On November 5, EA released their shareware Apex Legends Battle Royale to PC on Steam. It looks like the start was extremely successful.
As SteamDB statistics show, already on the first day, the peak of players was about 90 thousand, which is already at the level of other store leaders like Rainbow Six Siege, Destiny 2 and Grand Theft Auto V. On the second day, the peak increased slightly to 100 thousand players.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to track how many of these players have not played the game before, and how many have switched from Origin, since it does not have such open statistics.
Season 7 kicked off with the release of Apex Legends on Steam . It added a new map, hero and first vehicle.
