EA has announced it is in the process of bringing all of its games to Steam, the online platform from game developer Valve where you can buy, play, create, and discuss PC games. (The platform hosts thousands of games (as well as downloadable content, or DLC, and user-generated features called “mods”) from major developers and indie game designers alike.)
EA has already added The Sims 4, Titanfall 2, Need for Speed Most Wanted, A Way Out, and Dead Space 3 to Steam and will continue to bring all their games to the PC platform.
This includes Apex Legends, which has made a notable name for itself on Xbox and PlayStation and Origin on PC. Now, as EA expands their involvement with Steam, Apex Legends will ramp up their amount of PC players. This will expand the crossplay between systems, which is similar to Fortnite and Call of Duty Warzone. Not to mention, Apex Legends is also getting a new Nintendo Switch version.
As crossplay comes into Apex Legends, how Respawn will manage the keyboard and mouse players vs controller problem, is unknown right now.
Apex Legends will come to Steam in the fall, along with the ability to crossplay with all systems.
