Fortnite rival Apex Legends hits 25M users in just one week

The dreaded connection error screen in Apex Legends

Like Fortnite and Overwatch, the free game features loot boxes that players can purchase to acquire items of varying value in the game. He dealt 5,376 damage in a period of 18 minutes and 11 seconds, and amassed 33 solo kills in total.

Now playing: Watch this: How is Apex Legends different from Fortnite and PUBG? Dizzy killed over half the players on the server.

It's doing so well that during the recent Electronic Arts Q3 2019 earnings call, Andrew Wilson, CEO of EA Games said that the company is also looking to bring the game to mobile too.

Take-Two, however, was falling after BMO Capital Markets lowered its rating on the stock to Underperform, on fears that its signature game "Red Dead Redemption 2" may be waning in popularity. Apex Legends is doing so well it's boosted Titanfall 2's player numbers big time, and now Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella has announced the game has already surpassed 25 million players.


Let's not underestimate just how fast the player base is building, either: 25 million in a week is pretty incredible when you consider that Fortnite only hit 10 million players in twice that timeframe.

Unfortunately, Apex Legends fans could face a similarly agonising wait until the title appears on the latest-generation Nintendo console, which can be played on a HD TV via the bundled dock, or on-the-go using the built-in 720p touchscreen. Fortnite managed it just once, while Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has done so several times - the FPS's major esports competitions are numerous most-watched events on the entire platform.

There are rumours that ranked play could be coming to Apex Legends while the season 1 Battle Pass launch is just around the corner. All told, that's an extra 9,500 people. But the newly released Apex Legends is already threatening to make Fortnite as passé as the games that title surpassed previous year. It's not like there's a community event going on, which sometimes happens for less-than-new titles, either. Apex Legends is wildly popular on Twitch.

The good news is that Respawn and EA have both said that a "premium" game in the Titanfall universe is set to debut later this year.
