Apex Legends Racks Up 50 Million Players in Its First Month

And this is all just within the first full month. It is doing better than that actually since the number of users that have played Apex Legends is now outpacing Fortnite, which is the current global champion in the Battle Royale genre.

If you're out of the loop on Apex Legends and wondering what all the fuss is about, no worries.

The way this would work is once a player disconnects, the body of their character would stand immobile for 45 seconds, during which the player will have a chance to restart their game and reconnect.

You pinged, you slid, you got in fights with care packages. Master your Legend's abilities, make strategic calls on the fly, and use your team's strengths to your advantage in vicious 60-player matches. It's more all-for-three.

Volvo to limit the top speed on all its cars to 180km/h
Although speed limits exist in most countries he said that people are still exceeding those limits by a wide margin. For some background, within the current Volvo range, the lowest top speed is 118mph, and the highest is 155mph.

Fortnite, on the other hand, is available on approximately every device known to man short of the Amazon Alexa and the Commodore 64.

In any case, this is an impressive result which will be interesting to see in the near future as the two games keep claiming the top spots in the Battle Royale genre.

The California-based video game developer launched Apex Legends back on February 4th.

It's been one month to the day since Apex Legends had a surprise launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and what a month it's been.
