Season 15 of Apex Legends is well underway and as players continue to drop into Broken Moon in casual and ranked matches, the developers have given players the option to create an Apex Legends private match. Having the ability to create your own matches with customised rules and regulations is a great way to host and compete in numerous tournaments.

Apex private matches aren't exactly new to the battle royale as pro players have had access to them in order to take part in competitions featuring huge prize pools. Now, you can create one for yourself.

  • After January 10, launch Apex Legends.
  • Open the game mode selection menu and select the private match tab.
  • To create your own match, choose the create match option.
  • To join another match, enter a tournament participation code.
