According to Metacritic, Apex Legends received generally favorable reviews upon its release, experiencing rapid growth, with 50 million players reported in the first month, which is a mind-boggling number for any game. Many publications declared it one of the best battle royale games so far and a worthy competitor for Fortnite.
EA also declared ”Apex Legends is easily the fastest-growing franchise we’ve ever had.” The game enjoyed success all around the world, with few exceptions. Tencent is working with EA Games to find a way to bring Apex Legends to China, while also respecting the governmentally imposed requirements.
