Apex Legends, the action-packed battle royale that garnered a lot of momentum upon release, is now available on the Nintendo Switch for free. The game supports cross-play so you will be able to play with your friends who have it on other platforms.
How well does Apex Legends run on the Switch? The game will run at 720p when it is docked but at 576p in handheld mode. It will have a frame rate of 30FPS when docked and in handheld. This seems to be the standard for games coming to the Switch from third-party publishers.
The battle royale comes with a roster of legendary characters that you can choose from. Each character has a unique personality and comes with an interesting ability. Like Fortnite, you will start the game by jumping from a plane and looting before engaging your opponents.
Finally, the game does support gyro controls so this will help Switch players compete with gamers from other platforms. The game supports up to 60 players and is 25 GB in size so make sure you have enough space on your device. You can watch the Switch gameplay trailer for Apex Legends below.
