Apex Legends Helping Electronic Arts Fight Off Fortnite

The dreaded connection error screen in Apex Legends

In fact, it's been one week to the day since Apex Legends launched, and to say it's giving Fortnite a run for its money would be understating the situation at least a little bit.

The launch of EA's new battle royale game Apex Legends completely shattered the expectations of what a new release can do on Twitch, with 50% more viewership than League of Legends.

"During the call, he said: ".we think that cross-play and cross-progress is going to be a very important part of our future, and you should anticipate that we will be doing more in that space.We absolutely are looking at that in the context of Apex, and we'll be looking at that across our portfolio over time, and we think about franchises with tremendously large communities like Federation Internationale de Football Association and think that they would absolutely benefit from cross-play and cross-progress as more and more people come into these big communities".

Stream Sniping has been a major concern for games such as Fortnite and PUBG, despite the numerous attempts by both companies to implement fixes to stop it from happening. Dizzy killed over half the players on the server. (Zampella is head of Respawn Entertainment, which made Apex Legends and its predecessor, Titanfall.) "Our goal is to build this game with you, our community, so keep giving us your feedback because we really are listening". It reached more than 1 million players in under eight hours and hit 10 million in less than 72.

In an official EA blog post, the studio's chief Vince Zampella revealed that since the game's launch, it has raked in 25 million players and has touched a peak 2 million concurrent players in that span.

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'.

"Apex Legends" stunning success should also greatly reduce the frustration with management sometimes expressed by investors. Apex Legends is a little like Fortnite crossed with Overwatch - with heroes (Legends) to choose from - but it's squad-based with teams of three players pitted against each other (although duo squads and a solo mode could well be in the pipeline). Folks just like Apex Legends enough to check out Titanfall 2.

The news comes nearly a week after the company lowered its yearly revenue projections following weak sales of its "Battlefield V" title, that had sent its stock plunging 18 percent.
