Apex Legends Coming to Nintendo Switch in March

Apex Legends’ new season 8 character Fuse is designed for new players

Apex Legends Coming to Nintendo Switch in March; New Players Receive Free Battle Pass Levels

The price of Apex Legends on the new platform has not been announced yet. Bringing with it a new Legend, a new weapon, and major map changes for King's Canyon, Season 8 also includes some less obvious but just as significant meta updates, such as hitbox alterations for Wraith. However, considering Season 8 starts on February 2 and the Switch version isn't out until March 9, EA is giving Switch users 30 free Season 8 Battle Pass levels. Oh, and there'll be double XP for all Switch players at launch.

The Switch version will have cross-platform play and "full feature parity" with other versions of the game.

Grenier also shared that Switch players will get 30 free levels for their season eight battle pass. And as it is elsewhere, the game will be free-to-play on Switch, with a premium "Champion Edition" available that bundles now available characters, weapons, and maps. Respawn Entertainment believes that Apex Legends season 8 is a superb time to affix, and the studio designed the season's new character, Fuse, with that concept in thoughts.

It's not ready for the Season 8 launch, but Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch has a release date and it's not far away.

Thankfully, the dev team did come through with the implementation of crossplay, which is a feature that'll be available from day one for Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch. But when is the free-to-play behemoth expected to arrive on the leading handheld console in the world? But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
