Can Apex Legends really beat Fortnite? Twitch stats suggest it can

CouRageJD EA

Apex Legends is also set to officially enter Season One in March, which will bring even more new Legends, weapons, loot and more.

Unfortunately, Apex Legends fans could face a similarly agonising wait until the title appears on the latest-generation Nintendo console, which can be played on a HD TV via the bundled dock, or on-the-go using the built-in 720p touchscreen. Apex Legends is doing so well it's boosted Titanfall 2's player numbers big time, and now Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella has announced the game has already surpassed 25 million players. But if it doesn't acknowledge the complaints of the community in season eight, Fortnite may slowly lose its crown as the biggest battle royale game.

The new battle royale game developed by Respawn Entertainment - the studio behind the Titanfall franchise - has reached the mark of 25 million players in just a week since its launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows platform.

Apex Legends still has a long way to go to catch up to Fortnite's dominance. The game debuted in October 2016 and was mostly praised for its single-player campaign.

Manveer Heir, a game designer who has worked with EA, told video game guide site Waypoint in November 2017 month he had seen people 'literally spend £11,400 ($15,000) on Mass Effect multiplayer cards'.

The Twitch Rivals Apex Legend Challenge will run on February 12 and 19, and will feature some of the most popular Twitch streamers competing in game.

Yes. It's not hard to see how this has helped in the incredible growth of the game, as Apex Legends followed in the footsteps of Fortnite by making the game free to play for everyone.

Something else that's likely helping grow the Titanfall 2 playerbase is its frequent discounts on Xbox One and its inclusion in the EA Access subscription service which lets subscribers play it for free.

Despite all of the heights Apex Legends has already reached, it's clear that things won't be stopping anytime soon.
