Electronic Arts has released a new gameplay trailer showcasing their free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends running on Nintendo Switch.
Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Apex Legends was released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in February 2019 and will now come to the portable home console thanks to porting powerhouse Panic Button – known for their work to bring games such as Rocket League, DOOM, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and DOOM Eternal.
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.
The game comes to Nintendo Switch with support for cross-platform play, the latest seasonal content, and “full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”
Apex Legends will release as a free download on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 9th March 2021.
