Apex Legends is giving Titanfall 2 multiplayer a small burst of life

Apex Legends has burst into the Battle Royale scene with a huge splash, dominating the market and blowing almost every other game out of the water.

It's pretty insane but APEX Legends was able to surpass 25 million players in a week. The game has been dominating on Twitch since its release and many players have loved what they have played so far. The game differentiates itself from the likes of Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in several ways, some of the biggest ways are its respawn mechanic and an emphasis on fast-paced movement.

While some have offered suggestions to Tfue on ways he can avoid stream snipers in his games, the superstar has pretty much made it clear that he would rather stop streaming the game than jump through all the hoops required to prevent it from happening. For reference, it took Fortnite three months to amass 30 million users.

The new battle royale game launched just one week ago on February 4th, and already boasts 25 million players, EA revealed on Monday. With the massive popularity of Respawn's free-to-play battle royale spin-off Apex Legends, some players are wondering what they might've missed out on when Titanfall 2 released back in October of 2016.

"Apex Legends", though, still has a long way to go before it's even in the same zip code as "Fortnite", which was released in 2017.

Apex Legends is a free-to-play game that can be played on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This key feature - which we didn't know we needed, but can't live without now - allows players to focus less on overwhelming inventory management and more on jumping right into the fight. This is still exciting news for mobile gamers, though. Many have hoped that the developers will add the ability for smaller teams and solo play too. "The community's excitement for Apex Legends is electric, and we feel it here at the studio".

And it does sound like Respawn is planning for some kind of Apex Legends crossplay support in the future.
