Just a few days ago, we reported that Apex Legends Reached 10 million players in under three days. Now, the game has reached over 25 million players worldwide in its first week after launch.
Apex Legends is continuing to grow its player base thanks to its fun and polished gameplay. The battle royale shooter game is developed by Respawn Entertainment, who has been racking up the number of players doubling over the weekend.
We’re also thrilled to announce that since last Monday, more than 25 million players have jumped into the game, and over the weekend we had well over 2 million concurrent players at our peak.
While also celebrating this feat, CEO Vince Zampella also announced that a limited time loot feature is also coming in celebration of Valentine’s Day, which is on Thursday. There is not many details as to what the loot will consist of, though we expect to hear from the developers very soon.
I can’t tell you everything we have planned, and we are looking at changes based on player feedback and experiences. However, I do want to call out a few things happening over the next couple of weeks.
- First up, the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge. Sponsored by our friends at Twitch, the Rivals Apex Legends Challenge will take place this Tuesday the 12th and next Tuesday the 19th, with 48 of the biggest streamers on Twitch competing live in Apex Legends. We’ll be co-streaming all the action from our Apex Legends Twitch channel here: www.twitch.tv/playapex.
- Then, later this week we’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day by introducing some limited-time Valentine’s Day themed loot, so all you (Apex Legends) lovers out there keep your eyes open.
- Don’t forget, Season One kicks off in March, introducing the debut of our Battle Pass as well as new Legends, weapons, loot, and more.
What a week! Since we launched Apex Legends last week on Monday we’ve seen the creation of an Apex Legends community that is excited, thriving, and full of great feedback and ideas. Our goal is to build this game with you, our community, so keep giving us your feedback because we really are listening.
A new battle pass was already hinted before and we might get more details of it coming by the end of this month. Stay tuned for additional updates regarding the content that is heading for Apex Legends very soon.
