Now we have an official release date for Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch directly from Respawn Entertainment.
Switch Release Update
Respawn have officially announced the release date for Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch!
It will launch on Tuesday, March 9th.
On February 2nd, Apex Legends Season 8 will be launching, bringing a new Legend, new weapons, and a whole bunch of changes to the game.
In the Stories from the Outlands trailer we get to meet the newest Legend to the game, Fuse.
A new Lever Action Rifle, called the 30-30 Repeater, will be coming to the game in Season 8.
“Salvo’s most popular weapon, this lever-action rifle picks apart the opposition with hard-hitting rounds”.
While most competitive players are used to playing on anything from 60-360fps, the Nintendo Switch version of Apex Legends will likely see the game reduced down to just 30fps.
The Nintendo Switch is a fairly weak console, even by last gen's standards.
Other competitive games, such as Fortnite and Warface, only run at 30fps on the Nintendo Switch, meaning that Apex Legends will likely get the same treatment.
With so many fast paced and competitive games now on the Nintendo Switch, it does show that we need the rumoured Switch Pro more than ever, especially with the hardware gap growing even larger with the additions of the recently released PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
