Apex Legends is a multiplayer online battle royale that is developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts(EA). Since the rise of battle royale genre there have been a big demand for new games in the genre. Most players were used to playing Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. As both games were the only biggest stars in the genre, a lot of hardcore battle royale fans were hungry for another big game. Nobody knew anything about the game in January and it was launched in February 4th on PC, Xbox One and PS4. Apex Legends sudden release filled that starvation right away and people all over the world loved it. Releasing the full game without any announcements was a marketing strategy of EA and it seem to be working pretty great when we look at the player count numbers of Apex Legends. So far it reached more than 50 million players worldwide in 28 days. When compared to other popular battle royales, Apex Legends had a better start in it’s early days.
Perhaps it’s success is entirely based on the hype surrounding the battle royale genre but there is one thing for sure. Apex Legends is a game that should not be underestimated by any means. It’s free-to-play, has a great gameplay and consists some of the greatest features in the Titanfall series. Though there are no wall runnings and Titans, the vibe it gives the player is something that can not be explained by words. We highly recommend every FPS lover to at least try this amazing battle royale experience.
