Apex Legends, the latest and greatest battle royale game, has already hit 50 million players. With just a month of life, that’s an incredible feat.
If you’re out of the loop on Apex Legends and wondering what all the fuss is about, no worries. We’ve got you covered. It’s a free-to-play hero-based battle royale game from Respawn that’s set in the Titanfall universe.
A successor to Titanfall 2, the game forces around sixty players to fight each other on an island called the Outlands. Teams consist of three players, so it’s not all-for-one. It’s more all-for-three.
The official Apex Legends Twitter account shared a tweet and a video thanking fans for their support and saying that they ‘can’t wait’ to show everyone what’s next.

One of the reasons the 50 million player mark is so stunning is that, unlike fellow popular battle royale game Fortnite, Apex Legends is only available on three platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
Fortnite, on the other hand, is available on approximately every device known to man short of the Amazon Alexa and the Commodore 64. It’s basically the Skyrim of battle royale games.
Whether Apex Legends will be able to maintain its current hot streak is uncertain, but we can hope that Respawn try their best to keep the game relevant.
Apex Legends is available for free on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
