Nexon Introduced APEX - A Clone of Battlefield Heroes & Team Fortress 2?
With the official site (http://apex.nexon.com/) released, APEX, Nexon's new online shooting game about to start closed beta in South Korea, has been claimed to be a clone recently. In the players' opinion, the game seems like a mix of EA's Battlefield: Heroes and Valve's Team Fortress 2.
Team Fortress 2
In this respect, Nexon expressed that though APEX bears cartoon-styled graphics like Battlefield: Heroes and Team Fortress 2, its gameplay is totally different from the other two's, and there're also many differences lying in the weapon and character features and the gaming modes. According to Nexon, suppose Battlefield: Heroes and Team Fortress 2 emphasize "strategy", "fast pace" would be what APEX lays stress on. What's more, APEX's gaming progress and some details are also different from those of the above mentioned two.
Apex - 1st CBT
As a casual action TPS, APEX is mainly characterized by simple, fast-paced, uplifting combats and glistering graphics. It runs fast, and allows players to experience exciting combats through simple controls, with a variety of gaming modes made available. The game highlights "Frontal Attack" (i.e. fixed front angel of view), which enables the players who are unfamiliar with shooting games to start off and enjoy the game easily. In APEX, besides the PvP combat mode, the PvE mode that requires teamwork is also integrated. Meanwhile, various mini-games are also featured in this game.
"Frontal Attack": Fixed Angle of View
In comparison with the common shooting games, the fixed angle of view, one of the key features of APEX, provides players with a wider visual field, and makes them able to enjoy the special combating fun more freely. The feature also makes it easier to control APEX, and thus allows players to enjoy the game more directly.
Different from other TPS games, APEX features an abundance of auxiliary items appearing during combat, including those designed for attack like the hand grenade and air blasting tool, as well as those able to enlarge characters' body. Players can conduct and win the combats with the help of such items.
Revenge is My Conviction: Revenge System
The Revenge System is also the key feature of APEX. It's better to say that the system is designed to make players more immersed in the game than to say that it is a vehicle for players' revenge.

Various Gaming Modes
Though APEX is a military game where guns and hand grenades are offered, it tries to avoid bloody scenes and present players a more friendly and harmonious gaming atmosphere. Gaming modes like PvP and PvE, and many mini-games are also available in the game.
