I’m so overwhelmed right now, [@PlayApex](https://twitter.com/PlayApex) broke a million unique players in under 8 hours. ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you so much for showing up and being part of this with @Respawn you are amazing!!

Not to discount the incredible numbers the game has pulled in but, considering the list of streamers Respawn partnered with and the fact that the game is made by a studio of people that have been releasing blockbuster AAA games for the better part of 15 years, the news isn’t super surprising.

Having played a couple hours of the game last night, I’m impressed with what I’ve seen. The game is a ton of fun, the launch has been smooth and bug-free, and there’s a passionate fanbase that’s quickly forming around it.
