These were his words: “Moving Apex Legends to such a small screen is a huge achievement for us, and we couldn’t have done it without our friends from Panic Button. We are very proud of the results that the team has managed to achieve with the optimizations for Switch, which will allow us to give players the complete gaming experience of Apex Legends wherever they go. Also, as the game will arrive on Switch a few weeks after the start of Season 8, players will receive 30 battle pass levels for free. For the first two weeks following the launch, Switch players will also get double experience points. “.
