Origin offline: Chat and friends list down for Apex Legends and others

Battlefield V Underperforms and EA Blames Single Player For It

Following a surprise release, Respawn Entertainment celebrated 1 million players within the first day of launching its free-to-play Titanfall battle royale.

During Electronic Arts' post-earnings conference call, CEO Andrew Wilson discussed the game's success, also saying that "t$3 he Respawn team has a strong plan for Apex Legends that will engage fans for a long time to come". The bottom one shows us in a standard game getting to grips with things on PC, but in the two above you can see us getting the win with both Bangalore and Lifeline, two very different Legends that offer their own styles of play.

And other people are most definitely playing it, but there's also a lot of fans who are watching it too on Twitch because, as of writing this article, it's now the top viewed game with 145K viewers.

Update: Something that we missed initially is that Apex also pushed past the 1 million concurrent players point. While that alone is impressive, it seems that's nothing compared to what the free-to-play battle royale title has achieved now.

Respawn, the developers of the Titanfall series, dropped Apex Legends earlier this week with no marketing and no mention, but that hasn't stopped the game from gaining popularity.

"If you're having trouble seeing your friends online or sending invites on Origin, we're looking into it, and we'll let you know when we have more info", the EA Support message reads.

Noah is reviewing Apex Legends so expect to see a review from him landing here sometime soon. We have so much more in store for you this year.

Not only did the Apex Legends player base reach 10 million players total, but the Apex Legends concurrent players number has breached over one million! Apex Legends has been designed by creators of the acclaimed Titanfall franchise and this fact alone happened to attract first-person-shooter and Titanfall lovers.
