  • Is Apex Legends Free? Does Apex Legends have crossplay

EA is hoping to reproduce the success of "Fortnite", which blends the "The Hunger Games" movie trilogy and "Minecraft" video game and has developed a huge following with teenagers and older gamers. Another factor is its quality, according to Ahmad, who points out that numerous popular streamers have been raving about its game play. But when can we expect it to arrive?

Free-to-play Apex Legends could be a competitor to the wildly popular game Fortnite, Bank of America Merrill Lynch suggested in a note, upgrading shares to buy. Not too shabby for a game that is just a week old - it was released on February 4 - and now has the likes of Dr Disrespect, Ninja, and Shroud among its star players. "I also expect that this game will have tremendous value in Asia, and we're in conversions about that".

If you haven't heard of "Apex Legends", there's a reason for that.

Currently, Apex Legends only supports squads of three players. They have now teased a special event for the game soon. In 2018, Fortnite pulled in a whopping $385 million on iOS alone. There's nothing truly groundbreaking here, but it's the vast amount of little things that Apex does extremely well that makes it stand out from the rest.

Solo and Duo modes might be coming to Apex Legends

The good news is that Respawn and EA have both said that a "premium" game in the Titanfall universe is set to debut later this year.

Firstly, there's the problems with Fortnite. Incolas points out that battle royale streamer Ninja, who's been broadcasting the game since its release, wasn't even streaming yesterday. Over on ResetEra, member Nefer has noticed the uptick in players, and have made a post comparing the Titanfall 2 player count before and after Apex Legends' release. You may have something to look forward to once the initial rush is over, especially if hints of solo and duo modes prove accurate.

In fact, the game is doing so well, it's resurrected the playerbase of Respawn's last game, too. 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.
