APEX LEGENDS: HOW DOES CROSS-PLAY WORK?

Cross-play allows you to play with your friends, regardless of their gaming platform. Apex Legends welcomed the feature recently. We explain how it works.

In recent years, more and more developers have made cross-play available for their online games, as the community is particularly fond of this possibility to play with their friends, regardless of their platform. The cross-play allows, indeed, play between PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch (sometimes mobile devices, depending on availability of games).

Since Respawn introduced cross-play at the end of 2020, it is, therefore, possible to play together, without any platform restrictions, to the delight of part of the community. The other, on the other hand, isn’t particularly a fan of this feature.

If you are not familiar with the cross-play in Apex Legends, we explain everything there is to know about it below.

HOW DOES CROSS-PLAY WORK IN APEX LEGENDS?

You should know that cross-play is enabled by default in Apex Legends. However, it will only be active if you are playing with a user from another platform. Therefore, if you are a console player and you do not have a PC player in your party, or you are playing solo, you will fall into a console lobby. Likewise, if you are on PC, you will only fall with console players if one of your teammates is on the console.

HOW DO I TURN OFF CROSS-PLAY IN APEX LEGENDS?

On console, cross-play can be disabled by going to settings. However, PC gamers cannot turn off the feature. But as we explained to you, if you are playing solo or only have PC players in your party, you shouldn’t run into console players.

HOW DO I INVITE A FRIEND TO APEX LEGENDS?

If you want to play Apex Legends with friends from another platform, here are the steps:

  • Go to the “Friends” menu at the bottom right of your screen.
  • Click on “Find a friend”
  • Then enter his nickname, to obtain a list of players. You just have to invite your friend.
  • Requests will be displayed on the top left of your screen.
  • When the request is accepted, you will be able to play together.

Apex Legends boosting: what does it mean?

A form of legal cheating called “boosting” occurs when high-level players gain access to lower-level accounts in order to increase the rank of those accounts. Players are ranked based on performance and results in Esports games such as Apex Legends.

Boosting is a method of completing difficult levels in video games. Boosting in Apex Legends is extremely beneficial to the players, and it cannot be called cheating because it is legal. Therefore, if you wish to improve your Valorant level, you are able to do so privately.
