Within 72-Hours, Apex Legends Sees 10M Unique Players & Over 1M Concurrent

Just three days ago, game developer Respawn Entertainment, makers of Titanfall, launched its free-to-play version set within the same universe and within that time frame, it reached a player milestone that Fortnite also did only after two weeks.

Apex Legends launched earlier this week, amassing over one million unique players in its first eight hours, and over 2.5 million in its first 24.

For now, we know that the next proper Titanfall game is at least on the minds of the people who make the games, even if they're currently preoccupied with giving Apex Legends a strong start.

It'll be hard for Apex Legends to beat the eventual records hit by PUBG and Fortnite, which have racked up hundreds of millions of players.

Update: Something that we missed initially is that Apex also pushed past the 1 million concurrent players point.

The "Age of the Battle Royale" has yet to come to an end, as seen with the recent release and popularity of Apex Legends. To check out the free-to-play Apex Legends, head on over to the game's landing page and pick your poison: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC.

We hoped you'd love it as much as us, but never in our wildest dreams could we have expected the outpouring of support and positivity we've seen.

The result is something that's incredibly easy to leap into (hence why the genre is the biggest thing in gaming right now), but there's a learning curve to Apex Legends that you'll only surmount after a good handful matches - and some helpful pointers on what to do.

This is just the beginning!

Some Trackers do cost more material than others so that's something you'll want to be aware of. We have so much more in store for you this year.
