Apex Legends could get a PS5 and Xbox Series upgrade soon

In a Reddit AMA last year, Respawn said targeting a 120fps frame rate on PS5 and Xbox Series X would be a high priority. In a game where every second matters and graceful movement can win the day, it should make each match feel much smoother to play. Respawn also said that there would be “more formal enhancements” with the next-gen version, so expect some kind of graphical upgrade alongside the frame rate boost.

Story Highlights

  • Apex Legends is one of the best shooters out right now, but you can only play it through backwards compatibility on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Yes, new-gen devices offer speedier loading times and a 1440p resolution, but you’re still playing the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. The next-gen patch was supposed to be released in 2021, but it was moved back to this year. The update is apparently just around the bend, according to PlayStation patch tracker PlayStation Game Size (thanks, VGC).

  • “Oh man, I WISH I had an update to share but we can’t say anything definitive at the moment—so can’t spoil anything here,” director of communications Ryan Rigney said. “Trust us tho, it’s in the works and we’re excited about it too.” Apex Legends was one of Steam’s most popular games of 2021.
