Apex Legends has attracted over 10 million players in three days.
Multiplayer shooter Legends from Apex companies, Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts was released on 5 February without fanfare. Project in the genre of Battle Royale was released for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and is distributed on a shareware model. In fact, the game was absent a preliminary marketing campaign, and information about her began to appear only a day before the release.
But that didn’t stop Apex Legends to literally blow up the market of shareware games. In less than three days, the user base grew to 10 million people, and the maximum peak of players online has exceeded 1 million people.
A stunning result for a new game, which until recently no one heard. In addition, over the coming weekend these figures will surely increase. This week Apex Legends was the most popular game in Twitch, beating League of Legends, Dota 2 and Fortnite.
The head of the Studio Respawn Entertainment Vince Zampella (Vince Zampella) thanked the players: “We knew that it is risky to start a new battle Royal format free-to-play without prior announcement. But we fell in love with Apex Legends and wanted the other players loved our draft. However, even in my wildest dreams, we could not expect such support and positivity that you have. Thank you for joining us in this journey. This is only the beginning! This year we will have many more surprises for you. See you at the arena!”.
