Apex Legends has always focused on being a team game, with the core mode being Trios.

SOLO: Sometimes players just want to play on their own

This new feature allows players to queue on their own rather than with teammates, this can be especially handy if players don't like speaking to other players, or don't own a microphone.

The downside, you still have to queue in Apex Legends' team-based modes, which will naturally put most players at a disadvantage.

There will only be up to six solo players in any lobby, meaning the game won't turn into a solo game and is still intended to be team-based.
