Apex Legends has just been released as of Monday, and while we've gotten busy on our livestreams for the last two days by showcasing the game on console (Xbox One) and then PC, we've got even more gameplay to bring to you in bite-sized chunks.

Thankfully, unlike the mechanically shallow Fortnite and polish-needing H1Z1 though, Apex Legends is a remarkably strong game from top to bottom.

And other people are most definitely playing it, but there's also a lot of fans who are watching it too on Twitch because, as of writing this article, it's now the top viewed game with 145K viewers. Another reason we think that the game won't get a single player campaign anytime soon is that the game is primarily free to play. As it's also a free-to-play game, it's expected to take on Fortnite in the future - assuming the game's success continues.

In addition to the aforementioned player count, Vince Zampella said that Apex reached 1 million concurrent players. It isn't certain whether Respawn will be able to maintain the same trajectory, but it's an impressive feat in an unprecedented amount of time.

Apex Legends distinguishes itself from the competition with its unique characters, each with distinct abilities and personalities, as well as the fact that if you play your cards right you can revive your dead squadmates.

Duchess of Sussex's 'best friends' rally to her defense
I'm telling you I don't want to communicate through the media , and you're asking me to communicate through the media. It was raining and muddy outside, so the dogs got all dirty, and she's wiping them off with towels.

"If you're having trouble seeing your friends online or sending invites on Origin, we're looking into it, and we'll let you know when we have more info", the EA Support message reads.

This is just the beginning!

We really doubt a single player mode will be added on as the studio is apparently working on a new Titanfall title for later this year. After all, it is free.

We've been impressed with Apex Legends so far.
