In an interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun, Respawn Community Manager Jay Frechette also confirmed "Technological Tracker" Bloodhound, whose real name, age, and homeworld are unknown, is either "non-binary, or at least non-specified, in terms of gender".

After Apex Legends was revealed earlier this week, it quickly went past the 1 million marker just less than eight hours after going live, Vince Zampella, Respawn's CEO, said in a tweet Tuesday.

Coupled with its smooth, streamlined gunplay, unique Overwatch-like characters, and multi-faceted mechanics including an awesome ping system, Apex Legends' free-to-play accessibility and silky FPS chaos is attracting enthusiast streamers and gamers alike.

Brian Barnett is an IGN freelance news/features/wiki guides writer. The game is free to play and is available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, which surely helped it reach a high number of players in such a short time - why not try a free game?

You'll also be able to see us using the Ping system, looting, using the map, sorting through the inventory, and killing other players as we get to a nail-biting finish. Apex Legends is their latest game, but it was more of a merry experiment really as the game initially started off as a Battle Royale mode for Titanfall. We knew it would be risky to take the franchise in this direction, to go free to play, and do a surprise launch.


With the battle royale game's success so far, it will likely be hard to find someone who is not pleased that Respawn Entertainment is the developer to have created Apex Legends.

This is just the beginning! During its first day, the game's performance exceeded expectations and drew in over a million unique players and more.

We really doubt a single player mode will be added on as the studio is apparently working on a new Titanfall title for later this year. Big Twitch streamers like Dr. Disrespect, Shroud, and Myth are set to duke it out in Respawn's new free-to-play titan.

This number nearly tripled within the day, garnering a total of over 2.5 million unique players in just 24 hours.
