Electronic Arts' new game challenges Fortnite

A new opponent is challenging Fortnite which has dominated the online gaming arena It's called Apex Legends - launched by Respawn - a unit under gaming giant Electronic Arts.

EA's stock surged 20 percent late last week after the company said it racked up over 10 million players in the first days of the game's debut - By Monday that number reached 25 million.

Similar to Fortnite, players are dropped onto an island, but as a team of three, and in this game you can resuscitate your dead teammate a feature not available in Fortnite The game's channel was the most viewed on live-streaming network Twitch on Monday, with about twice as many viewers as Fortnite.

But Fortnite, which took the gaming world by storm last year- still has over 39 million followers on its Twitch channel while Apex Legends was still shy of a million.

Fortnite's success, especially with tweens and teenagers, caused headaches for parents across the country dealing with unauthorized credit card spending on the game as well as limiting digital time for their children.

Owned by Epic Games- Fortnite raked in $2.4 billion dollars in revenue last year, according to gaming research firm SuperData which said it was the biggest annual revenue of any game in history.

Videogame review website Eurogamer said Fortnite took about two weeks to hit the 10-million player mark.

It's not yet clear how Apex Legends initial surge will play out, but analysts and parents will be watching closely.
