Apex Legends System Requirements 2020

Can I run Apex Legends?

Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by EA. Like most FPS games requirements, meeting the recommended specs will result in smooth and outstanding gameplay. Talk about minimum requirements, your video card should be at least NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 or Radeon HD 773. A decent processor like Intel Core i3-6300 3.8GHz or equivalent will put your PC on the battle line to enjoy this game. For the memory, your RAM should not be below 6GB and a dedicated VRAM of 1GB is as important as any of the requirements mentioned.

Surpassing the minimum requirements will be glorious to the overall visuals of the game. The gap between the minimum and recommended GPU RAM from 1 to 8GB will be able to punch in the difference. Your PC needs at least Intel i5 3570K or its AMD equivalent and have your RAM ready at 8GB or higher. The recommended video card should be Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290 which are common video card models to achieve 60fps gameplay in this type of genre.

Apex Legends Details

The first season of Apex Legends was released last February 2019, titled World Frontier. The recently finished 2nd season, Battle Charge, ended this October to continue the battle with Meltdown, their 3rd. Each season, new features, unlockable characters, and items are added. Respawn Entertainment is known for the studio’s work with Titanfall series. With Apex Legends, the game was praised by critics for its gameplay, progression system, and fusion elements from various genres. The game surpassed over 25 million players by the end of its first week, and 50 million within its first month.

Apex Legends is set in the same sci-fi universe as Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall franchise. Unlike other prominent battle-royale games, it allows the player to choose from a selection of player characters before each round, each with a unique set of abilities for you to improve your Legend’s mastery. The game focuses heavily on teamwork that includes a system of nonverbal communication.
