How to download Apex Legends on PC, Xbox One, PS4: System requirements and more

Albert Petrosyan

Apex Legends is the latest battle royale game that everyone is talking about and it’s now available for download on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Here’s everything you need to know if you want to play.

Developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, Apex Legends is a BR shooter where “legendary characters with powerful abilities team up to battle fame and fortune on the fringes of the Frontier.”

The game, which was announced, revealed, and released all on February 4, is completely free-to-play and can now be downloaded on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Seemingly coming out of nowhere, Apex Legends was suddenly thrust into the spotlight after plans of its development and secret release were leaked last week.

Since then, the battle royale community has been talking about the genre’s newest title all the way up and through its announcement stream, which included this cinematic reveal trailer. 

Those who want to download the game on PC must visit its official webpage on the Origin website, where they then click the orange button labeled ‘Get the Game.’

As for the two consoles, players must go to their respective system’s in-game store and type in ‘Apex Legends’ in the search bar, after which the game should appear and be available for download.

Downloading Apex Legends on PC is as easy as visiting the website and clicking “Get the Game.”

Apex Legends appears to be a rather demanding game in terms of system requirements, and EA have released the minimum and recommended spec requirements for those who want to play on the PC.
