Apex Legends is coming to the Nintendo Switch on March 9th. The resolution and frame rate of the game have been confirmed ahead of its launch.
Apex Legends is already available for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It hasn’t been updated for the PS5 and Xbox Series consoles. The game will be released on March 9th for the Nintendo Switch. We have now a confirmation of the resolution and frame rate of the Nintendo Switch version.
Respawn Entertainment and Panic Button were recently interviewed by Famitsu and shared the technical specifications for the Nintendo Switch version in this interview. According to Andy Boggs, the technical director of Panic Button, who has handled this port for Apex Legends, the game runs at 720p resolution in the docked mode and 576p resolution in the portable mode. Both different modes run at 30 FPS, which is half the frame rate of the PS4 and Xbox One versions.
If you are interested in grabbing the game, it is available now on the Nintendo eShop and has a file size of roughly 25 GB. To celebrate the launch of the Nintendo Switch version players will be granted 30 free levels for their Season 8 Battle Pass. For the first two weeks after launch, playing on Switch will also earn you double XP.
Respawn is also launching a Legendary Pathfinder skin (called P.A.T.H.) as a free reward for players who boot up Apex Legends on Switch between the game’s launch and the end of Season 8 – Mayhem (May 4th, 2021).
Apex Legends is available now for the PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It is a spin-off that is based on the Titanfall IP and it is free-to-play on all platforms with in-game purchases tied to the Battle Pass, cosmetics, collectibles, and other microtransactions.
