The game came out a week ago and thanks to the battle royale craze tons of players are already in a mood of testing something new.

- Don’t forget, Season One kicks off in March, introducing the debut of our Battle Pass as well as new Legends, weapons, loot, and more.
EA touted the game as The Next Evolution of Battle Royale Genre, it is still unclear what is driving players towards the game. The increasing number of players on Apex Legends is a matter of concern for competitors.
