Just as the Fortnite phenomenon was emote-dancing its way to becoming an untouchable force on the competitive gaming/Twitch throne, Respawn Entertainment pulled a "hold my beer" moment with their new viral hit Apex Legends. Over on ResetEra, member Nefer has noticed the uptick in players, and have made a post comparing the Titanfall 2 player count before and after ApexLegends'release.
Over 10 million gamers signed up for Apex Legends in the first three days of availability. It's probably the combination of the words "free to play" (free with in-game purchases, of course), battle royale (a mode that can any shooter in 2019 can't go without) and Titanfall, the beloved gaming universe in which the game is set.
United States players were responsible for $320 million of the half a billion total, that took the game 326 days to reach.
EA's new battle royale shooter Apex Legends has reached 25 million total players since its debut last week.
Only time will tell whether Apex Legends can sustain explosive growth and stick around for as long as Fortnite has. Similar to Fortnite, it offers paid microtransactions for cosmetics items, such as extra characters, player banners etc.as well as Apex Packs, that contain an array of random items. Sponsored by our friends at Twitch, the Rivals Apex Legends Challenge will take place this Tuesday the 12th and next Tuesday the 19th, with 48 of the biggest streamers on Twitch competing live in Apex Legends. It's also become a fixture of Twitch and YouTube, although that's also been true of other titles, most of which then faded into near-obscurity as many content creators moved back to games like Fortnite. Nearly everything in Legends can be obtained just by playing the game. Fortnite still has an extremely large players base sitting at around 200 million, as well as billions in the bank to improve the game.
Apex Legends seems like it could be well on the way to breaking some major Twitch records.
