This week, The Gaming Hub Podcast discusses the launch of Apex Legends, the new Battle Royale shooter from Respawn. It has received a lot of positive feedback, so how do we like it? Also, what does this mean for the future of Titanfall and for Battlefield V’s own battle royale mode, Firestorm. Is Electronic Arts allowing similar games and modes under its umbrella to compete with each other yet again?
In other news, Xbox Live will be headed to IOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch soon. We get into what this could mean for the Nintendo Switch, and how much of Xbox Live we think will actually be accessible on the Nintendo platform. Also, we discuss the recent string of collaborations between Xbox and Nintendo, and what that relationship could mean for gaming in the future. Finally, rumors surfaced that the PlayStation 5 will have backwards compatibility – what does that mean for the next gen landscape?
