Apex Legends might beat Fortnite to the punch with a ranked mode

Battlefield V Underperforms and EA Blames Single Player For It

Battlefield V Underperforms and EA Blames Single Player For It

The battle royale game will undoubtedly have a positive effect on EA's fourth quarter earnings. Apex Legends introduces new mechanics to the classic battle royale formula, reducing squad sizes to three, implementing jumpmasters, and granting players a way to revive their fallen teammates. After garnering 1 million unique users within 8 hours of its launch, the game has gone from strength to strength and now boasts of the achievement of adding 10 million players in a span of 3 days, a feat that Fortnite was able to achieve in 2 weeks. Showing Respawn's pedigree as a team of creatives who clearly game regularly themselves, we've got shakeups to the battle royale formula like respawns and finishers, right next to Titanfall-aping gunplay and knee slides keeping locomotion fresh.

In a blog post from earlier today, Respawn CEO Vince Zampella announced the milestone. From all of us at Respawn, thank you for giving us and Apex Legends a chance.

Apex Legends has just been released as of Monday, and while we've gotten busy on our livestreams for the last two days by showcasing the game on console (Xbox One) and then PC, we've got even more gameplay to bring to you in bite-sized chunks.

Democrats Cope With State Of The Union By Acting Out
Schumer took to the Senate floor ahead of Trump's speech and argued for 10 minutes the current state of the country is "chaos". Meanwhile, Democrats are sending a message with their invited guests , especially those who are running in the 2020 election.

The good news is that this doesn't look to be a widespread issue that is causing games like Apex Legends to stop working entirely. Thank you for joining us on this journey. Also, this is just the beginning as the developer has promised that there's a lot more to come this year.

As of now, Apex Legends doesn't support cross-platform play, although the feature is likely to become available in the future.

Another important achievement, which Zampella hasn't mentioned, is that Apex Legends is now the most popular game on Twitch.
