Apex Legends doesn't require PS Plus on PS4

If you've spent any amount of time in battle royale games like Fortnite, then you've probably grown quite accustomed to the world of third person shooters.

The game is now available to play through Origin on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

"Our goal in every game you play is that you come in with a plan but you leave with a story", Drew McCoy, lead producer of Apex Legends, said in a press release. The game is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. An intuitive Ping system is also available in Apex Legends, as players will be able to simply communicate where enemies, weapons and ammo are located to fellow teammates.

In Apex Legends there are no duos or solos mode now being offered.


Respawn invested a lot into the launch of Apex Legends, partnering with top content creators on Twitch to stream the game and increase its visibility on its first day. Going free-to-play wasn't enough, though, and EA and Sony made the game even more accessible by removing the PS Plus barrier for Sony's 90 million strong install base. Some reports state that development on Titanfall 3 shifted into what became Apex Legends. These characters have special abilities which increase over time. In response to this possible distrust, the team at Respawn have given players a detailed explanation of how microtransactions will be utilized in Apex Legends. The latest entry to the battle royale genre comes from Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts (EA) and is free to download and play.

Respawn is hopeful that this will be the first year of many. These Coins are purchased with real money but the game's other currencies (Legend Tokens and Crafting Materials) are both earned through gameplay and Apex Packs respectively.
