Apex Legends is a solid game, managing to make the battle royale gameplay feel fast and action-packed, which is what fans want from this genre, along with sprinkles of character lore here or there.

While the game is a good one, it does have that dreaded free-to-play sign hanging above it, with many newer players worried that this is a free-to-play but pay-to-win kind of situation, something that's often the case.

Is Apex Legends Pay-to-Win?

In terms of just gameplay, Apex Legends is not a pay-to-win game since you can technically master any character but your skill will be the defining factor in most gunfights.

Sure, abilities can give you an edge, and you'll need to grind (or pay) to unlock some characters, but none are inherently better than the base roster you start with.

However, if you want to make the most out of this game then the Battle Pass is available, especially since it means more XP and more in-game currency to buy those skins or characters, among other things.

So yes, you can just play the game, get good, grind, and play with your friends without having to spend a dime.

People are probably curious about this since the game is now available on the Nintendo Switch, a console that is fairly popular with casual fans and kids, so don’t be afraid to check it out.

Just turn off that cross-play function.

Apex Legends is now available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
