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

PUBG and Fortnite competitor Apex Legends hits 10 million downloads within 3 days of launch: Here’s why

Over the weekend there were more than 2 million players at one time playing the game.

On Monday, February 11, a team of Apex Legends players consisting of Scubby, SHAFFER and ssjfpsTV entered into a game on King's Canyon, aiming to secure a victory, and possibly a new record. By hour 72, AL hit a whopping 10 million players, beating out Fortnite, which took two weeks to hit that mark. During the Electronic Arts Q3 2019 earnings call it seems that a possible porting of the game to mobile devices has been mentioned to try to fight the domain, for now undisputed, of Fortnite especially in the Asian territory. Literally. A little over a week ago, there were rumors flying around that EA flew out a bunch of streamers to play a new free to play battle royale title that they would stealth announce and release the following Monday. Here's a few reasons why Apex Legends stands out from the rest.

The big update regarding the player count was that Apex Legends has amassed more than 25 million players with over 2 million concurrent players at its peak.

In fact, it's been one week to the day since Apex Legends launched, and to say it's giving Fortnite a run for its money would be understating the situation at least a little bit. It looks as though the developers have been working on that, mulling over the idea of Solo and Duo modes that allow players to play alone or partner with one other person. Even sans titans and wall-running, Apex's snappy shooting and smooth sliding made enough players curious to know more about Respawn's earlier work. And of course, it's a true free-to-play game where you only need to spend money if you want characters and items quickly.

There are rumours that ranked play could be coming to Apex Legends while the season 1 Battle Pass launch is just around the corner.

Only time will tell whether Apex Legends can sustain explosive growth and stick around for as long as Fortnite has.
