Apex Legends is currently available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Origin and Steam. It's free-to-play, so you can jump in without spending a dime, but of course, it features the inevitable optional microtransactions.
It's one of the most-played games in the world, having passed 100 million players in early 2022.
If you prefer single-player games, Respawn Entertainment is currently working on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which will launch in March as a sequel to the highly-praised Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
