Team up with three friends to cooperatively tackle heart-pounding story missions as powerful God Eaters, humanity’s last hope against the relentless Aragami threat.

Take on the role of a God Eater, the last line of defense against the monstrous beings known as Aragami which have devastated the world. God Eaters are unique individuals with special abilities to wield powerful God Arc weaponry, the only known weapons that can destroy an Aragami. God Arc weapons come in a variety of melee and ranged types including swords, hammers, sickles, spears, shotguns, sniper rifles, and more. New to GOD EATER 3 are dual bladed and Heavy Moon weapons, each of which comes with unique transforming functions to extend their utility and provide additional attack options and damage. Players can determine which weapon works best for their playstyle and hone its intricacies when taking on missions in Story Mode or online with other GOD EATER 3 players.
 
GOD EATER 3 incorporates new combat mechanics and customization options to create dynamic fights that change the flow of battles. After devouring an enemy, players can activate Burst Arts which change all normal attacks into special attacks. Players can also choose between several Burst Arts, as well as the specific effects of the Burst Art, to suit their play style. In addition to Burst Arts, a new Dive ability increases the speed of combat by having players race headlong towards enemies for swift attacks, keeping constant pressure on the opposition.
 
GOD EATER 3 continues BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment’s mantra of ‘more fun for everyone’ by providing a rich world and exciting combat encounters for friends to share,” said Jackie Simmons, Brand Manager at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “Feel the rush of excitement by teaming up and taking down an exceptionally hard fought Aragami.”
 
Team up with three other God Eaters to tackle story missions together or combine forces with seven other players for an Assault Mission to experience the largest group battles ever seen in a GOD EATER title. Cooperating and fighting as a team can help engage the Battle Support System. By fighting next to teammates, players can unleash this new ability which shares various power-ups to help the entire team get through tough fights and secure victory.
 
GOD EATER 3 is now available in the Americas for the PlayStation 4 system and STEAM with an ESRB rating of “T” for Teen.

RESPAWN LAUNCHES APEX LEGENDS, A FREE-TO-PLAY BATTLE ROYALE EXPERIENCE AVAILABLE NOW ON PC, PS4, AND XBOX ONE

Prepare for the Next Evolution of Battle Royale

Today Electronic Arts Inc. and Respawn Entertainment launched Apex Legends™, a free-to-play* battle royale shooter available right now on Origin for PCPlayStation®4 and Xbox One. Set in the Titanfall™ universe, Apex Legends shakes up the battle royale genre with a cast of unique characters, squad-based gameplay, innovative mechanics and more.

Apex Legends delivers a squad-based battle royale experience with a uniquely Respawn flavour. Players will select from one of eight Legends – each with their own unique abilities and playstyles – and the last team standing wins. Combatants can choose from unique characters like Bloodhound, the tracker who can see recent enemy activity on the map, or Lifeline, a battlefield medic who can shield teammates and bring them back from the brink of death. Balanced squads and teamwork are critical, as each Legend is easy to pick up and learn but challenging to master.
 
“Our goal in every game you play is that you come in with a plan, but you leave with a story,” said Drew McCoy, Lead Producer for Apex Legends. “We’re building a game that is not only going to deliver a fun and memorable experience at launch, but something we can keep growing for a long time to come.”
 
Apex Legends showcases several new genre-leading innovations, starting before players even start the match. Once players are ready to begin, they’ll choose their drop point with the Jumpmaster system, giving each squad full control over exactly where they drop in. Is it smarter to head straight for the most valuable loot and risk early conflict with other teams, or make for one of the outlying areas to plot an attack and let other squads pick each other off?
 
The innovations don’t stop there as Apex Legends also delivers Respawn Beacons, one-time use locations where defeated teammates can be revived, a contextual Ping communication system that allows players to call out enemies, weapons, locations and more with the push of a button, and an intelligent inventory system which automatically attaches gear and equipment to the appropriate weapons once players pick them up. All together it creates a battle royale experience unlike any other, complete with Respawn’s commitment to top-notch quality and fun.
 
The first season of Apex Legends is scheduled to kick off in March and will give players the opportunity to purchase a Battle Pass to gain access to exclusive cosmetic items earned through gameplay. Apex Legends will follow a seasonal model with each themed season bringing new content to the game in the form of new weapons, new Legends, new skins and more.
