Previously, Respawn Entertainment had Solos as a limited-time event in Apex Legends. Given how well-received it was, they’re now giving another highly-demanded mode, Duos Mode, a try as well starting 5th November 2019.
Unlike other battle royales, Apex Legends uses characters who each come with their own special powers. This makes balancing around modes like Solos and Duos a little more difficult than it is in something like PUBG or Fortnite. They’re doing what they can to keep the game balanced even when it’s moving into a mode that the game wasn’t designed around.
By keeping the modes limited time, it keeps them feeling special. Sure, it sucks for anyone who view Solos as the best way to play, but I would guess that most players are sticking to the 3-person teams the game was designed around. Having a wackier mode is fun for the short term, but it might split the player base and hurt the game overall if it was made permanent.
The Halloween-themed Shadowfall mode was well-received. Especially how creative it was on the whole “zombies” concept, many have enjoyed the twist in gameplay that made it a surprisingly refreshing experience. Let’s see if Duos Mode in Apex Legends will be able to do the same.
Apex Legends is currently available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin for free. It’s expected to appear on Steam soon.
Pokdepinion: Personally, I’m still hoping for a 4-man game of Apex, though I’m aware this can greatly shift the game balance. I’m still gonna go give Duos a try at least.
