EA Play Live has been dropping information left and right tonight, and some of it may start to change the landscape of digital distribution as we start to see the partnership between EA and Steam (Valve) that was announced about a week ago start to pay off in spades. In addition to a number of buy-to-play titles from EA's teams being made available on Steam, we're seeing free-to-play titles jump the gap, too.
Predictably, one of the first free-to-play titles that EA will make available on Steam will be its battle royale Apex Legends. The surprise hit shooter will make its way onto Valve's platform later this fall and will have a release on the Switch in that same time frame. Apex Legends players will be happy to know that the move is coming with full cross play functionality across all existing and new platforms.
Apex Legends just released information about the upcoming Season 5 content and if you are planning to jump into the game again and need a refresher on the new season, including the new mobile respawn beacons, head on over and read our recap of everything you can expect later this month in Season 5.
