He then mentioned how Shadie was their best friend and by adding a little shrine dedicated to her, this beloved family member could live on - even just in a corner of the battle royale game. When a story broke about an Apex Legends player finding a "dog shrine", one developer made a decision to share the heartbreaking story behind it.

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. Showing Respawn's pedigree as a team of creatives who clearly game regularly themselves, we've got shakeups to the battle royale formula like respawns and finishers, right next to Titanfall-aping gunplay and knee slides keeping locomotion fresh. 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.

We hoped you'd love it as much as us, but never in our wildest dreams could we have expected the outpouring of support and positivity we've seen.

Apex Legends is what you'd get if you smashed Fortnite and Overwatch together and cooked them in a Titanfall pot.

EA and Respawn have confirmed two playable characters in their new free-to-play battle royale game, Apex Legends, are members of the LGBTQ community. Also, this is just the beginning as the developer has promised that there's a lot more to come this year. "We'll be exploring rotating or staggered tournament schedules in the future to include more players".

There is a lot of hype surrounding the launch of Apex Legends and rightfully so.

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