Apex Legends surpasses 100 million players. Respawn Entertainment’s free-to-play battle royale achieves a new milestone; it recently launched on Nintendo Switch and is coming soon to mobile.
EA and Respawn Entertainment have announced that Apex Legends, the free-to-play battle royale, surpasses 100 million unique players in just over two years since its launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One; it came to Nintendo Switch this past March. “The 100 million player base confirms Respawn’s dedication to evolving the video game through its innovative content updates to the online service, as well as proof of the deep history of the video game that has excited fans and immersed them in the season after season,” the company says. In this way, it manages to become one of the three great free-to-play options in the genre alongside Fortnite Battle Royale and Call of Duty: Warzone.

“With a diverse cast of 16 Legends, three constantly changing maps, seasonal events, and major updates to come, Apex Legends continues to offer players a competitive and refined gameplay experience.

Titanfall’s ties with Titanfall will be closed soon
Apex Legends Season 9 will connect more with the universe of Titanfall, the shooter saga with which Respawn Entertainment became known. As revealed by Chad Grenier, game director at Respawn, he has promised “a lot” of content based on Titanfall: “we’ve said it to other people before: if you’re fans of Titanfall, keep an eye out for Season 9 because there’s going to be some cool stuff.” A new character, Blisk, was recently leaked, whose ultimate ability is to summon a Titan that will move automatically.
“What happens in Titanfall is a war. Apex is what happens after the war; for example, what is it like to live in this place? So we’re trying to mix Titanfall with that because Titanfall is very much part of the same universe,” according to the team.
