Apex Legends vs. Fortnite: Epic Games uses the cunning tactic
Apex Legends vs. Fortnite: Epic Games uses the cunning tactic ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!
An interesting article was published on the Titanfall blog (on Twitter and Dexerto website) yesterday. It argues that “Epic Games have turned to a peculiar tactic to fight against Apex Legends' explosive first-week growth, as the Respawn Entertainment title aims to topple Fortnite.”
This conclusion was made from advertising in a Google search resource, where the author of the article after searching for the results of “Apex Legends” was carefully suggested the Fortnite game. Apex Legends triumphantly broke the Fortnite record with 10 million unique players on February 7. In turn, the brainchild of Epic Games has reached such numbers only two weeks after the release.
We couldn’t check the accuracy of the Dexerto blog author’s statement, because our Google is an obedient boy and gives only direct results of the requests. Just the screen remains from the original material.
Users in the comments under the tweet caustically suggest that the Fortnite team is merely afraid of losing its audience and is looking for any ways to prevent a decline in the game’s interest.
However, in our opinion (it is also shared by well-known streamers, who have spent more than one month in the game) so far the creation of Respawn Entertainment will have to contend with Fortnite. Not so long ago, the game gathered 10 million players at only one DJ Marshmello online concert. It is difficult to imagine such a scale from the creators of Titanfall in their new game. Here is what famous streamer Ninja said about the competition between titles during one of its streams on February 8.
"I mean anything any game has a chance to go over Fortnite, but it's going to be nearly impossible. But this game specifically? It's anyone's guess at this point. I think it's going to be nearly impossible for anyone to do what Fortnite has done, and what they continue to do day in and day out and update their game."
Twitter account, which publishes all the latest Apex’s news has already collected 100 thousand subscribers, and their number continues to grow (at the time of writing, the total number of subscribers is 113 thousand). And this means one thing: interest in Apex Legends is still fresh and hot, like the game itself.
Do you think Apex Legends is a competitor to Fortnite? Did you play the Respawn's novelty yourself?
