'Apex Legends' came out of nowhere and has taken over the battle royale genre with much steam. On its very first day, 'Apex Legends' managed to draw 2.5 million players and has since then garnered over 50 million players recently. © Electronic Arts When 'Apex Legends' was launched, there was no marketing or promotions involved and instead, Electronic Arts invited a few streamers to play the game. One of the sponsored streamers was Ninja and apparently, he was paid $1 million to play for a few hours on launch day, according to Reuters. That's Rs 6.9 crores if you convert it into our local currency. Of course, the partnership was no secret as his stream was labelled as "Apex Legends partner”. A representative from Electronic Arts confirmed to Kotaku that the company did have a marketing campaign in place with content creators at the launch of the game. Getting paid $1 million for two hours of work is a big payday even for Ninja when taking his earnings into consideration. It has been reported earlier that Ninja was paid $600,000 to take part in a single event last year. © YouTube EA's gamble to pay off streamers for promotions seems to have paid off as Apex Legends has managed to rake in a massive number of players in just a month. Apex Legends is a free-to-play game on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game is all set to receive a new update that will introduce its own battle pass for players to earn cosmetic items and in-game rewards. Source: Reuters
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsNinja, the prolific games streamer whose real name is Tyler Belvins, has been ruling the internet with streaming games online. Ninja was already a competitive Halo player for the year; however, he achieved new found success after streaming Fortnite with rapper Drake in 2018. © YouTube The success has obviously paid off and he told CNN in an interview that he made nearly $10 million (Almost Rs 70 Crore) in 2018. He told CNN in an interview that 70 percent of his earnings came from Twitch and YouTube via ads and subscriptions. 30 percent of his income came from sponsorship deals with companies like Samsung, Red Bull and Uber Eats. Let's not forget that Ninja's $10 million earning is probably before tax. However, it's still a lot of money for a streamer to make in 2018. Earlier in 2018, Ninja reported that he was making around $500,000 every month from various sources. © YouTube In the interview, Ninja mentioned that he spends around 12 hours each day streaming, and in 2018, he estimated he played over 4,000 hours of Fortnite. Ninja has also seen success in other areas such as a cover star of ESPN magazine and also made an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's late night show. Fortnite and other Battle Royale games have been taking over the world for the past two years and it doesn't seem like the game will lose steam anytime soon. Ninja believes Forntite still has a lot of room to grow and will continue to stream the game. Ninja has also expanded to his own clothing line which he sells via his website and streams.
