In Season 5: Fortune’s Favor, Respawn added a brand new story-based PvE mode referred to as Quest. In a GameSpot Play For All interview, Apex Legends sport director Chad Grenier spoke to us about Respawn’s resolution so as to add a narrative mode to a multiplayer-focused sport and teased that how Apex Legends’ story is informed could look “a bit of bit completely different” in Season 6.
“Quest was actually simply an experiment to see how we may inform extra story in [Apex Legends],” Grenier stated. “We have now a workforce of people that love to inform tales. Earlier than Apex, we made a marketing campaign, Titanfall 2, and informed a ton of story there. After which shifting on to creating a multiplayer-only sport, we’re left questioning, ‘How can we inform a narrative in a battle royale sport? Is that even doable?’ And we discovered methods to do this by means of transmedia storytelling and our character teases and the dialogue–so Quests is simply an evolution of making an attempt to inform a narrative in a multiplayer sport.”
Grenier continued: “And so we have been listening to numerous the suggestions and I believe, basically, folks take pleasure in taking part in Quest. If something, the suggestions has simply been that folks need extra of that lore and storytelling so we’re discovering new methods to deliver that content material in future seasons–just listening and studying, we’re making an attempt to evolve the way in which that we’re doing it and discover what works finest. Season 6 could also be a bit of bit completely different from 5 and that is simply us iterating and making an attempt to strive new issues and see what works and see what would not work and hearken to the followers.”
