OC3D is reporting that Apex Legends already has 100,000 concurrent players on Steam. That may not seem huge, but it’s still impressive, being that the game launched just a few days ago on Steam.

When Apex Legends launched last year on Origin, it quickly gained a massive amount of players. In its first eight hours, it gained roughly one million players. Two weeks later, there were two million players. This achievement is a testament to the popularity of free-to-play, battle-royale games.

Apex Legends launched on Steam on November 4 with cross play, which attracted many new players, including those who didn’t want to deal with Origin. Sometimes, just being able to ditch another game launcher is all that it takes to win someone over.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
