Apex Legends, a free-to-play battle royale game published by Electronic Arts, launched one month ago. It quickly became a hit; within its first 72 hours on the market, over 10 million players have joined its exciting online battles, a milestone developer Respawn Entertainment confirmed through a blog post.

And Apex‘s momentum has continued, with Respawn CEO Vince Zampella confirming 50 million players have logged in within its first month:

Apex isn’t the first free-to-play battle royale title available (Epic Games’ Fortnite helped pioneer this model), but if this early success is anything to go by, Respwan’s game could become a genre hallmark.
Apex is available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows. As Epic Games recently confirmed the contents of Fortnite‘s new season pass, Apex‘s fans are awaiting news concerning its first season battle pass.
