On Monday, February 11, a team of Apex Legends players consisting of Scubby, SHAFFER and ssjfpsTV entered into a game on King's Canyon, aiming to secure a victory, and possibly a new record.

Currently, Apex Legends only lets players battle it out in squads of three, which is somewhat unusual for the battle royale genre.

"During the call, he said: ".we think that cross-play and cross-progress is going to be a very important part of our future, and you should anticipate that we will be doing more in that space.We absolutely are looking at that in the context of Apex, and we'll be looking at that across our portfolio over time, and we think about franchises with tremendously large communities like Federation Internationale de Football Association and think that they would absolutely benefit from cross-play and cross-progress as more and more people come into these big communities". "Fortnite" maker Epic Games is privately held, though Chinese investment firm Tencent Holding (OTC: TCEHY) holds about a 40 percent stake.

While the initial numbers mark a victory for EA, the company still has a long way to go to match Fortnite's more than 200 million subscribers.

While some have offered suggestions to Tfue on ways he can avoid stream snipers in his games, the superstar has pretty much made it clear that he would rather stop streaming the game than jump through all the hoops required to prevent it from happening.

Fortnite remains the hottest battle royale game on the planet for now, but Apex Legends is fighting to take over.

Apex Legends is now available for free on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

An initial advantage over Call of Duty:Black Out and PUBG is that Apex is free-to-play. Even if you've played the game a bit already, how do you know which character you should choose as your main? This is still exciting news for mobile gamers, though.

There are rumours that ranked play could be coming to Apex Legends while the season 1 Battle Pass launch is just around the corner.

And Apex Legends appears to be growing fast.
