Apex Legends Earns Over $92 Million In Its First Month

It should be no surprise that Apex Legends is one of the most successful games of 2019 by far but some recent numbers put the game's success in an interesting context.

Research firm SuperData reports the game has raked in over $92 in its first month, with most of the spending coming from its console users. This makes it the most successful launch month of any free-to-play game in history, according to the firm. Considering the game hit 50 million players in a quarter of the time it took Fortnite to reach that number, the number is large, but not necessarily too surprising.

SuperData's report also puts those numbers into context, pitting it against the modern giants in terms of gross revenue earned. Its exemplary month places at the sixth highest-grossing on PC, and the fourth-highest on console. On PC Dungeon Fighter Online, League of Legends, and Fortnite are still ahead of it, but it has managed to outpace World of Tanks and Dota 2.

Hellboy Is Coming To Brawlhalla, Just In Time For The Movie Premiere

Things are about to heat up in Brawlhalla, the free-to-play platform fighting game. Developer Blue Mammoth Games revealed on Twitter today that Hellboy will come to the game in April.

It's unclear from the Tweet if Hellboy's inclusion will take the form of a completely new character, like the recent addition of Thor, of if he'll be a re-skin for an existing character – like when Shovel Knight came to the game.

Big Red will make his debut right around the time the new Hellboy movie hits theaters on April 12.

Microsoft To Showcase Indie Titles Coming To Game Pass In Upcoming Stream

Microsoft To Showcase Indie Titles Coming To Game Pass In Upcoming Stream

Next week on March 26 at 9 AM PDT, Microsoft is hosting a livestream titled ID@Xbox Game Pass where it will announce several new indie titles that will then be making their way to Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft's subscription based game service. Microsoft regularly highlights the large new releases coming to the service, but the stable of smaller indie titles is constantly growing, so this gives the company a chance to put the focus on the other half of the catalog.

We already know that previously announced games, Afterparty, Void Bastards, and Supermarket Shriek will make appearances in addition to all new game announcements.

This news comes hot on the heels of Sony announcing plans to have its new State of Play stream the day before on March 25. That will seemingly focus on more wide-ranging announcements for games across the PS4 and PSVR while Microsoft's stream will more narrowly focus on its Game Pass program. In either case, we should have plenty of game announcements to tide us over in the months leading up to E3.
