“Apex Legends” Gains Over 10 Million Players In THREE DAYS

Move over, Fortnite, a new battle royale game has hit the market and has quickly overtaken it!

EA and ReSpawn Entertainment’s “Apex Legends“, a new game set in the video game world of “TitanFall”, recently launched their free-to-play game across many systems. It’s quickly become one of the top streamed games on Twitch, and made EA’s stock explode this week, making their highest gain in over a year.

It should come as no surprise that the game is capturing the attention of gamers everywhere, but no one expected it to be this successful so quickly. So much so that they have already surpassed 10 million players in a mere three days!

Respawn’s Vince Zampella left a message for fans on the Apex Legends blog, which reads:

In 72 hours, over 10 million players have jumped into Apex Legends and we’ve breached 1 million concurrent players!

This has been a truly incredible journey. We tested and tweaked. We argued and agreed. We got to a point where we felt some magic. We knew it would be risky to take the franchise in this direction, to go free to play, and do a surprise launch. But we fell in love with Apex Legends and wanted, needed, other people to play it too.

We hoped you’d love it as much as us, but never in our wildest dreams could we have expected the outpouring of support and positivity we’ve seen. From all of us at Respawn, thank you for giving us and Apex Legends a chance. Thank you for joining us on this journey. This is just the beginning! We have so much more in store for you this year.

See you in the arena!

“Apex Legends” is a class-based shooter like Overwatch, with randomized elements like PUBG. The focus is team-based combat, pitting 60 players grouped into three-man groups fighting to determine who the last team standing will be. The game has improved on elements from its predecessors, and is just really fun!

There are currently eight playable characters in the game, with plans to start adding more very soon.

“Battle Royale: The Complete Collection” coming to DVD & Blu-Ray in March

“Battle Royale”. A title that has shocked, thrilled and unnerved audiences. A film whose fiendishly simple premise has inspired many imitations, including the upcoming “The Hunger Games” motion picture. Based on the 1999 global best-seller by Koushun Takami, the futuristic tale first came to the screen in 2000, directed by the legendary Kinju Fukasaku. Authors, filmmakers and film fans the world over consider the film and its 2003 sequel “Battle Royale II: Requiem” sacred cinematic classics. And now, fans can own them on HD Blu-ray and DVD!

On March 20th, Anchor Bay Entertainment brings the “Battle Royale: The Complete Collection” to Blu-ray and DVD for the first time in North America.

In 2000, director Kinji Fukasaku unleashed Battle Royale, his violently poetic epic about an innocent group of Junior High students forced by the government to hunt and kill their classmates for sport. It was nominated for 10 Japanese Academy Awards®, launched a global phenomenon, and banned from screens by frightened civic groups and distributors across America. Three years later, the equally disturbing sequel – featuring a new class, new rules, and a brutal terrorist plot by the first film’s young survivors – triggered its own tragic firestorm around the world. Now for the first time ever, you can see it all: Experience the entire Battle Royale saga on 4 discs that forever blasts open one of the most potent, shocking and savagely influential sagas in motion picture history.
