Season 8 of Apex Legends has seen a boost in the two-year-old battle royale’s player population. In February it enjoyed roughly 70,000 more concurrent players on Steam than the month before. As February draws to a close, SteamDB recorded it having a record-breaking peak player count of 198,235.
That’s five days after the two-year anniversary collection event ended too.
