We’ve written so many articles about how wonderful Fortnite is and about it’s overwhelming popularity, that’s it’s refreshing to write that Fortnite is no longer winning the battle of being the top First Person Shooter, (FPS) game online.
Apex Legends, which is a battle royale-style game from Electronic Arts has smashed all of Fortnite records for downloads and viewership since its release three weeks ago. Many of the FPS streaming games stars have helped to powered that fast rise of Apex. Meanwhile, the esports teams are in a big rush to sign up as many talented players as possible, but some in the industry are warning not to over commit because what goes up, must come down.
Apex Legends is developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. Apex Legends has taken all the main popular aspects of Fortnite and added their own few twists. Fortnite Royale, of course, is a game where a player is dropped onto a battle ground with 100 other players and the battle ground shrinks as the game progesses. The object is to gather food, water, weapons, etc. etc, and kill everyone else. The last man standing wins.
Just like Fortnite and most other FPS games, Apex is free to download and to play.
