Apex Legends has reached a whole new simultaneous user peak on Steam.
The free game Battle Royale – which came out on Steam in November 2020 after almost 18 months as an exclusive EA Origin – hit 198,235 simultaneous players on Steam yesterday, its highest simultaneous user peak according to SteamDB (thanks, Dexerto).
The recent influx of new and returning players checking out season 8 means that Apex Legends is currently the fifth most played game on Steam right now, making it more popular than GTA 5, Rainbow Six Siege and Team Fortress 2.
It is also in the top ten most watched games on Twitch, which means that more people tune in to watch Apex Legends than FIFA 21
Basic caustics in Apex Legends? I have bad news – developer Respawn recently said that the popular Legend will “attract a little attention in the near future.”
For a while, Caustic was one of those legends on the list with which players rarely spent a lot of quality time, but after recent tweaks and shortcomings, he now boasts the highest profit margins in games that last more than 20 minutes and began to dominate the matches.
The news came just days after fans’ favorite Wraith increased the size of her hitbox. As explained in the Season 8 patch notes, Respawn hopes to control Wraith’s power without irritating her abilities, and one way to do so is to change her hitbox.
