Chappie Creator And Respawn Want To Collaborate On Apex Legends

Apex Legends has impressed everyone in the gaming community and beyond, even catching the eye of District 9 creator and director of Elysium, Neill Blomkamp.

Blomkamp has expressed an interest in having his robot-gangster character, Chappie, added into Apex and Respawn boss Vince Zampella is all for the idea.

Chappie, the eponymous robot from the 2015 movie, already bears a strikingly similar resemblance to Apex‘s character Pathfinder, so why not just add him in?

Over on Twitter, Blomkamp responded to a tweet asking about Chappie in Apex, saying that yes, he’s totally down for it.

Zampella echoed his sentiments, meaning that yeah, this really could happen!

Fingers crossed!

Apex has been smashing the competition left right and centre, and according to a recent Reddit post, it wants to work hand-in-hand with its ever-growing community to ensure a seamless and player-friendly game for all.

In the same Reddit post, which comes from Respawn community manager Jayfresh_Respawn, it was revealed that a huge  huge number of players have already been banned from the free-to-play battle royale.

The post states: “As of today over 16,000 cheaters have been identified and banned from the game. Cheaters suck. If you run into one, please try and capture the evidence and let us know here:

“Even if you don’t get proof, get their ID and flag it and we can investigate the account. We have heard your feedback about a report feature in the game. I’ll just say that’s a very good idea :)”

It’s good to hear that Respawn isn’t messing around when it comes to cheaters!

Apex Legends is only getting bigger and better, so Fortnite had better watch out!
