Of course, they also thanked the 25 million people who have given Apex a shot. Apex Legends is taking its first real shot at monetization in March with the release of the Season One Battle Pass.

With Apex Legends' first tournament in the books, we're going to have to wait and see where it goes from here. Following its release, the game had numerous high-profile streamers play as an advertisement, but many continued playing well after their advertising slots were over.

Game publisher Electronic Arts said last week that it is looking to the releases of "Apex Legends" as well as BioWare's "Anthem" to help following a hard financial quarter. Like Fortnite, Apex Legends is free to download and is designed as a last-man-standing "battle royale" title. The stock caught fire a few days later, when the video-game maker announced the release attracted 10 million users.

Further bolstering the streaming momentum behind the game, there's also the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge, which pits European Union teams against North American squads, featuring 48 of the biggest streamers on Twitch.

On PC, one Redditor shows the Titanfall 2 multiplayer userbase sitting at around 3,500, which is more than a 200% increase from its usual average of 1000 players online. You may have something to look forward to once the initial rush is over, especially if hints of solo and duo modes prove accurate.

This could mean that an Apex Legends Mobile version could only come to countries like China. While players land with no weapons, they quickly have to loot guns, grenades, shields and other items. Even if you've played the game a bit already, how do you know which character you should choose as your main?

Apex Legends seems like it could be well on the way to breaking some major Twitch records.

Apex Legend's legs, however, will very much depend on the game's support from here on out.
