Apex Legends Gets Cross-Play – And Pay Attention To Fairness


Apex Legends Gets Cross-Play - And Pay Attention To Fairness

Crossplay for game battle royal in which you have only one life? “Apex Legends” makes it possible starting October 6. Players can then meet as a team or compete against each other regardless of their platform.


Anyone who likes to play online multiplayer knows the dilemma: in fact, you would like to play with your best friend, but he plays on his PC, you on PlayStation. Developer Respawn Entertainment fixes your issue in “Apex Legends” with a small update next Tuesday: On October 6, Battle Royale crossplay kicks off – and is directly activated, as EA announced in a blog post.

Then the brave first players from different platforms can meet and fight against other teams. If you don’t want to, you can also turn off crossplay in your settings.

PC versus console? Only if you really want it

Before you sweat it out, because as a gamer with a controller you don’t see a chance against PC gamers with mouse and keyboard – console gamers and PC gamers are basically separate from each other. Unless they’re part of a working group from the start. A separate lobby is then created for this combination and appropriate matchmaking is performed. So only those who really want to play against PC gamers.

Respawn Entertainment and publisher EA have tried to keep the crossplay as fair as possible and to ensure the same conditions on different platforms. So no one has to worry about suddenly finding themselves in the multiplayer shooter game with no chance of winning.
