Apex Legends is a popular game with a solid player base. If there has been one persistent complaint from the fans, it has been the lack of crossplay. It seems like the woes of the players are about to come to an end. The game is set to get cross-platform play between PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
The crossplay is coming as a part of a new event named “Aftermarket Collection”, and seems to be coming with strings attached:
- Before cross-play, each platform would only play with and against other users on the same platform. Now, all console players will play together, and PC players will continue to play only with other PC players. We want to ensure that keyboard and mouse PC players are not being matched against console players, for reasons that should be obvious.
- If, however, an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 player and PC player party up together, they will be put into PC matches. This ensures that the console games don’t have PC players in them, but still allows for the console player to play with their PC friend if they opt-in.
Here’s the trailer for the event:
It looks like there will not be cross-progression, and the pool of dedicated games will still stay. The Aftermarket Collection Event and cross-play arrive on October 6. Excited? Tell us in the comments, down below!
