The EA Play Live event was initially supposed to be in early June, but due to the tragic incident of George Floyd, this event, just like many other gaming events got postponed. On June 19, 2020, the event finally happened. We got tons of news regarding lots of Electronic Arts games. The news which was most interesting to us was about Electronic Arts’ most popular Battle Royale game, Apex Legends.
For those who are unaware, Apex Legends is one of the most popular free to play battle royale games to exist. It was developed by Respawn Entertainment who also made Titanfall 2. It launched in 2019 and is available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Earlier this month, Electronic Arts started adding a huge chunk of their games to the Steam store. However, many games were not made available, such as Apex: Legends, Titanfall series, recent Battlefield games, Sims 4, etc. But, these were expected to arrive soon and then it happened. Just a few hours before the EA Play Live, Electronic Arts added the recent titles in Steam, and just like the previous additions, are being sold at great discounts. Apex Legends did not arrive, but it will come in the near future.
During the EA Play Live event, we got news of Apex Legends finally coming to Steam. Not only did we get a release date, but we also got news of Apex Legends getting crossplay support. Apex Legends is going to get crossplay for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (both Steam and Origin) this Fall. Other than that, we also got some news about the new seasonal event and a new limited-time game mode. This upcoming seasonal event will be called Lost Treasures Collection Event. Here is the Official Trailer
In the event, we get to know that this new season is called Season 5:Fortune’s Favor, and the Armed and Dangerous Evolved is all about snipers and shotguns, with a twist. The armor is Evo and there are no respawn beacons in the map. But, you can still revive with the help of the new item, the Mobile Respawn Beacon. You get one of these at the start of the game and can use this once in the game. You can decide who to bring back, when to bring back and where to bring back. We also get a new town takeover in this new season, Crypto’s Map Room which will give us some information about the new character, Crypto. Just like other seasons, we also get season exclusive cosmetics.
Then, they announced of the release date for Lost Treasure Collection Event. It is going to be released on June 23, 2020, so yes, just a few days from now. Here is the full EA Play Live event, if you are interested in watching it for yourself
