Apex Legends Season 8: No Fill Option Coming After Launch

share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Apex Legends has always been designed to be a team-based game, rather than a solo experience.

But that doesn't stop players from wanting to just kick back on their own and play the game.

With the launch of Season 8 players will now be able to do that.


No Fill Coming

In the past, there have been Solo LTMs, but this mode was never made permeant.

The game only has permanent team-based modes, such as Duos, Trios, and Squads.

But sometimes players just want to play on their own, not having to worry about communicating with teammates, so Solos can are a great option.

ONE VS ALL: Soon players will be able to No Fill in Apex Legends.

Respawn Entertainment has said in the past that the characters in the game have been designed to work as part of a team, which does make sense as each one has different abilities that complement other characters.


In Season 8 we can expect a permanent solution to wanting to play solo with a No Fill option.

No Fill will mean that players won't get paired up with other gamers when they join a match.

There is one slight disadvantage though, you might be solo but the rest of the lobby won't be.

This means that fights will either be 1v2, 1v3, or 1v4 depending on which mode is selected.

But, for those who want to play on their own, its a small sacrifice, it will also help make you a better player as you have to learn to tackle multiple opponents at once.

Back in November 2020 during as Reddit AMA, Apex Design Director Jason McCord confirmed it was being tested and worked and that it would be coming in Season 8.

However, it won't be available at launch, and will instead be implemented later on.


Nintendo Switch Port

When Apex Legends came to Steam last year, it was also due to launch on the Nintendo Switch at the same time.


However, that version was delayed as they worked to improve performance and quality.

It is now due to be released on February 2nd alongside Season 8.

This is a perfect time for new players to jump in and check out the game for the first time.

The Switch has its fair share of f2p games, including Fortnite, Warface, and Warframe, and it will be interesting to see how Apex Legends performs from a visual and framerate perspective when it releases next week.
