Respawn, the developer behind Titanfall and Titanfall 2, surprised fans by announcing and releasing a new battle royale game, titled Apex Legends, on the same day. Although the game doesn’t support cross-platform play, Respawn has hinted that may not always remain the case.

On the Apex Legends FAQ page, Respawn writes, “We currently don’t support cross-platform play, but are always working on new features and improvements we can add to our game.” So cross-play could come to the Titanfall-themed battle royale game in the future. Given Sony’s decision to reverse its stance on cross-play with Nintendo and Microsoft, Apex could feature cross-platform support across Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

If Apex were to go through EA’s launcher, much like Fortnite–and soon Dauntless–goes through Epic’s, then the battle royale game might be able to support cross-progression one day as well. It wouldn’t be the first time, Apex borrows an idea from the popular battle royale title, as Respawn’s game utilizes a Fortnite-style Battle Pass. Although Apex launches on Origin for PC, currently your game account isn’t tied to your EA one when playing on Xbox One and PS4.

Apex Legends has some pretty minor PC system requirements. With it also being free-to-play, you can pretty easily jump into the game’s 1 million player community on a laptop or low-end PC. We’ve outlined the full requirements below.
