Apex Legends Next-Gen Update Coming Tomorrow

Apex legends fans have been waiting for an update bringing native PS5 and Xbox Series X|S version for quite a while, and that wait is finally ending.

Apex legends fans have been waiting for an update bringing native PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions for quite a while, and that wait is finally ending.

Tomorrow (March 29), alongside the Warriors Collection Event, Respawn and Electronic Arts are also releasing the next-gen (or perhaps we should say “current-gen” at this point?) update.

It’ll include the following.

Improvements over back-compat versions:

4K output          PS5 & Xbox Series X
Full 60hz gameplay          PS5 & Xbox Series X|S
HDR          PS5 & Xbox Series X|S
Higher resolution shadow maps          PS5 & Xbox Series X
Greater LOD distances           PS5 & Xbox Series X

Even more goodies are coming in future updates:

120hz gameplay          PS5 & Xbox Series X|S
Adaptive triggers          PS5
Haptics          PS5
Visual Improvements          PS5 & Xbox Series X|S
Audio Improvements           PS5 & Xbox Series X|S

While players on Xbox Series X|S won’t need to do anything specific to get the upgrade, as Apex Legends supports Smart Delivery, PS5 users will need to go through a few steps, as seen below.

For PS5 Owners who already have Apex Legends installed:

  1. Navigate to the Game Hub for Apex Legends on the PS5 dashboard.
  2. Press the “Options” button next to “Play Game” (represented by “…” inside the Game Hub).
  3. Press “Select Version” and choose the PS5 version to download the updated next-gen version.
  4. Once the download is complete, navigate to the Game Library to delete the PS4 version.

For PS5 Owners who do not currently have Apex Legends installed:

  1. Navigate to the “Your Collection” tab of the Game Library on the PS5 dashboard.
  2. Find Apex Legends in your list of games and select it.
  3. When prompted, choose the PS5 version to download the updated next-gen version.
