Electronic Arts has recently announced that Apex Legends will be coming to the Nintendo Switch and Steam soon. This announcement was made during the company’s EA Play Live 2020 event. Furthermore, EA has also mentioned that Apex Legends will be cross-play compatible once it’s launched on the aforementioned platforms.
Apex Legends – Nintendo Switch + Steam
Prior to this announcement, Apex Legends was only made available on PC via Origin and on major home consoles (PlayStation 4 & Xbox One) ever since its initial launch in February 2019. The move to release this game on the Nintendo Switch is an interesting prospect indeed, given how gamers will now be able to play it on the go.
That being said, EA gave no specific date as to when Apex Legends will be made available on the Nintendo Switch; it merely gave an obscure date of Fall 2020 (September onwards). Those aside, it will be interesting to see how EA will balance in-game matchmaking now that console and PC gamers will be able to play the game together.
Aside from the announcement above, EA has also announced that games such as The Sims 4, Dead Space 3, A Way Out and Titanfall 2 are also now available on Steam.
