Will Tfue switch from Fortnite to Apex Legends?

FaZe’s Fortnite, but with the rise of Apex Legends seemingly putting a cloud of doubt in his mind about the future of the Epic Games title, will he be tempted to jump ship? 

Tfue used his success playing Battle Royale to elevate his Twitch channel during 2018 and claims to have the most subscribers on the platform so far, as a result. 

However, some of his actions and criticisms since the release of Apex Legends suggest that he’s not too happy with the current state of Fortnite. 

Epic GamesTfue has also complained about Fortnite’s Tilted Towers, saying it should be removed by Epic Games.

These frustrated sentiments first appeared when the streamer slapped two big labels on Epic’s free-to-play title, calling it “boring” and then “stale” between February 11-12, just under a week after Respawn Entertainment shocked the world by not just revealing but releasing its new battle royale game. 

Since then, Apex Legends has attracted over 25 million players and looks to be providing solid competition to Fortnite – sparking some extraordinary predictions from not just Tfue but also Dr Disrespect.

Both popular internet personalities have predicted that the game will “die” in the next year, with The Doc guaranteeing his viewers that the game’s craze will soon finished because people won’t want to be associated with the product. 

“It will die in a year because people will be embarrassed to be associated with it,” he guaranteed. “The product sucks and no-one really, really, really, really, really thinks it’s quality. It’s terrible.” 

Whether or not their predictions will come to fruition remains to be seen, as Fortnite has teased a number of exciting new changes to the game for Season 8 – which is expected to go live on February 28. 

Despite the FaZe Clan member previously saying Apex Legends is not better than Fortnite, if Tfue does truly believe that it will die in the next year, surely he will want to be associated with another money-making opportunity. That could be Respawn’s game. 

Respawn EntertainmentA lot of popular Fortnite streamers have tried Apex Legends, like Ninja, CouRageJD and others.

After all, he’s already pulled out of the ESL Katowice Royale tournament and has even discussed the idea of ditching the Fortnite World Cup Finals as well – which will have a $30 million prize pool. 

If he’s not happy with the current state of the game, is predicting that it will die in the next year and doesn’t plan on competing at upcoming tournaments, there is a chance that his switch to another game could be closer than some might think. 

There is a chance that Tfue is concerned that his Twitch following is made up of mostly Fortnite fans, though, in which case it would make a permanent switch-up of games particularly difficult. 

However, there’s nothing stopping him giving it a try. In fact, it’s starting to look quite likely indeed.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
