Apex Legends Could Be Getting A PS5 And Xbox Series X Version Soon

Apex Legends could be getting a next-gen version for PS5 and Xbox Series X soon, bringing better graphics and new features to the game.

Recently, a PS5 version of Apex Legends appeared on the PSN database. The information was revealed on Twitter and shared by Alpha Intel.

“This indicates next-gen console update potentially dropping with Season 12”, said the tweet. It also states the size of the game is 80GB on PS5.


It’s likely that a next-gen version of Apex Legends could happen. A lot of popular games have been getting next-gen versions lately, so Apex Legends is a likely pick thanks to its continued popularity.

Next-Gen Boosts

Other big games like Call of Duty: Warzone received an FPS boost to 120FPS last year. Apex Legends could get a similar improvement.

Right now, Apex Legends only supports PS4 and Xbox One versions. PS5 and Xbox Series X both run this old-gen version. Because of this, the battle royale shooter runs at a stable 60 frames per second on all consoles. It also lacks next-gen bonuses like the PS5’s DualSense features.

Hopefully we’ll get some confirmation from Respawn soon on whether this next-gen version is set to launch with Season 12. Currently Season 11 is still ongoing with the new map Storm Point and legend Ash.
