After years of waiting, mandatory cross-progression is finally coming to Season 19 of Apex Legends.
The Apex Legends community started asking the developers about crossplay and cross-progression as soon as the battle royale launched. Although Respawn Entertainment successfully implemented crossplay just a year after the game’s release, cross-progression has taken much longer.
Now the highly requested feature is officially included in Apex Legends: Ignite and those with multiple accounts will need to merge them. Here’s exactly how cross-progression works in the upcoming Apex Legends update.
Respawn Entertainment is implementing a mandatory cross-progression system in Apex Legends Season 19. When the new season launches, players with multiple accounts on different platforms will be asked to merge their accounts into one.
Luckily, players will keep their highest tier account, along with their badges and cosmetics from all of their previous accounts. Even though you now only have one account across all platforms, the items associated with your previous accounts will not be deleted.
Statistics, on the other hand, are not merged. Therefore, only your stats from your highest account remain.
After a successful merge, players will have a single account on Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Nintendo Switch. There will not be the option for players to maintain separate accounts on all platforms.
Cross-progression isn’t the only change coming to Season 19 of Apex Legends. Conduit, the first new Legend since Ballistic, comes to Battle Royale with exciting new abilities. Players can try out the new character while exploring the six new POIs on Storm Point.
The new season also brings weapon changes, including a nerf to the Hemlok and a buff to the Wingman. In addition, the Wingman will be removed from floor loot and will only be found in care packages in the future.
Stay tuned for more updates as Apex Legends: Ignite gets closer.
