Apex Legends crossed 1 million concurrent players in under 72 hours

Apex Legends crossed 1 million concurrent players in under 72 hours

Following a surprise release (that was totally revealed days prior thanks to a whole host of leaks) Respawn and EA's Apex Legends is out in the wild.

The company, late Thursday, announced its latest title, Apex Legends, had reached 1 million concurrent players and 10 million total players in just 72 hours.

That was a a genius move because, despite there still being some leftover resentment that Apex Legends isn't a proper Titanfall sequel, it's damn good, and a real breath of fresh air in the battle royale space. Even with the pedigree of developer Respawn Entertainment, no one could have predicted the success it's garnered. Players can not open more than 500 crates without finding an Heirloom Set, but those who have already found Wraith's set will not be able to find another until more Heirloom Sets are added to the game.

After all, most other Battle Royale games like Blackout and Fortnite allow you to play alone without a squad.

SCOTUS blocks Louisiana abortion law from taking effect
As a result of Thursday's order, Act 620 will remain blocked while the Court considers taking the case on the merits. If it turned out they couldn't comply, Kavanaugh said , the doctors could return to court.

Of course, this may change in future with the start of Apex Legends season one and the upcoming battle pass in March, but at this early stage, you'll struggle to get all the cosmetics you want unless you get very lucky with your Apex Packs. It would be insane if it wasn't in the works as we speak.

Problem is, sometimes Apex Legends won't begin searching because it says the party isn't ready. However, it's unclear what that will look like or how it fits into what will probably be another busy release schedule of games this year.
