Apex Legends crossplay won’t include PC crossplay automatically, because it will only activate if there is a PC player on their team.
That’s what engineer Jake Smullin wrote on TikTok, to allay worries about PC players taking over the game with higher frame rates and the accuracy of a mouse and keyboard. “Wanted to clear something up about Apex Legends cross-play,” said Smullin. “You will only be in PC crossplay lobbies if you have a PC player on your team. Have been seeing lots of console players worrying about this, but don’t. Everyone should be excited. So no more ‘not crossplay, PC is gonna dominate us’.”
Respawn Entertainment announced that crossplay will roll out in late 2020, letting PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, Origin, and Steam players compete together in the Apex Games. The Switch and Steam versions will launch at the same time, as well as a mobile version in the future. Electronic Arts has praised Apex Legends time and time again, and the “powerful” game has “so much opportunity there.”
Apex Legends is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
