Apex Legends will introduce PC, PS4, and Xbox One cross-play next week

Respawn Entertainment has announced that Apex Legends will allow cross-play starting next week, initially in beta.

Cross-platform multiplayer will be on by default, but will separate PC and console players. A console player who joins a PC player in a party will be able to play against other PC players.

On the same day, the Aftermarket event will launch, featuring a new limited game mode called Flashpoint and exclusive rewards. It will be active until October 20.

Apex Legends will introduce cross-play and the Aftermarket event on October 6.
