Electronic Arts has announced that free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends is coming to Nintendo Switch this Fall.

Developed by Respawn Entertainment, it was released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in February 2019 and will now come to the portable home console.

Pitched as “a character-driven, squad-based Battle Royale shooter where teamwork is the difference between victory and defeat,” you will first choose your character from a lineup of outlaws, soldiers, misfits and misanthropes before being challenged to survive long enough to be called a Legend.

You will need to master your Legend’s abilities and work as a team to succeed in competitive 60-player matches, relying on Respawn Beacons to resurrect your teammates and Smart Comms to communicate with one another without the need for voice chat.

Apex Legends will release as a free download on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Fall 2020.
