Apex Legends is an amazingly enjoyable and fast-paced Battle Royale that literally took the free-to-play gaming scenario by storm. A tale of a true underdog, nobody expected Apex Legend’s popularity to rise so quickly, reaching an all-time high of 50 million players even before its Season 1 launch.
Respawn’s latest take on the Battle Royale genre surprised even the most avid FPS players thanks to its flawless and engaging gunplay, quirky character selection, colorful graphics and strategic focus on teamwork. Although it’s still early to say how successful this game is going to be on the long run due to some questionable choices made by EA, with $92 million earned across all platforms during its launch month, Apex Legends may have a chance to leave its main competitors PUBG and Fortnite eating the dust!
