Respawn Entertainment, the developer behind the popular free-to-play battle royale game, Apex Legends, has delighted its community with an exciting announcement. As of the 31st of October, Apex Legends players will be able to enjoy a cross-platform progression feature. This eagerly awaited update coincides with the game's 19th season and the unveiling of the newest Legend known as Conduit.
The introduction of the cross-progression update means players will no longer be bound by platform restrictions when it comes to their account progression. All existing items, cosmetics, and achievements will be consolidated into a single account accessible across multiple gaming platforms, removing the need for players to maintain separate accounts.
From the details provided in the game developer's official blog, players will be gradually transitioned into this new system over a certain period. This phased approach is intended to ensure a stable and seamless transition into the new feature, with minimum disruption to gameplay experience. Players should be on the lookout for an in-game prompt that will initiate this account migration process. Importantly, the Cross Progression data will be associated with the player's Electronic Arts (EA) account.
However, there are a few things players should be aware of with this new update. Due to the complexities involved in merging accounts across different platforms, certain aspects of Apex Legends – for example, Apex Coins, Crafting Materials, and such – may be affected in diverse ways. It is also noteworthy that the players' unlocked Legends and inventory will remain uniform across all platforms, with the exception of platform exclusives.
For those seeking an in-depth understanding of this new feature and how it works, they can visit EA's official website. There, they can find more comprehensive information about the planned cross-progression feature, as well as other updates regarding the game.
This news has sparked a wave of excitement amongst the players. They are eagerly anticipating the end of the month, when they can finally take full advantage of this new feature. It marks a significant step forward in the evolution of Apex Legends, breaking down platform barriers and enhancing the overall gaming experience for its dedicated player base. The introduction of cross-platform progression further establishes the game's reputation as a trailblazer in the battle royale genre. It's a clear demonstration of Respawn Entertainment's commitment to innovation and improving player experience in Apex Legends.
