APEX Legends System Requirements

Apex Legends is a great game to play with a bunch of friends, but the last thing you want is to find out that your PC can’t handle the game due to its requirements. Before you get a hold of the game, it’s important to know the minimum and recommended requirements so you can see whether your PC is up to scratch

Definitely aim for the recommended requirements or higher though if possible as this is a game that definitely benefits from the improved hardware.

The good news regarding Apex Legends is that it’s a free-to-play game. You will, however, need a platform account to access it. As usual in F2P titles, additional purchases are available for this game if you choose to go down that route.

Game Details

Set in the Titanfall universe, Apex Legends lets you choose from a lineup of characters including soldiers, outlaws, and misfits who each have their own skill set for you to utilize. The aim of the game is to survive the Apex Games long enough to be crowned the victor. 

You can master your Legend’s abilities and join forces with other players, and their characters, to boost the strength of your team. This adds a great multiplayer aspect to the title and it is definitely something you want to play with a group of friends.

Apex Legends comes with an impressive communication system so that squadmates can communicate quickly during the heat of battle – although not listed in the game requirements, you’ll want a decent headset and microphone for this title, after all, communication is key.

With a great game aesthetic, fast-paced action and brilliant gun mechanics, this game is sure to be a lot of fun for you and your friends. Take a quick look below to make sure your system is up to the challenge.

Hardware Suggestions

The requirements above aren’t especially demanding. Of course, as always we would recommend you look at, and aim for the recommended settings in order to get the most out of this title. With action games and multiplayer games, it’s important that your PC can keep up with the fast pace of the game without lags or disruptions. The last thing you want is for your game to start stuttering just as you get into the heat of battle.

Bearing this in mind, we would recommend a PC within the mid-range of specs, roughly between the $600 to $700 range. Any system with this amount of power should be able to run APEX Legends adequately enough. You won’t likely need much more power than this so it’s up to you if you want to keep on building!
