Apex Legends Hits 1M Players Right Off

Vince Zampella tweets about the success of yesterday's launch of Apex Legends. Word is the free-to-play battle royale hit the one million player threshold within the first eight hours of its launch: "I’m so overwhelmed right now, @PlayApex 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!!" There's also a post on reddit where Respawn recaps the launch. Word is to expect a small server patch this morning to address stability issues. They are also soliciting feedback:

The support and excitement for Apex Legends has been more than we could have imagined. The whole team is thrilled to see people loving the game as much as we do. We love the praise, but we also want to hear what could be better. A few things for example we’d love your feedback on:

  • How do weapons feel? Distinct? Samey?
  • Do Legend abilities feel effective?
  • Are you finding loot quickly enough? Is ammo too hard to find? Is a type of ammo feel to scarce?
  • What areas of the game could be explained better?
  • What do you wish Apex had that it doesn’t
  • What are your favorite cosmetics?

Tried it for kicks. The three party random PUB mode will kill it. You NEED to have at least 2 other friends to have fun with this.

It's very team based, and getting stuck with a team that doesn't use voice, or are retarded in some obvious way is basically game over.

User rate will drop off drastically simply because of this one thing. I sure as hell won't play it again without a couple of friends on my team.

With that said, the basic underlying gameplay is smooth, slick and could be quite a bit of fun. Wish PUBG ran as good as this, or had these production values.
