Apex Legends Quickly Surpasses Fortnite

CouRageJD EA

In contrast, Sony usually allows players to access online multiplayer in free-to-play games without a PlayStation Plus membership. But when can we expect it to arrive?

Apex Legends launched worldwide on February 5, 2019 but has already taken millions of players across the world - 25 million to be exact - by storm.

Solo is perhaps one of the most requested game modes within Apex Legends, with replies from Respawn CEO Vince Zampella making it look like it is on the cards. While the player count is nothing short of impressive, there are also plans of introducing a mobile version of the hit game in the foreseeable future.

"Apex Legends", though, still has a long way to go before it's even in the same zip code as "Fortnite", which was released in 2017. Each character adds exciting new ways to approach a match with a different level of strategy mixed in. But if the success of PUBG and Fortnite on mobile is any indication, EA might well bring it to smartphones soon. The game has been dominating on Twitch since its release and many players have loved what they have played so far. In 2018, Fortnite pulled in a whopping $385 million on iOS alone.

El Chapo cries after he arrives in NY
Joaquín Guzmán, the feared Mexican drug lord known worldwide as " El Chapo ", has been found guilty of 10 charges in his NY trial. El Chapo escaped from Mexican prisons twice, but was recaptured in 2016, and extradited to the United States in January 2017.

Folks just like Apex Legends enough to check out Titanfall 2. It's a first-person shooter that's set in the Titanfall universe, which means fans of that franchise will be very familiar with how the game works.

Firstly, there's the problems with Fortnite.

"The game came out on the day of the Super Bowl and EA instead relied on Twitch and YouTube to make it the biggest launch ever for a battle royale game", says Daniel Ahmad, an analyst at Niko Partners, who says EA's move was unusual. Both are excellent figures given that only a handful of games and categories routinely pull in six-digit viewership numbers, but before Apex Legends launched, Fortnite was often in the top spot on the Twitch directory. When you see your favorite streamer having fun with a new title, you want to try it out.
