Apex Legends hits 1 Million Players in less than 8 hours.

The surprise release of new Battle Royale game Apex Legends didn’t slip past eager players as over a million of them have logged in the first day alone.

From Respawn Entertainment, (the minds behind the Modern Warfare series at Activision) Apex Legends is an offshoot of the Titanfall series where 60 mercenaries play in blood sports for prizes until only one team remains.

Early impressions for the game are good. I personally enjoyed my preview time but walked away with some concerns around the armor and team composition decisions. (No duos? Really?) The game is free to play and this no doubt helped it reach early player numbers but will it survive the juggernauts of Fortnite, PUBG and Blackout?

It’s going to be fun finding out!
