Apex Legends Rated For PS5 and Xbox Series by PEGI and ESRB
Apex Legends has been rated for the PS5 and Xbox Series by ESRB and PEGI. This suggests an announcement is due soon.
Apex Legends has been officially announced to launch on the current-generation consoles. Among the upgrades, 120 FPS support has been mentioned while the game currently doesn’t run at native 4K at 60 FPS, that should also change with the new upgrade.
While an upgrade process hasn’t been outlined yet by Respawn Entertainment, both PEGI and ESRB have now rated the game for their respective platforms. This means the game is now ready to launch for the PS5 and Xbox Series and all we have to do is wait for an official announcement for the release date.
Brief outline of the game
Apex is cooperative shooter and battle royale-style online game. Users can form-up into small squads consisting of up to 3 players. Matches are capped at 60-players. Players on the same squad work together to defeat the other squads.
Players can use a range of modern military weapons such as pistols, sniper rifles, automatic guns, frag grenades and knives. Successful hits from a firearm will degrade the health a character over time and is indicated by some splattering of blood and a reduction in the characters health gauge. Once this reaches a critical point, they will become immobile and eventually die and respawn or are revived by a team mate. Finisher cut scenes provide the best examples of realistic looking violence, although powerful looking the effects are not classed as very strong violence.
Apex Legends is already available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
