There is growing expectation that a free-to-play Titanfall battle royale will be launched on Monday, February 4, and it looks like top streamers shroud and Dr Disrespect have already had some hands-on experience.

The original leak, by YouTuber TheQuartering, first suggested that the two streamers had been involved in the game’s launch, operating two of the most popular battle royale channels on Twitch.

The biggest clue that the pair had indeed been out to playtest the game, came from Twitter. Both streamers announced that they were taking a ‘day off’ on January 31 – shroud even confirmed it was for “secret stuff” in Los Angeles.

These two streamers both taking the day away on January 31 for some ‘secret stuff’ is surely no coincidence, and industry insider Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau has confirmed that the playtest for the the game was indeed in LA.

Expected to be named ‘Apex Legends’, the battle royale game is said to be both announced and playable on Monday, February 4.

Slasher has spoken to one of the attendees at the playtest, remaining anonymous, who gave the game a glowing review.

Another peculiar hint is that the URL ‘playapex.com’ directly takes visitors to the Electronic Arts homepage, furthering indicating that the game will be titled ‘Apex Legends’ as rumored.

Initial reports said that the game would be teased on Saturday, February 2, so the leaks will be proved true or false very soon.

We will keep this story updated with further details as they are revealed about the rumored Titanfall Battle Royale, Apex Legends.

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 10, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the new upgraded team so far, including the full squad and any leaks.

We’ll be honest right up front; this isn’t the best Team of the Week we’ve ever seen, but there are plenty of hidden gems in the squad nonetheless.

Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez, Barcelona’s Antoine Greizmann, and Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman were all standout players over the weekend – with plenty of solid, if unspectacular cards, also in the running for TOTW 10.

The squad is headlined by Barcelona forward Griezmann, who had a spectacular goal in their weekend matchup against Osasuna. Lautaro Martinez, Iago Aspas, and Brighton keeper Pacheco tie for the second-highest rating of this TOTW, all featuring 86 overall ratings.

Manchester City’s Benjamin Mendy also gets in with his first In-Form of the year, sneaking into the conversation of potentially being a viable left-back option in the Prem.

Team of the Week 10 start time

On November 25, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS released the tenth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 10 promo began at 6pm (UK time), as per usual. That’s 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

TOTW player upgrades are now always announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the teams as soon as they’re live.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 10 leaks

Three weeks ago, EA SPORTS accidentally revealed a number of upgraded players early, totally by accident. In TOTW 8 and 9, they were extra careful to avoid that mistake. TOTW 10, however, appears to have had the same fate befall it.

Twelve players across the starting TOTW lineup, and the sub bench, were revealed early in FIFA 21 through the Ultimate Team Weekend League player pick packs. The next Team of the Week isn’t released until Dec. 2, but the players arrived early.

Here are the dozen leaked players who have already been found:
