In a week Apex Legends has become one of the most popular games this year and easily one of the best battle royale games. The title has seen a surge in active players and today it hit 25 million players and 2 million concurrent players.
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.
Lmao @ the disagrees, they're probably fortnite fanboys
Or maybe they're just tired of the BR fad? ...nah, it's probably what you said.
“Or maybe they're just tired of the BR fad?“ It’s not a fad. They’re still games and Apex Legends is fun.
It really is an enjoyable game,can’t wait for duos and solo modes to come out
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
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
everybody is surprised
Love owt for free but I am a Yorkshireman it’s expected 😂😂😂
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.
Just too bad about the name. Very generic sounding.
If that's the only negative they're doing alright I reckon. Personally having a great time with mates.
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.
Agreed. Sounds like some off brand name prop for a sitcom to avoid copyright. Like "Game Sphere" or "Death Kill City".
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.
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.
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 :)
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.
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.
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
It's the only thing the game can be slated for, the rest is top shelf.
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.
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.
Have you played it? The game is awesome.
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.
Bisarro: Agents of Mayhem
I've had a few games on it it's nit bad at all. Needs a solo mode and nighttime map
There will be a Solo mode. and possibly other maps or changes to the map.
Crazy numbers for a crazy good game.
Crazy numbers, played some of it over the weekend, thought it was fun and very good
Sheep be flockin
It’s fun but still a battle royal game at its core. Fun a bit then gets old
Yes if you're not winning bahahaha
Ya I suck for sure but just the nature of the game is a turn off. I don’t want to die once and then have to wait for my teammates to likely die nor do I want to run around the map with no action hiding and waiting till the end to win
I can respect that. That's why I always run towards the gunfire lol
I prefer PUBG
I'm over BR but I did give this game a crack as I'm a massive supporter of Respawn. Well polished game, probably the most polished BR game to date including amazing user friendly features like pinging etc. If the building mechanics of FortNiteBR annoys you than this is the BR game for you. I did delete the game btw as previously mentioned I'm over BR lol. So there's my unbiased opinion.
To bad you can't play with someone on the same wifi or else I would enjoy this game allot more, only happens with this game.
Now 25 million is impressive.
Thanks to playstation!! GREATNESS
Yeah 25 million is massive. Crazy numbers. This game has become a huge success and everyone who has played has said nothing but positive things.
It’s great I’m loving it. I’m already being rinsed by some serious pro players though, dayam boiiiii
BR isn’t really my thing either but I dropped about 3 hrs into it to see what the hype was all about and it’s pretty good. The gameplay is solid and shooting mechanics are up there with Destiny. I doubt I’ll play it much but fans of this game mode will love it and it looks like it has staying power. Fortnite should be nervous.
am bored of it already wanting some more content in the way of DLC, the skin business is absoloute boring to grind for. I mean for a free game you can't complain, but the novelty has worn off already for me. It is the best BR of the bunch though I think, they just don't have legs for me to keep playing.
I absolutely love this game.
