Apex Legends Switch Gameplay Debuts During Nintendo's February Direct

The game seems to plays in a lower resolution in comparison to Xbox, PlayStation, and PC but everything looks to run fine.


We got our first look at how Apex Legends plays on Switch during Nintendo's February Direct. You can check out Apex Legends' Switch gameplay in the trailer embedded below. Apex Legends releases for Switch on March 9.

Also in the trailer, Nintendo announces that the Switch version of Apex Legends will come with a brand-new, never-before-seen legendary skin for Pathfinder. The trailer doesn't show off what the skin looks like though.

Now Playing: Apex Legends Switch Overview Trailer | Nintendo Direct

Given that it's coming out weeks after the start of Season 8: Mayhem, the Switch version of the game will set you up with a 33-level head start on the battle pass for free. This is around where most players on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC will be in mid-March, so you won't be left behind if you start playing on Switch.

Additionally, players on Switch will earn double experience for the first two weeks following Apex Legends' launch on Nintendo's console, making it easier to level up in the battle pass.
