Respawn Entertainment has shared some welcome news with the community of Apex Legends. The free-to-play battle royale will finally be getting cross-platform progression on 31st October.

This update will arrive alongside Season 19 and the newest Legend Conduit. This cross-progression update will include account merging - with all existing items and cosmetics available on one account that can be played across multiple platforms.

According to the official blog, players will be phased into this over a period of time to "ensure stability for this anticipated feature".

"Keep an eye out for an in-game prompt to initiate the migration to bring together your content and progression. Cross Progression data will be associated with your EA account. Due to the nature of merging accounts across platforms, various aspects of Apex Legends (Apex Coins, Crafting Materials, etc.) will be impacted differently."

It's also noted how unlocked Legends and inventory will be the same across platforms excluding platform exclusives. You can learn more on EA's website.
