Apex Legends Heads to Steam and Switch, Cross-Play Support Fall 2020; Lost Treasures Collection Event

Apex Legends

Electronic Arts (EA) have announced that Apex Legends will be coming to Steam and Nintendo Switch, adding cross-play support, and their Lost Treasures Collection Event.

Alongside the two platform announcements, it was announced that the game will support cross-play between Windows PC (whether it’s Origin or Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

The Lost Treasure Collection Event is Apex Legends‘ fifth season, and will run for June 23rd to July 7th. The event will add a limited time mode called Armed and Dangerous: Evolved.

Armed and Dangerous is the shotgun and sniper rifle only mode that has been in the game before. Evolved however only has the Evo Armor available (which players spawn with). No Blue< Purple, or Red tier armor may spawn.

The mode also removes Respawn Beacons, and adds Mobile Respawn Beacons as loot. After Armed and Dangerous: Evolved is finished, it will be added to the loot pool in the entire game for both public and ranked matches.

The Lost Treasure Collection Event will also have an event prize track, and a “SpecialOffers” tab to the cosmetics store, and 24 Event Limited cosmetics to purchase or find in Event Packs.

Those who obtain all 24 Pack Items will unlock the Mirage Heirloom set for free. Those who do not can still earn it via the heirloom crafting shop.
