Ninja's Team Wins Apex Legends Twitch Rivals Tournament

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

Apex Legends, the video game rival to Epic Games' smash hit Fortnite, has amassed 25 million registered users just one week after its launch, publisher Electronic Arts announced late Monday. It had taken Fortnite over two weeks to reach that milestone.

Let's not underestimate just how fast the player base is building, either: 25 million in a week is pretty incredible when you consider that Fortnite only hit 10 million players in twice that timeframe. Like Fortnite, Apex Legends is free to download and is designed as a last-man-standing "battle royale" title.

If you haven't heard of "Apex Legends", there's a reason for that.

Some 600 people were able to reach SDF territory on Sunday after fleeing the fighting, the Observatory said. Therefore, he said, the SDF is taking more measures to create a corridor to make sure they remain safe.

Apex Legends is already available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Despite the sheer number of battle royale titles that have launched over the a year ago, none of them could really hold a candle to Fortnite, at least not as far as Twitch viewership was concerned. Fortnite managed it just once, while Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has done so several times - the FPS's major esports competitions are numerous most-watched events on the entire platform. When it comes to battle royale games, characters only differ cosmetically. That means Fortnite (which has pretty much been at the top of the gameplay chart for each platform since early previous year, only dropping occasionally) is now facing some serious competition from Apex Legends.

What makes Apex Legends so popular? It looks as though the developers have been working on that, mulling over the idea of Solo and Duo modes that allow players to play alone or partner with one other person.

Peak viewership numbers tell a similar story, with Apex Legends securing 491,894 viewers and Fortnite landing at 326,454. Following its release, the game had numerous high-profile streamers play as an advertisement, but many continued playing well after their advertising slots were over.
