Apex Legends Hits 50 Million Players Worldwide (VIDEO)
Exactly a month after it was released, massively popular battle royale game Apex Legends has officially hit 50 million players worldwide! Developer Respawn Entertainment broke the news earlier today via the official Apex Legends Twitter page, releasing a celebratory video featuring some interesting stat numbers to commemorate the event. The video can be seen below:

The video itself is pretty hilarious, starting off with some friendly fire by way of sticking an ally Pathfinder with an Arc Star before they are seep grappling themselves into an enemy squad, when the Arc Star detonates and the enemy squad is wiped out. What follows is a list of game stats such as respawn numbers, deathboxes found, and a funny nod to the meme-worthy Mozambique Shotgun.
Respawn Entertainment has a lot planned for Apex Legends, with numerous leaks pointing to loads of new Legends on the way for players to enjoy. Additionally, there are also whispers of new maps coming in the near future. Between that and the bevvy of new weapons both released and planned, fans can look forward to a bright future (and hopefully lots of wins) as the game matures.
Apex Legends is now available free-to-play for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
