It looks as though the developers have been working on that, mulling over the idea of Solo and Duo modes that allow players to play alone or partner with one other person.

Electronic Arts Inc. rose to the highest in almost four months as some Wall Street analysts weighed in favorably on the the potential success of the company's latest game, Apex Legends. While the player count is nothing short of impressive, there are also plans of introducing a mobile version of the hit game in the foreseeable future.

Apex Legends is only a week old, though you wouldn't know it considering it has scored 25,000,000 unique player accounts and over 2,000,000 players have been online concurrently, both numbers setting new records. While it's likely that the developer is now working on new game modes to add to the roster, it could similarly be possible that these game modes were considered and subsequently scrapped.

"It was a fierce competition and I'm beyond thrilled that you chose me to represent Australia at Eurovision 2019 ". I did not expect it to go my way". "It's an enormous honour and a responsibility - and I don't take it lightly".

In games like Overwatch and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, players take on the role of specific characters who each have their own personalities, voices, backstories, and abilities. A huge missed opportunity for COD: Blackout, not for Apex.

The massively successful first week is due in large part to a plethora of Twitch's most high-profile streamers spending large amounts of time airing the game. There's nothing truly groundbreaking here, but it's the vast amount of little things that Apex does extremely well that makes it stand out from the rest. From being free-to-play to its smooth, varied, and stunning gameplay, it's hard to play anything else right now. Its marketing no doubt helped, as the combination of a surprise launch and support from top streamers (such as Shroud and Dr DisRespect) made sure that everyone could see how well the game played. (Epic didn't immediately respond to a request for updated figures.) Those millions of players have turned Fortnite into a cultural phenomenon, played by celebrities, musicians and sports stars.
