Respawn Entertainment has confirmed this Apex Legends Upgrades for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles will be released tomorrow with the new Warriors Collection event. So far, the battle royale shooter has shared versions across console generations. But when the update goes live – usually around 1pm ET – console gamers will finally be able to join those on PC, with support for natively rendered 4K (except for the S series), HDR, better shadow maps and greater detail removal.
All versions on consoles are still limited to 60Hz, with 120Hz gameplay listed as a future upgrade (however, once the PS5 supports 120Hz output, it may also force it on games that don’t have built-in support if you want to try it). When I spoke to the developers before the start of the current season, Defiance, They said that throughout the year we would see new next-gen features with the new seasons. Other features confirmed in the works include adaptive trigger and haptic support for the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller.
The Warriors Collection Event brings next-gen versions of Apex Legends to PS5 and XSX!

The other area where the systems differ is how players get their updated versions. On Xbox Series X and Series S it is Smart Delivery technology used by Microsoft means your console should automatically download the correct version without intervention once it starts up. It’s a bit more complicated on PlayStation. If you already have the game installed on a PS5, find the title in your Game Hub, select Options instead of Play Game, then tell it to download the PS5 version. If you don’t have it installed but have played it before, simply find the game in your library and make sure you select the PS5 version when prompted.
On all consoles and PC, the second half of Season 12 includes many fixes to stop things like hackers having dual-wield guns activated and various glitches that could be used to load weapons with a loading mechanic like the Rampage LMG or the to exploit Sentinel snipers. Of course, there’s also a new selection of cosmetic upgrades to purchase and a new heirloom for players to purchase to use with the Crypto character.
The Warriors event will also bring back the limited-time Control mode for another two weeks with some improvements and a new map. It was well-received by players last time out, but there’s no word yet on whether we can expect it to become a permanent part of the game, or if we’ll see even more ways to play that deviate from the standard battle- Remove Royale Setup.
One thing that wasn’t mentioned at all in the update was last week’s massive leak of content that revealed new characters, skins, weapons, and emotes that the developers are working on. The extent of the leaks is said to extend over the next few years for the game, but based on the changes we’ve seen, I think there could be more to come Apex Legends Surprises not yet revealed.
