For as of now, Apex Legends players are currently indulging in the 2020 iteration of Fight or Fright event for the battle royale. However, aside from the Revenant-centered Shadow Royale being the newest thing for the title, more is just on the horizon in less than two weeks. That is the game arriving to Steam.

In a new blog post, Respawn Entertainment announces that users residing on the Valve storefront can finally drop into King’s Canyon or World’s Edge in the first week of November. The version will ship at the launch of Season 7 as well which has yet to be properly briefed. Additionally, the studio also tells that the Nintendo Switch version will be ushered to a new 2021 release window.

It was just this month that the ESRB rated Apex Legends for Nintendo Switch which initially suggested the version is close to shipping. But now, the developer explains that more time is needed to properly encapture the Apex Legends experience.

For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, 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.

Respawn Entertainment further reiterates on the Nintendo Switch version by echoing that whenever it does release – cross-platform play will be available on day one. As to when it could ship, it is best to guess that is outside of Season 7 territory for the time being and possibly even further on.

As for the approaching Steam version, the game will be free, of course. But for users looking to catch up, look no further than the Apex Legends: Champion Edition. The $39.99 bundle includes all Legends alongside the Season 7 addition with 1000 Apex Coins ($10) and a selection of unique in-game cosmetics.
