CouRageJD EA

In case you've missed all the news about Apex Legends over the last week: it's a new free-to-play battle royale made by Respawn and published by Electronic Arts.

It looks as though the Titanfall-based shooter might take further inspiration from its competitors if dataminers are to be believed, as the developer has been working on Solo and Duo game modes. The viewing numbers for Apex Legends have crushed the competition, in large part due to the number of top streamers making the switch to the new game. Well, all of those rumors turned out to be true and Apex Legends is now taking over the video game world with already over ten million players. No price tag is what played a major role in helping the game reach such a target.

An update on the official EA website from Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella announced the news of the milestone, which also notes that the game hosted two million concurrent players during its peak over the weekend. Like Fortnite, Apex Legends is free to download and is designed as a last-man-standing "battle royale" title.

"Apex Legends" is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Origin for PC.

We've spent quite a bit of time with Apex Legends at this point, and we've definitely determined that some guns are better than others. As soon as we hear any more about these, we'll let you know. When it comes to battle royale games, characters only differ cosmetically.

"Apex Legends" stunning success should also greatly reduce the frustration with management sometimes expressed by investors. Furthermore, the group drop-in system gives teams a more efficient way to land in close proximity to each other; no fall damage is like a gift from the gaming gods; and respawning downed teammates gives players a second chance to get back in to the fight.
