At a recent preview event for Apex Legends Season 14: Hunted, Respawn Interactive spoke about some of the back-end changes it is making to the game past this huge update.
One of the most requested features is cross-progression, the ability to play on either PC, Xbox, Switch or PlayStation and level up your account — and we can confirm that this is in the works. Design director Evan Nikolich spoke candidly about wanting to play on his Switch while he travels, and use that progression on his PC when he gets home.
Apex Legends wasn’t built with this in mind — when Apex launched back in 2019, cross-progression was not a thing developers planned for usually — so it will take time to implement correctly. The team is unknown, however, and believes it will get it working in the future.
Another requested feature is “gifting”. Theoretically, this will allow players to gift skins, voice lines, and even Apex Coins to your friends — if, for example, you happen to have a bunch of Wattson skins that you never use, you could trade with someone that has something you want .
Lastly, the Charge Rifle was talked about briefly, due to how popular it became in Season 13. While Respawn has no plans to touch the rifle in Season 14, the developer is looking at what it can do to make it “less spiky”. But for fans of the Charge Rifle, you can rest easy knowing that for Season 14, it most likely won’t receive any changes.
