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

More than 25 million players have now tried Apex Legends, Respawn's Vince Zampella announced in a blog post. The new free-to-play battle royale shooter that's set in the Titanfall universe has come out the gates swinging, and it's only getting more popular by the day.

"Apex Legends took the chart by storm this week to land comfortably in the top spot, and by "comfortably" we mean more than doubling the amount of players for the #2 title Fortnite", notes TrueAchievements. The game captured 2.5 million players within the first day of its release and, two days later, that number climbed to a record-breaking 10 million players-a milestone that took previous record-holder "Fortnite" two weeks to achieve. Season One of Apex Legends will begin in March with the introduction of new weapons and loot, as well as new Legends of course - and a Battle Pass will be available for purchase. Major competitors PUBG and Blackout are both paid-for titles, and the fact that the barrier for entry is so low on PS4, Xbox One and PC for Apex is likely why it's doing so well. Naturally, players had to know more.

Only time will tell whether Apex Legends can sustain explosive growth and stick around for as long as Fortnite has. "The community's excitement for Apex Legends is electric, and we feel it here at the studio".
