"Apex Legends" is an up and coming battle royale video game. It was released on February 4, 2019, and it has attracted over 10 million players in its first three days. In addition, the video game has had a lot of concurrent players, and it appears that it will be a serious competitor to "Fortnite Battle Royale." While "Fortnite" is still king of battle royale games, "Apex Legends" is on a good way to become extremely popular and break some of its main competitor's records.

Respawn Entertainment, the company behind the new battle royale video game, has done a great job with the game in its first week. According to the development team, there are big plans for the future of "Apex Legends," and players will get many new features. One of these is going to be another map, and the Respawn Entertainment CEO said that it could be even bigger than the current map.

More maps

While "Apex Legends" has gained incredible popularity in its first week, Respawn Entertainment will have to do a great job to keep the game alive and updated with new content.

At the end of the day, this is what the success of the game will depend on, and considering that its start was amazing, we can expect some big things to come.

One thing that many battle royale fans want is new maps. "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," which is another popular battle royale video game, has received a few new maps since its release in March 2017. On the other side, Epic Games has decided to stick to only one "Fortnite Battle Royale" map since September 2017.

The development team has decided to keep making big changes to the map every season, or more often, instead of releasing a completely new map.

According to Respawn CEO Vince Zampella, "Apex Legends" will get a new map. At the moment, players only have one playable map, Kings Canyon, but this could change very soon. Zampella talked about the upcoming plans for the popular video game, revealing new things that will be added at some point. “There will be new maps, new modes, new characters, new weapons, new skins. There will be a ton of stuff coming over the next year to 10, maybe.

It depends on how successful it is.”

More players

Right now, there are 60 players in one match of "Apex Legends." However, this is something that could be increased as the Respawn CEO talked about bigger maps in the future. “We’ll probably release other maps that are bigger if we decide they’re fun,” Zampella said.
