It\u2019s been only a month since the launching of Apex Legends, and the game is already iconic for it has been played and enjoyed by 50 million gamers, as reported by Vince Zampella of Respawn.\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s surreal because a few weeks back a lot of people haven\u2019t heard of the game, and it\u2019s word of mouth now. People talk about the game a lot both online and in person. The popularity of the game continually grows.\r\n\r\nGamers have utilized 158 million finishers, 1.23 billion ultimates, they\u2019ve been respawned 170 million times, and 31 billion pings have been placed.\r\n\r\nZampella has twitted his gratitude to the 50 million players who have played the game on its first month. He thanked the subscribers of the game for making Apex Legends special, and he promises there would be more surprises to come.\r\n\r\nThe astronomical figures aren\u2019t really surprising because, from the moment the game has been announced, Apex Legends has been making a buzz.\r\n\r\nOn the first gaming day, 2.5 million people have played the title, and the number bloomed to 10 million fans after three days. At the end of its primary week, the title has attracted over 25 million players.\r\n\r\nDaniel Ahmad, a gaming analyst, has compared the initial player number of Fortnite to Apex Legends, specifically about the battle royale mode of the two games.\r\n\r\nThe comparison was made on Twitter. Ahmad said Fortnite needed two weeks to reach 10 million gamers, and after 16 weeks, the game can\u2019t boast 50 million gamers have played it. Ahmad said it\u2019s the closest comparison he can make, and it\u2019s an interesting number. However, it should be noted that the battle royale landscapes of the two games are different.\r\n\r\nThe battle royale mode isn\u2019t really popular when the Fornite battle royale has been announced, and the mode came from Save the World, which can be called a mediocre game because it has not been well received.\r\n\r\nAlso, Fortnite didn\u2019t launch the game in a polished state. On the other hand, when Respawn launched Apex Legends, it\u2019s already polished, and that\u2019s a reason why the game gained high reviews.\r\n\r\nApex Legends is quickly catching up on Epic\u2019s behemoth. However, it still needs 150 million gamers. With the look of how things are going, the legend of Apex Legends will continue to grow.\r\n\r\nPC Gamer reported that Apex Legends brings the popularity of the battle royale mode better. Respawn Entertainment doesn\u2019t deviate from the battle royale formula. The developer just interpreted the concepts to make them better, and it benefits Apex Legends and the gaming community.
