Fortnite rival Apex Legends hits 25M users in just one week

PUBG and Fortnite competitor Apex Legends hits 10 million downloads within 3 days of launch: Here’s why

Just as the Fortnite phenomenon was emote-dancing its way to becoming an untouchable force on the competitive gaming/Twitch throne, Respawn Entertainment pulled a "hold my beer" moment with their new viral hit Apex Legends.

Apex Legends has crossed the 25 million player threshold in just a week. But if it doesn't acknowledge the complaints of the community in season eight, Fortnite may slowly lose its crown as the biggest battle royale game.

Take-Two, however, was falling after BMO Capital Markets lowered its rating on the stock to Underperform, on fears that its signature game "Red Dead Redemption 2" may be waning in popularity.

U.S. players were responsible for $320 million of the half a billion total, that took the game 326 days to reach.

Omar responded to one critic who asked the MI congresswoman who she believes is paying American politicians to support Israel. Omar's tweets drew a rebuke from Democratic House leaders, who called on her to apologize on Monday.

Better yet, this success has had a delightful knock-on effect on the studio's previous first-person shooter of 2016, Titanfall 2, a stellar sequel that famously undersold after being squeezed between the releases of Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The game debuted in October 2016 and was mostly praised for its single-player campaign.

As someone who has lost touch with the battle royale genre, this game has revitalized that feeling that I first had when I couldn't stop playing PUBG.

Valentine's Day will see specially themed loot available for a limited time and March will ring in the beginning of Season One, complete with new legends, weapons, and more. All told, that's an extra 9,500 people. 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.

The 25 million milestone was shared by the game's official Twitter account, complete with the comment that the success of the past week has been beyond Respawn and EA's wildest imagination. Choosing the right guns is a big part of your strategy in Apex Legends.
