Apex Legends PS5 rating coming in Taiwan and Europe

The popular battle royale title Apex Legends may be coming to PS5 soon. The game recently appeared on both Taiwan and Europe’s game rating board for both PS5 and Xbox Series X. The game is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, PCs and mobile devices. The news comes just after the release of the game’s twelfth season, “Defiance”.

When will Apex Legends come out on PS5?

Earlier this year, Apex Legends appeared in the PlayStation Network database, similarly hinting at a PS5 release. In particular, we learned that without updates, the game would take up about 80 GB of space. Fans speculated that the game would come to next-gen consoles in addition to the most recent season. Interestingly, the European rating also includes a suspected release date of February 8, 2022, possibly indicating that the PS5 version would be released a day before the new season.

Sadly, that doesn’t seem to be the case, as Respawn hasn’t commented on a formal release date yet. Given the timing, though, it wouldn’t be surprising if Respawn Entertainment decides to release the next-gen version later this year.

Anyway, the latest season still offers a lot of new content in the meantime. Season 12 of Apex Legends has introduced an all-new limited-time Domination-style game mode that is sure to pique the interest of Titanfall 2 fans out there. The new season also added the new legend Mad Maggie as well as various balances, bug fixes and map changes.

Opinion: Apex Legends PS5 is nice, but cross-progression would be better

André writes… The final season will no doubt bring some much-needed refreshing changes to the game. In a similar vein, a native next-gen Apex Legends would also have some nice improvements to resolution, FPS, and overall performance compared to the lackluster PS4. However, it’s a bit confusing to me why Respawn Entertainment still hasn’t implemented multiplatform cross-progression. It looks like it might be more useful to players than a next-gen version, but I think consolidating three years worth of accounts might be a little hard to manage.

In other news, Boss Team Games has confirmed that The Evil Dead: The Game will receive post-launch content spanning multiple seasons. The PS4 and PS5 beta software test also added voice commands, open games, and UI updates.
