After years of waiting, mandatory cross-progression is finally coming to Apex Legends Season 19.
The Apex Legends community started asking the developers for crossplay and cross-progression as soon as the Battle Royale took off. Although Respawn Entertainment successfully implemented crossplay just one year after the game's launch, cross-progression has taken much longer.
Now, the highly requested feature is officially included in Apex Legends: Ignite, and those with multiple accounts will be forced to merge them. Here's exactly how cross-progression works in the upcoming Apex Legends update.
Here's How Mandatory Cross-Progression Works in Apex Legends Season 19
Respawn Entertainment is implementing a mandatory cross-progression system in Apex Legends Season 19. Upon launching the new season, players with multiple accounts on different platforms will be asked to merge their accounts into one.
Fortunately, players will maintain their account with the highest level, along with their badges and cosmetics from all their prior accounts. Despite now only having one account on all platforms, the items connected to your previous accounts will not be wiped.
Statistics, on the other hand, will not merge. Therefore, only your stats from your highest account will remain.
After the merge is successful, players will have a singular account on Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Nintendo Switch. There will be no option for players to maintain their separate accounts on all platforms.
Apex Legends Season 19: What We Know So Far
Cross-progression is not the only change coming in Apex Legends Season 19. Conduit, the first new Legend since Ballistic, is coming to the Battle Royale with exciting new abilities. Players can try out the fresh character as they explore the six new POIs on Storm Point.
The new season also features weapon changes, including a nerf to the Hemlok and a buff to the Wingman. Plus, the Wingman is being removed from floor loot and can only be found in Care Packages moving forward.
Stay tuned for more updates as Apex Legends: Ignite draws closer.
