Crazy numbers. This game is a massive hit.

Dude its Vinz COD Zampellas baby.
The dude commands respect in my books.

So glad for the success here since TF2 never got the success what it deserved.

Livingthedream10d ago

Lmao @ the disagrees, they're probably fortnite fanboys

bluefox7559d ago

Or maybe they're just tired of the BR fad?
...nah, it's probably what you said.

Jin_Sakai9d ago

“Or maybe they're just tired of the BR fad?“

It’s not a fad. They’re still games and Apex Legends is fun.

Smitty20209d ago

It really is an enjoyable game,can’t wait for duos and solo modes to come out

Potnoodle9999d ago

Ugh sorry but so sick of BR now. It’s not a fad but it doesn’t even deserve half sales and the revenue it generates. (As most are f2p anyway)
Can’t wait til the industry moves on and stops acting like this is the most essential genre. It will never disappear but does everyone really need to have a go? It’s essentially a new game mode. But everyone is creating entire games based off it?? Meh

Christopher9d ago

Fads exist when new gameplay models are evolved. Last generation it was all about how everything was a shooter. Before that it was ARPGs. Next gen it will be something else.

I'm loving this game at the moment and I really didn't think I would. A free-to-play Battle Royale game released with no hype by EA? Had all the signs of a cynical cash grab chasing a trend but its actually really fun

Smitty20209d ago

Love owt for free but I am a Yorkshireman it’s expected 😂😂😂

BLAKHOODe10d ago

I'm just gonna sit back and wait for Fortnite's reaction. Competition is GREAT for us consumers and Apex is going to push Fortnite to up it's game. Hopefully, in a big way. My biggest worry is that dark cloud hovering over Apex called EA.

Giblet_Head10d ago

Just too bad about the name. Very generic sounding.

xX-oldboy-Xx10d ago

If that's the only negative they're doing alright I reckon. Personally having a great time with mates.

Livingthedream10d ago

Great game brother! Thing is really damn good, higher player count would be nice, but I'm thinking they couldn't keep the 60 fps. Maybe in the future as they improve the engine.

AscendedHuman10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Agreed. Sounds like some off brand name prop for a sitcom to avoid copyright. Like "Game Sphere" or "Death Kill City".

victorMaje10d ago

I have a theory it was meant to be TF3’s BR mode a la BLOPS4’s Blackout :) Then they dropped TF3 for now & rebranded it into Apex Legends.
Still hoping for a TF3 announcement next year though. TF2 SP was a gem.
In the end Respawn has very talented developers. They know how to make great games.

Giblet_Head10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Sounds legit. After failing to capture an audience with the last two entries, I'm not shocked they'd have no confidence in a third, probably pulled words out of a hat and scrapped everything but that. Everything about this seems last minute, the name especially.

victorMaje9d ago

Plus, if you look at the 3 red bars that animate down in the background of the loading screens, one could think it’s because of the 3 man squads, or, Titanfall...3 :)

spicelicka9d ago

The whole style of the game is incredibly generic, just like most extra popular games out there. Fortnite, Overwatch, Call of duty, etc. all generic as fuck. I think it's part of an approachability tactic. With that level of popularity they can't risk a style that not everyone will like, so they combine everything in one. Also kids are a huge market and they don't usually have a particular taste. I fuckin hate it, but it is what it is I guess.

I can't believe this game is a hit especially with the billions of other BR games completely flooding the market right now.

xX-oldboy-Xx10d ago

Billions? Could've gone with hundreds but whatever.

It does enough different and does them extremely well it has massive almost guaranteed.

They've just gotta fix some connection issues and they're are golden.

gangsta_red10d ago

I should have said zillions. Keep hearing about the connection issues and I just read an article that Respawn is definitely going to fix those

xX-oldboy-Xx10d ago

It's the only thing the game can be slated for, the rest is top shelf.

xX-oldboy-Xx10d ago

DevilGearHill666 - even hundreds was an exaggeration, it wasn't lost on me what gangsta said.

Come mate - keep up.

It's like the 4th Major one, others are pretty low budget. So many other genres are flooding the market as well, it's just that BR has this popularity right now, and some people don't like it, because it's mainstream.

shadowraiden9d ago

i mean we didnt get bored of team deathmatch that has been around for 30ish years.
BR is just a game mode thats most popular nowadays. TDM,Capture the Flag etc all were popular over the years BR is the current most popular game mode thats all.

conanlifts9d ago

Have you played it? The game is awesome.

BizarroUltraman9d ago (Edited 9d ago )

Fornite, Blackout, Pubg and Apex Legends are the only ones Im aware of. Someone can add any I missed. Ive never played Fornite or Pubg. Blackout and Apex Legends are dope tho.
