Apex Legends Shared Its 50 Million Player Milestone

Postby mmocs com » 06 Mar 2019, 2:49

Apex Legends has gained more than 50 million players in its first month since launching, breaking a record previously set by fellow battle royale sensation Fortnite. The rapid rise of the new video game, which is free to download on PS4, Xbox One and PC platforms, has drawn comparisons with Fortnite due to its similar gameplay and astonishing growth. Within one week of being released it had attracted more than 25 million players. By comparison, Fortnite took two weeks to reach the relatively modest 10 million player milestone, and more than three months to reach 50 million players.

This is after hitting 1 million players in eight hours, 10 million in three days and 25 million in its first week. 50 million in a month shows the pace is finally slowing a bit, as if that matters at all with this record breaking playerbase accumulation. But this 50 million number really does need to be recognized for the absolutely stunning feat that it is. We don’t have a new concurrent number as best I can tell, though at 25 million it was 2 million concurrents, so it could be close to double that now.

Apex Legends uses the same free-to-play business model as many other games, offering its initial download for no cost but also using optional in-game purchases to drive revenue. Such a business model has paid enormous dividends for Epic Games' Fortnite, which generated $2.4 billion in 2018. Buy Cheap Apex Coins from Mmocs.com gain a 3% discount by using the code “MMOCSVIP”.

It’s also important to recognize that Fortnite still reigns supreme when it comes to availability, with its mobile presence especially significant. (Apex Legends is only available on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.) And the game recently hit a new concurrent player record, with 7.6 million players online two weeks ago — without any particular reason or event to encourage the wave.

The growth of Apex Legends has been assisted by popular video game streamers like Ninja and DrDisrespect broadcasting live feeds of them playing it. Fortnite remains hugely popular but the latest update to the game hinted that developer Epic Games recognises the threat posed by its rival. Among the new updates for Season 8 was an improved way of communicating between players using a ping-like system.

Respawn Entertainment’s new battle royale game Apex Legends is a hit. A big hit. Perhaps “on track to be the biggest battle royale game yet” kind of big. This morning Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella popped up on Twitter to announce that Apex Legends managed to surpass 50 million players in its first month on the market. A pretty legendary accomplishment, I’d say!
