Fix Apex Legends Crash

It's the new video game that has taken the world by storm but what is Apex Legends?

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.

Further bolstering the streaming momentum behind the game, there's also the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge, which pits European Union teams against North American squads, featuring 48 of the biggest streamers on Twitch. While Apex Legends seems to be taking names, and is a huge success for both EA, and Respawn, some might have forgotten that Titanfall 2 is a pretty badass game in itself.

Currently, Apex Legends only supports squads of three players. After one week, the game has already surpassed 25 million gamers and has "well over two million" concurrent players, according to Respawn CEO Vince Zampella.

The resulting viewership was not only stronger than any other new release from this year or the holiday season, but it was also stronger than what any game has had since The International saw Dota 2 get 35.09M hours watched over the course of one week in August.

Yet despite his unproductive two years with the franchise, coach Brett Brown said on Friday he was truly sad to see Fultz leave. If it does not convey, the 76ers will receive second-round picks in the 2022 and 2023 draft.

In 8 hours of release, the game reached 1 million players. Following its release, the game had numerous high-profile streamers play as an advertisement, but many continued playing well after their advertising slots were over.

Apex Legends continues to grow.

Despite being a big-budget title from well-known gamemaker EA ("Madden", "FIFA", "Battlefield"), "Apex Legends", which this weekend dethroned video-game phenomenon "Fortnite" in a number of areas, launched without advertising.

Analysts from Baird said that the update should provide investors with better visibility that "Apex Legends" could be a "meaningful hit" for EA over the coming year. The early part of a game is all about finding weapons quickly; later, if you survive, you can try to find more effective guns that will make you deadlier as you work toward being the last team standing.
