Approximately 24 hours removed from the launch of its 13th season, Apex Legends broke its personal all-time highest concurrent player count record on Steam.

After initially being released on PlayStation, Xbox and PC (via Origin) on Feb. 4, 2019, and coming to Steam on Nov. 4, 2020, Apex Legends continues to climb the ranks as one of the most popular titles of all time.

On May 11, according to SteamDB, Apex Legends obliterated its previous all-time peak of 393,116 players, set Feb. 17, with a new peak of 412,556 players approximately 24 hours after the start of Season 13.

This is the 14th all-time highest concurrent player count charted on Steam.

Ultimately, this is perhaps no surprise considering that the title has periodically broken its Steam player count records over the past couple of years, usually at the start of its new seasons.

Season 13 of Apex Legends, titled Saviors, launched on May 10. The new season brought with it a new Legend named Newcastle, a wide range of weapon, armor and loot changes, a Storm Point map update and a reworked "Ranked Reloaded" system.

According to Electronic Arts' latest earnings report, Apex Legends has earned more than $2 billion in revenue since its launch in February 2019.

On Tuesday, May 17, Apex Legends Mobile is set to release for Android and iOS devices.
