Respawn Entertainment has some good news and bad news for Apex Legends. First, the good – the free-to-play battle royale shooter is set to arrive on November 4th for Steam. This will coincide with the launch of Season 7, which introduces a new Legend and Battle Pass into the mix.

Those currently on Origin can retain progression and unlocks on Steam or switch between the two platforms as desired. If you are playing on Steam at any time during Season 7, then you expect some exclusive gun charms based on Half-Life and Portal. Whether Steam and Origin players can group together is unknown though.

The bad news is that the Switch version has been delayed to next year. In a recent statement on the same, game director Chad Genier stated, “We’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time. This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out.”

Genier did confirm that the Switch version would launch with cross-platform play supported. One can also expect it to have full feature parity with other versions, which includes new seasonal content. Apex Legends is currently available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC via Origin. Stay tuned for more details on Season 7 in the coming days.
