If you're looking to get in on the Apex Legends action on PlayStation, here's what you need to know.

Respawn's Apex Legends has quickly become one of the most popular battle royale games out there. Set in the same universe as Titanfall, the game launched to much surprise in 2019, with many believing that Respawn Entertainment had been working on a third installment to the Titanfall series. Being a free-to-play multiplayer game, Apex Legends has surpassed over 100 million players as of April 2021.

Apex Legends is available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, so many players might be wondering if a PlayStation Plus subscription is needed in order to play the game.

Does You Need PS Plus to Play Apex Legends?

It's good news for PlayStation owners; Apex Legends does not require a PlayStation Plus subscription in order to be played. One of the major draws of this game is it being free-to-play, and with no PS Plus subscription needed either, it's a great one to get stuck into if you don't want to splash any cash.

Players will simply need a standard PlayStation account in order to join in with the action. If you do already happen to have a PS Plus account, there are some extra benefits available when playing Apex Legends but these are only cosmetics. The PlayStation Plus Play Pack can be downloaded from the PlayStation store, netting players two character skins (Horizon and Pathfinder), two weapon skins (Alternator SMG and Triple Take), and two banners (also Horizon and Pathfinder).

Apex Legends is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC. A mobile version of the game is set to launch next year.
