Interface design, e-sports, visual communication design, user experience design, gaming psychology


Battle Royale games have made their mark in the field of E-Sports in recent years. International tournaments held centered on these games provide millions of dollars in cash prizes. Games such as Fortnite, Pubg, Apex Legends and Call of Duty are at the forefront of the games that reach the widest audience. Supported by strong sponsors, the games are offered to the audience through broadcaster channels on Twitch and Youtube platforms 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This research is based on the analysis of user experience qualities about the Apex Legends, a game often played and watched in tournaments by the author. Achieving a unique user experience level by covering digital design, visual communication design, graphic design, product design, interior architecture and all related design fields requires emphasizing the interdisciplinary design qualities of the game. In this context, the study covers the exploration and explanation of the unique features of the game centered on the provided user experience qualities.
