Respawn Entertainment released its new combat royal game, Apex Legends, a week ago and the game has already got a big following. On Tuesday, the studio's CEO, Vince Zampella, gave fans an update on the game's first week focusing on how popular Apex Legends are and what they could look forward to in the coming days and weeks.
The first piece of big news is that the game has reached 25 million players in its first week. There were also 2 million simultaneous players on the weekend and put it in league with PUBG and Fortnite. In its update, Zampella also mentions Apex Legends' first big tournament, Twitch Rivals, starting Tuesday, February 12.
Zampella also announced the game's first holiday event, one in game Valentine's Day celebration. The event gives players the chance to earn special Valentine's Day themed plows. Zampella did not go into many details of the event, but said that we will soon learn more about it.
The next big one Apex Legends content launch is expected in March when the game's first match is released.
Update: The original headline of this story mistakenly said that Valentine's Day event would take place next week. It will take place "later this week" according to Zampella's speech.
