Apex Legends is already one of Steam’s most popular games

Respawn’s free-to-play battle royale title Apex Legends has been one of the most-played games on Steam since its launch last week.

Apex Legends was finally released on Valve’s storefront on November 5 and – at the time of writing – boasts the fourth-highest concurrent players on the platform, according to Steam Charts, coming in behind Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2 and Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds.

On Sunday, November 8, Apex Legends saw its peak concurrent users to date, attracting 116,558 over the weekend and has had 79,434 users playing on average.

When Respawn announced the Steam version’s release date, the studio also revealed that the Nintendo Switch edition was no longer coming out in 2020. Earlier this year, EA said it was hoping to soft launch a mobile version of Apex Legends by the end of 2020.
