grenier revealed that they are already working on content for up to Season 12 of Apex, as they try to plan as far ahead as possible.

But, beyond just the new seasons of content, there is also a wider view about how they can take their roster of Legends and do new and exciting things. “Right now we’re a battle royale game. I think if you look into the future, we have a lot of conversations of, you know, should we expand beyond battle royale?” Grenier said.

“We have this roster of legends that people love – how else can we use them? I think looking into the future, you’re probably going to see the game becoming more than just a battle royale game. You see we have all these LTMs (limited time modes) and other ways to play. I think that’s a great starting point.”

What exactly this could mean is unclear, but we can make a few educated guesses. The most obvious would be some form of PvP multiplayer mode, Call of Duty style. Respawn’s Titanfall series already did this successfully, and many developers at the studio actually worked on the Modern Warfare series at Infinity Ward previously.

The other obvious option would be PvE. They’ve already dabbled their toes in this with the Season 5 quest, which had small single-player ‘missions’ of sorts, but it wasn’t an all-out campaign or story mode as such.

Given the great lore that Apex Legends has already built up through trailers, teaser and comics, it certainly would make sense to give it more gameplay aspects too.

For now, the focus is on Season 7, but it sounds like Apex Legends has big plans to innovate beyond the standard battle royale.
