When a month ago Apex Legends debuted, nobody could have imagined how successful the game will be. The new game from Respawn Entertainment appeared virtually out of nowhere, instantly arousing a lot of interest. Later we received further information proving the growing popularity of the title. Now, a month after the release, the developer has revealed that more than 50 million players have already familiarized themselves with Apex Legends.
The information was shared in a special video, which also gives many other interesting statistics. So far, players have activated their most powerful abilities 1.23 billion times, and after their death, they have made 170 million returns to the battlefield. In addition, at least 16.5 million graveyards, so-called death boxes (boxes containing the equipment of defeated players) were found. In addition, a handful of unusual "data" and some of the more interesting moments captured by streamers were presented. You can check all this in the material provided below.
It cannot be denied that even 50 million players are not much compared to the result achieved by the reiging Fortnite: Battle Royale, which by the end of 2018 managed to attract more than 200 million players. However, Epic Games took three months to reach 40 million registered users, a figure that also included "basic" Fortnite players. It shouldn't be forgotten that we heard about Epic Games's work long before its release, as well as about the addition of a battle royal mode.Meanwhile, Apex Legends did not exist in the consciousness of players before its official launch on February 4. Now, however, the game is becoming one of the titans of the battle royale market, and if the game keeps growing at this pace, dethroning Fortnite is well within the realm of possibilities.
