Apex Legends Coming to the Nintendo Switch and Steam This Fall

by Andrew Smith

Revealed during the EA Play June livestream, it was officially announced that Apex Legends is coming to the Nintendo Switch and Steam this fall. Further, Apex Legends will support complete crossplay between all of its platforms by the end of the year.  Currently, Apex Legends is only available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and EA Origins. 

Apex Legends is currently in the middle of its fifth season, which began in May. During the EA Play livestream, developers shared that Season 5 was the “biggest and best start” to a season ever. Further, developers announced a new event, Lost Treasures which is set to begin on June 23 and will run through July 7. You can check out the official trailer for the Lost Treasures event in the video below.

There are still a lot of unknowns about the new Apex Legends Lost Treasures event, but we do know that the Armed and Dangerous mode will be returning and that there will be a new item that allows players to respawn their teammates on the go. Further, it seems there will be some type of new story that has to do with Crypto.

Respawn also revealed that a brand new prize track would be released alongside the Lost Treasures event this June. Players will be able to earn up to 1,000 points per challenge set each day in exchange for a handful of different rewards. There will also be a new Town Takeover dubbed Crypto’s Map Room, but developers did not reveal much else about it outside of its name, so we will have to wait and see what that’s all about.

Apex Legends Season 5 saw the addition of a new hero named Loba. She comes equipped with a Tactical skill called Burglar’s Best Friend which allows her to teleport across the map and a Passive skill called Eye for Quality which lets her see close by Epic and Legendary items, even through walls. Lastly, her Ultimate ability is called Black Market Boutique and allows Loba to teleport to nearby loot. Season 5 also saw the addition of new PvE quests that will allow players to collect Ghost artifacts to help Loba get revenge on the people who murdered her father. At the time of writing, we do not know the end date for Season 5.
