Apex Legends Received A Version For The New Consoles

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends is now available for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series, and the Warriors Collection Event has also launched in the game.


It’s been over three years since Apex Legends launched, with the battle royale launching on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Origin in February 2019 and then hitting Valve’s digital store in November 2020 as a result of Electronic Arts’ opening towards Steam, before arriving on Nintendo Switch in March 2021. As of today, March 29, the PlayStation 5, the Xbox Series X, and the Xbox Series S can now run the game without backwards compatibility.

Electronic Arts‘ website explains how the PlayStation 5/Xbox Series version is enhanced compared to the PlayStation 4/Xbox One version and how to upgrade. It has 4K output (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X), 60-hertz gameplay (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S), HDR (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S – an HDR-capable display is required), higher resolution shadow maps (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X), and greater LOD distances (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X).

Here’s how you can upgrade: “For PlayStation 5 owners who have Apex Legends installed, navigate to the game hub for Apex Legends on the PlayStation 5 dashboard. Press the “Options” button next to “Play Game.” Press “Select Version” and choose the PlayStation 5 version to download the updated next-gen version. Once the download is complete, navigate to the game library to delete the PlayStation 4 version. For Xbox Series X|S owners: Apex Legends uses Smart Delivery on Xbox consoles. The best version of the game is automatically delivered to your console, regardless of generation—no extra steps are required from you.”

So, another game has jumped a console generation, which is expected, as Respawn and Electronic Arts are making money with it.
