Recently, Respawn Entertainment announced a bunch of new features that Apex Legends fans can expect, starting with a crossplay beta that goes live tomorrow. The developer also confirmed a new quality of life change that players gunning for those damage badges will appreciate.

Replying to a Twitter comment, Respawn's Jason McCord confirmed that the development team is planning to introduce a real-time damage counter during matches. The user who made the Twitter comment expressed that he was annoyed that he was just 25 damage away from gaining the 4,000 damage badge and asked if Respawn would introduce a damage meter that could alert the player on how much damage they have dealt.

Despite the ongoing pandemic, Respawn ensured the timely launch of Apex Legends' Season 6. And it seems that the developer is continuing to support the game in various ways, one of which is a Nintendo Switch port. Respawn has confirmed that Apex Legends' Switch port hasn't been canceled, and it is currently in development.

Additionally, there's some new information for fans awaiting Apex Legends' mobile port. While it isn't officially confirmed, a recent job listing on Respawn Entertainment's website states that the company is currently looking for a Senior Game Designer who could work on mobile games. What's more interesting about this specific job listing is that it is listed under the Apex Legends section, which seemingly confirms that Apex Legends Mobile is currently in the works.

Since the game was released last February, Apex Legends has come a long way. The variety of Legends that have been introduced to the game every three months keep the gameplay experience fresh and shake up the meta. Moreover, with the launch of PS5 and Xbox Series X, it will be interesting to see if Respawn implements ray-tracing features in Apex Legends. But given how much work that the developer already has on its hands, graphical improvements probably aren't the current priority.

Apex Legends is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The game is also being developed for the Nintendo Switch.
