Apex Legends possibly coming to mobile and with cross-platform play too

Electronic Arts" new game "Apex Legends' is smashing records right out of the gate. That means Fortnite (which has pretty much been at the top of the gameplay chart for each platform since early past year, only dropping occasionally) is now facing some serious competition from Apex Legends.

Apex Legends is now available for free on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. 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. 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).

As of Friday, "Apex Legends" was the most viewed on gaming live-streaming network Twitch.

Apex Legends, the video game rival to Epic Games' smash hit Fortnite, has amassed 25 million registered users just one week after its launch, publisher Electronic Arts announced late Monday. It seems like Apex Legends couldn't have come at a better time and their "different go-to-market strategy" has done the trick.

Check out his reaction to the Fultz trade on Instagram. "I'd be lying if I didn't feel sad". "It was two emotions I had". Brown admitted that, in recent weeks, he'd begun to wonder if things would ever work out for Fultz in Philadelphia.

There's a good reason why the big cheeses on Twitch are being thanked directly in the tweet, because Apex Legends streamers are a big part of how the battle royale shooter has been pushed so hard.

Much of Fortnite's success can be attributed to its support for so many platforms; it can now be played on Nintendo Switch and even Android and iOS, where it has no competition from EA for now. And of course, it's a true free-to-play game where you only need to spend money if you want characters and items quickly.

So, the question that is on everyone's mind, is Apex Legends really "the Fortnite Killer"?

Not only has the game seen an unprecedented amount of players login in such a short amount of time, but it also has managed to hit a peak concurrent player count of "well over two million".
