After a few months of internet chatter, Respawn Entertainment has revealed the PlayStation 5 version of Apex Legends will release today. Battle Royale players must download a patch for the PS4 edition via its Game Hub, while new users should be able to simply grab the PS5 version from the PS Store. Today's update includes a 4K resolution at 60 frames-per-second, HDR support, higher resolution shadow maps, and greater LOD distances.
However, that's not all. The developer will be patching in even more current-gen enhancements in the future. Further updates down the line will include support for 120 frames-per-second, the PS5 DualSense controller's adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, as well as more visual and audio improvements. This PS5 version is a work in progress, then.
The native PS5 version is just one part of a much larger update for Apex Legends, which brings back the 9v9 Control mode as well as map changes and a brand new one for Arena. This is all part of the Warriors Collection Event, containing 24 cosmetic items to earn. For a full list of patch notes, click the link.
