Apex Legends Reached 70 Million Players

Apex Legends is back on top of the battle royale world after months of hardship. It took two seasons for Respawn Entertainment to win back players and acquire new ones.

An Incredible Start

Apex Legends started with a big bang during it’s initial release. The game hit 50 million players in just 28 days. However, problems started to loom over. First of all, the hacking problem was rampant in the game. Respawn Entertainment and EA were cornered with this problem for months. The second problem was the number of bugs in the game. Some of them was as serious as the instant death of a player. But maybe the most problematic thing was the game’s content. Respawn Entertainment is a team-based, hero shooter Battle Royale. It has a lot of elements from many different gaming genres. However, over the first months, we have seen players drop the game because the content was not fresh enough, and this is largely due to standards that Fortnite set with their weekly updates.

Season 3 Was The Turning Point

These problems continued until season 3, which is when the tables turned. Apex Legends Season 3 was expected to be no different. But the game started to rise popularity again, and the new World’s Edge is a major part of their revival. There is a very good explanation for this. The content is substantial now and the bugs, as well as the hackers, are being quarantined. The new map is bigger and allows players to play as they want. A bigger map means that players will make use of the entire arsenal from marksman weapons to CQC ones. Also, the new Legend, Crypto,  is enjoyed by the community. He is one of the few additions to an online game that did not cause a huge uproar.

Apex Legends Reached 70 Million Players

Apex Legends just passed a historic mark. 70 Million players and rising. This is a significant number, even though they are still far away from Fortnite. Respawn Entertainment and EA was able to turn the tables. Of course, this was great for them because EA is under heavy fire by the gaming community. This will allow them to allocate more resources such as developers for Apex Legends.

Apex Legends managed to win players over in a very hard genre. As we all know, Battle Royale games are down to personal choice. For example, a realistic shooter like PUBG may not appeal to a Fortnite player. But Apex Legends managed to achieve this historical 70 million players mark, even though they have entered the genre much later.
