The battle of supremacy in the domain of battle royale games might soon cease to be a two-sided affair between Fortnite and PUBG, thanks to EA's latest offering - Apex Legends. Incolas points out that battle royale streamer Ninja, who's been broadcasting the game since its release, wasn't even streaming yesterday.
Apex Legends has been available for just over a week, and already the community has discovered an Easter egg that Respawn thought would take much longer.
"Despite having over 600,000 less total hours streamed than Fortnite in the past seven days, Apex Legends incredibly has had nearly 11 million more total hours watched", notes Dexerto. What we do know is that Season One of the game will begin next month, and that will be introducing a Battle Pass, new Legends, more weapons, and new loot.
EA's new battle royale shooter Apex Legends has reached 25 million total players since its debut last week. There's many more reasons why it could be the next Fortnite that just those, so enjoy the video and don't forget to subscribe to CBR for more Fortnite content.

Spring training is all about new faces meshing with organizational veterans and that is particularly true in minor-league camp. He will reportedly repay $1.29m (£1m) of the $1.5m (£1.17m) he received a year ago and forfeit the remaining $3.16m (£2.46m).
Which, some have speculated, comes as a direct result of the game's initial success. That means Fortnite (which has pretty much been at the top of the gameplay chart for each platform since early a year ago, only dropping occasionally) is now facing some serious competition from Apex Legends. Players had those four hours to come away with as many wins and kills as possible, with the highest number coming away with the win.
Apex Legends continues to grow. There's nothing truly groundbreaking here, but it's the vast amount of little things that Apex does extremely well that makes it stand out from the rest. Over on ResetEra, member Nefer has noticed the uptick in players, and have made a post comparing the Titanfall 2 player count before and after Apex Legends' release. Many have hoped that the developers will add the ability for smaller teams and solo play too.
And Apex Legends appears to be growing fast.
