It has been only a week since the launch of Apex Legends, and this battle royale style shooter title has managed to attract 25 million players in such a short period.
This latest addition to the battle royale style shooter has performed incredibly well amongst the other alternatives for the genre, and it is likely to experience a boost in the number of players in the future.
Apex legends have proved itself amongst the gaming community, by providing dynamic appearances and new content for gamers to experience in the battle royale genre.
Vince Zampella, CEO at Respawn informed that Apex Legends had surpassed the 25 million player milestone. He further stated that the title managed to cross 2 million concurrent player mark for the past weekend.
Apex Legends is free to play and is available for different platforms like PS4, Xbox One, and PC which undoubtedly has boosted the player count.
Many would argue that the total player count denotes any individual who has downloaded the game and played once, still overviewing the concurrent players reflects a positive beginning for the title.
Other titles like PUBG and Fortnite had times when they managed to cross the 3 million, and Fortnite even passed the 10 million mark during the in-game Marshmello Concert. Still, these stats can’t be considered as permanent and are liable to change every day.
Zampella further hinted that Apex Legends would soon feature new Twitch tournaments and include unique Valentine’s Day loot for players to experience more content in the future.
He said that they are planning to include many more features to the game and hopefully the game would last for coming ten years. But it all depends on the response of the players and community as introducing new content would be of waste if players don’t play the game in the first place.
It is expected that Respawn has plans to introduce new characters, items, and loots for players to indulge with the game. Also, it is speculated that the game may include new maps for players to explore.
Other titles like PUBG have four different maps with different bios, similar is expected for Apex Legends. And interestingly it is also likely that Respawn my feature new modes with solo and duos gameplay to provide players with a variety of options to choose from.
But it all depends on the number of concurrent players that access the game, seeing the current mark of 2 million active players it is possible Apex Legends would eventually feature fresh content with every new update in the future.
