It looks like the newest 60-player battle royale shooter Apex Legends is a success. The game has amassed 1 million unique players in just 8 hours! Respawn studio head Vince Zampella confirmed the news on Twitter: “I’m so overwhelmed right now. Apex Legends broke a million unique players in under 8 hours. Thank you so much for showing up and being part of this with Respawn you are amazing!!”
These are very impressive numbers, even for a free to play game. Apex Legends was actually built on the remnants of Titalfall 3, which is no longer in development.
Gamers seem pretty happy with the game so far, if you haven’t checked it out take a look at the gameplay trailer below.
