If you're considering downloading Apex Legends and jumping aboard the most recent battle hype train, look no further this guide will show you exactly how to download Apex Legends on each gaming platform. Apex Legends is completely free-to-play on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, which means there is very little barrier to entry, unless you game solely on Nintendo consoles or mobile phone.
Getting Apex Legends to download on PS4 is easy - just head to the PSN Store on your PS4 and you can find Apex Legends ready to install under the "Free" tab on the left. You can also get the process started from your browser: simply visit the Apex Legends PSN Store page, add the game to your cart, and complete your 'purchase' of this free game at checkout. From there, you can even queue up the install from your computer if your PS4 is in Rest Mode. You don't even need an active PlayStation Plus subscription to participate in the online play.
As with the PS4 version, starting the Apex Legends download on Xbox One is as easy as visiting the Store page and getting the download going. You can also visit the Apex Legends Microsoft Store page to add the game to your account, though you'll need to have your Xbox One as one of the linked devices attached to your Microsoft account. Unlike the PS4 you will need an active Xbox Live Gold subscription to play online.
To play, you'll need to install EA's Origin platform and create an account, which is easily done from the official Origin download page. Once you've installed Origin, just visit the Store and locate the Apex Legends page, then add the game to your library. You can also skip straight to this step and install Apex Legends directly via the official Apex Legends storefront page.
