Apex Legends download - PS4
Getting the Apex Legends download on PS4 is simple - just head to the PSN Store on your PS4 and you can find Apex Legends ready to install under the "Free" tab on the left (it's also currently the headliner under "Featured"). You can also get the process started from your browser: simply visit the Apex Legends PSN Store page (opens in new tab), add the game to your cart, and complete your 'purchase' of this free game at checkout. From there, you can even queue up the install from your computer if your PS4 is in Rest Mode. In a surprising move for a multiplayer FPS, you do not need an active PlayStation Plus membership (opens in new tab) to participate in the online play.
Apex Legends download - Xbox One
As with the PS4 version, starting the Apex Legends download on Xbox One is as easy as visiting the Store page and getting the download going. You can also visit the Apex Legends Microsoft Store page (opens in new tab) to add the game to your account, though you'll need to have your Xbox One as one of the linked devices attached to your Microsoft account. You'll also need an active Xbox Live Gold subscription (opens in new tab) to play online, as is standard on the console.
Apex Legends download - PC
The Apex Legends download on PC is somewhat trickier than the console versions, but only slightly. To play, you'll need to install EA's Origin platform and create an account, which is easily done from the official Origin download page (opens in new tab). Once you've installed Origin, simply visit the Store and locate the Apex Legends page, then add the game to your library. You can also skip straight to this step and install Apex Legends directly via the official Apex Legends storefront page (opens in new tab). And no, there's no subscription service to worry about on PC, unlike console multiplayer.
