    It's not even the same fucking genre to be competition.

    If Titanfall died out and Respawn were still allowed to make Apex, EA won't be getting rid of Bioware

    Apex is getting pushed VERY hard as a cushion for the bad financial report and anthem bad reception. (they bribed nearly ALL the top streamers)

    EA ain't stupid, they know anthem will crash and burn.
    Battlefront lootboxes disaster utterly destroyed all their gameplay/monetization model and the market for multi pve fps is saturated and in decline.

    From what I hear about Apex is that it’s gaining traction due to:

    1.) F2P model that feels fair with regular power ups. And you can also craft some of the items thst you can buy. So it doesn’t feel like a super grind.
    2.) Intuitive UI system
    3.) No voice chat and instead it uses a ping system to communicate with players

    So the game seems like a p. good F2P game. And it shows what happens when EA is not directly involved in development.

    Isn't Apex and Anthem kinda different genre though?

    Apex is a battle royale with heroes power right? Some sort of TF2/Overwatch and Fortinite combo?

    Meanwhile, Anthem is more of Warframe/Destiny experience.

    That said, yeah Anthem is not received well even by mainstream gaming so I doubt EA has any hope of it being a success.

    Both are still mmo squad+hero based fps, and one is free.
    Gameplay is a huge overlap.

    Yep, that's it.

    Thing is, both are different genres even though they are similar in a nutshell.

    I enjoyed Warframe greatly while having 0 interest in Battle Royale genre, hero power or not.

    Not saying that Anthem will be successful because of that, but the failing of Anthem will not be caused by Apex being similar to it on the basic level.

    Genre distinctions are quite blurred these days. It's basically a "Shooty game with friends" for the mass consumer. Yeah, it's not a full overlap, of course, but it's major enough to cause issues. And let's not forget other publishers making the same mistake before - stuff like HL2 and VtM: Bloodlines launching on the same day because lol they're different genres, and how well that reflected on Bloodlines' sales (yes, this was actually in their postmortem).

    One's a well-received flavor of the month game, the other was a poorly received beta launch with access table that's apparently gotten memed out, same publisher. Why the fuck would someone buy at launch or preorder when they can play for free for now, and then wait til the price point on Anthem drops to 50% or whatever, and buy in then? As an added bonus, it might actually be fully patched by then!

    So yeah, definitely a case of shooting their own sales in the foot right there.

    A looter shooter is probably the smartest thing Bioware ever did in recent times since Triple-A RPGs are counterproductive and lame anyways.

    I already said I'd be the Codex guinea pig on this one. The game was free, so it hardly takes any effort.

    Godspeed, sir. I was frustrated by what I played in the demo. I hope the finished product is more fun. Let us know what you think of the controls please. The controls, and the shallow story/uninteresting characters, were probably my biggest concerns.
