A Week One
Recap from Vince Zampella
updates us on the state of Apex Legends one week
out from the launch of Respawn's free-to-play battle royale game. Word is the
game has now attracted 25 million players and counting: "We’re also thrilled to
announce that since last Monday, more than 25 million players have jumped into
the game, and over the weekend we had well over 2 million concurrent players at
our peak," explains the Respawn boss. "Like I said earlier, what a week!"
Apparently this success is even having a
halo effect on
(or at least a destiny effect). Vince also fills us in on more
of their future plans:
- First up, the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends
Challenge. Sponsored by our friends at Twitch, the Rivals Apex Legends
Challenge will take place this Tuesday the 12th and next Tuesday the 19th,
with 48 of the biggest streamers on Twitch competing live in Apex Legends.
We’ll be co-streaming all the action from our Apex Legends Twitch channel
- Then, later this week we’ll be celebrating
Valentine’s Day by introducing some limited-time Valentine’s Day themed
loot, so all you (Apex Legends) lovers out there keep your eyes open.
- Don’t forget, Season One kicks off in March,
introducing the debut of our Battle Pass as well as new Legends, weapons,
loot, and more.
