Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends is a surprising success for the company and EA. As a new Battle Royale, it is pulling in crazy numbers on both Twitch and in general. They have now teased a special event for the game soon.
In a blog post by Respawn Entertainment founder Vince Zampella, he teased something special for Apex Legends on Valentine’s Day which will be held on February 14.
Later this week we’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day by introducing some limited-time Valentine’s Day themed loot, so all you (Apex Legends) lovers out there keep your eyes open.
The big update regarding the player count was that Apex Legends has amassed more than 25 million players with over 2 million concurrent players at its peak. This is a great number for a game that launched barely a week ago.
Respawn Entertainment has previously worked on the Titanfall series and Apex Legends is set in the same universe as Titanfall but lacks any exosuits. It features the same Battle Royale based gameplay that made Fortnite popular but keeps the gameplay polished and has good game balance, which is what is keeping the players attached to the game and coming back for more.
Apex Legends is a free-to-play game that can be played on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
