Apex Legends is already looking great on the Nintendo Switch as developer Respawn Entertainment is working hard to bring the team-based Battle Royale shooter to the hybrid console.
At EA Play Live 2020, publisher Electronic Arts announced that Apex Legends will be released on the Nintendo Switch this fall. In addition, cross-play has been activated for the game and the Lost Treasures collection event has been unveiled.
Apex Legends game director Chad Grenier said in an interview with GameSpot that the Nintendo Switch port has been under construction for a while, but it seems to be working well.
"It's not without challenges, but I say it looks really good and runs very well," said Grenier, adding that Respawn has made some changes, such as the Nintendo Switch's motion control support through a gyro target function.
"We're currently testing it and making sure it's going well. It's worth it," added Grenier.
Grenier again confirmed that Crossplay will be part of the Nintendo Switch version of Apex Legends and offers the ability to play games with players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC through Origin and Steam.
The same content, according to Grenier, will also be available on all platforms for Apex Legends.

While EA Play Live 2020 included highlights like Star Wars: Squadrons and the upcoming addition of more Electronic Arts titles to Steam like Titanfall 2, the event didn't offer any glimpse of the publisher's future at a time when players were looking ahead the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Digital Trends has turned to Electronic Arts for plans for upcoming announcements, including whether cross-play will be available for more games in the near future.
