Apex Legends on PS4, Xbox One, and PC recently got a new update, and in this update Respawn Entertainment added a much-needed feature that polite people have been dying for: the ability to say "you're welcome." As you will know, you've always been able to thank other players, but you could never reciprocate the good manners, well, until now. Apparently the "you're welcome button" is thanks to one developer, Carlos Pineda, a senior gameplay designer, who was inspired by various demand for the feature. The best part of the button is it can't be used sarcastically either. It can only be used when someone thanks you.

As you will know, playing games online with strangers is a rollercoaster that often can be a toxic experience, so I'm always done for more options to be polite and nice to each other. Like Pineda says, it's not a big feature or one that actually impacts the game, but it's a pleasant little touch, and one that should add a bit more comradely to the game for those that want it.

"Respawn Entertainment’s surprise release of Apex Legends put a new spin on the battle royale genre, which seemed like it’d been worn about as thin as it could be," reads a snippet from our official review of the game. "Apex Legends’ hero shooter route works so well that it makes one wonder how this was never done before, but Respawn did players one better than just throwing another twist into the battle royale formula: it made an outstanding game."
