Apex Legends has grown its player base at lightning speed since it appeared almost out of the blue in February, citing 50 million players after just over a month since release. It's not much of surprise, then, that livestreaming platform Mixer has just added it to its HypeZone, a dynamic stream that showcases the players mere moments away from achieving victory in different games, which includes the likes of Fortnite, PUBG and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

But the announcement comes with an exciting new feature: HypeZone Leaderboards -- a feature Mixer's biggest rival, Twitch, doesn't have, and which debuts with Apex Legends. This highlights the wins and kills for the top 10 players featured in HypeZone each week -- toggle the Leaderboard at any time by hitting the "MixPlay" button underneath the stream.

Not only is this a good way to discover new streamers on Mixer, but it's a useful way of surfacing strong players that might not already have a big following. If Mixer is serious about usurping Twitch as the gamer's livesteaming platform of choice, this might be one way to do it.
