Apex Legends played by 10 million players in three days
Friday, February 8, 2019 - 15:49 GMT

10 million players have downloaded and played the free battle royale game Apex Legends within a 72 hour period. In those three days there was a peak of one million simultaneous players.


With 10 million players in the first three days, Apex Legends is growing faster than Fortnite at the time of its release. That game reached the same number in October 2017, which was about two weeks after its battle royale mode released.

On game streaming platform Twitch the game has also been at the top of the list of most popular games for several days. At the time of writing, it attracts 218,900 viewers, while 78,000 people watch Fortnite streams.

The 10 million milestone is significant, but in no way reflects the popularity of the game. A noteworthy percentage of players will download the game just to see what it is like and uninstall it again within a couple of days.

Apex Legends is set in the Titanfall universe and takes place after the events of Titanfall 2. It is free to play and contains microtransactions in the form of weapon and character skins.

Apex Legends released on February 4, 2019, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
