Apex Legends, the smash hit Battle Royale from Respawn Entertainment, will celebrate its fourth anniversary soon – and the EA subsidiary is going big. In addition to a new season of content – featuring a fresh character, Mad Maggie – the studio will also be giving away Legends for free to those who login on a weekly basis, in an attempt to stoke engagement.
But that’s not all: word of a PlayStation 5 version has been swirling for some time, dating all the way back to some employment posts a couple of years ago, and more recently, a listing on Sony’s servers. According to the developer, speaking as part of a media presentation watched by Eurogamer.net, news on the native version will emerge “very, very shortly”.
While the studio stopped short of sharing any further details, it added that this port will add a “bunch of new features”, in addition to the expected improvements, like higher resolution visuals. The likes of Fortnite and Destiny 2 already have PS5 editions, so it was inevitable that Apex Legends would follow. Now we just need the all-important release date.
