The newest season of Apex Legends debuted this week with Defiance, introducing the new sabotaged Olympus map, a new Legend in Mad Maggie and the 9v9 limited time mode Control. Perhaps due to the hype surrounding it, Steam player numbers have hit a staggering new high. According to SteamDb, the battle royale shooter has a new all-time peak concurrent player total of 392,998.

Along with all of the new content, the increased player count could also be attributed to the third year anniversary celebration. Respawn Entertainment is doling out free characters and themed packs each week until March 1st. Octane is currently available this week with Wattson being free to claim on February 15th to 22nd and Valkyrie available on February 22nd to March 1st.

Apex Legends is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch. The Xbox Series X/S and PS5 versions could be releasing soon based on recent ratings in Taiwan and Europe so stay tuned.
