Respawn Entertainment confirms that it is bringing next-gen versions of its futuristic battle royale, Apex Legends to consoles. The update launches tomorrow, bringing in a range of new features, including native 4K output to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
The renowned FPS game will now be available in 4K resolution, its developer confirms in a recent blog, alongside highlighting the new Warriors collection event.
Apex Legends Players on PS5 or Xbox Series X now get 4k output
Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of Apex Legends have gone live alongside the Warriors Collection Event, which continues until April 12.
That means that if you play Apex Legends on PS5 or Xbox Series X, you’ll now get 4k output, full 60Hz gameplay, HDR support, higher resolution shadows, and greater draw distance. Series S will only support the 60Hz gameplay and HDR support.
The majority of the blog talks about the Warriors Collection Event, due to start on March 29. From March 29 to April 12, the game will see the return of its much-celebrated 9v9 Control mode. Other than this, Caustic Treatment will convert into a three-point battleground, along with “additional cover, ziplines, skydive launchers, and even a hover tank,” the developers mention.
New locations have been added, while new Warriors Collection event items will also go on sale on the day. There are rewards to be won and store offers to be availed for Apex Legends players during the Warriors Collection Event. The developer has even fixed several bugs with the game in the new update.
