Apex Legends

Apex Legends is a ‘battle royale’ shooter game set on an island where players can join a squad of 2 to 3 people and fight other squads until there is only the winning squad left. The game includes frequent imagery of violence towards people. Apex Legends is provided by EA and can be played on mobile devices such as Android smartphones, games consoles like the Xbox and PCs.

A player must search for useful weapons and resources on an island to battle against others. They can buy Apex Coins to buy in-game items such as new characters.

Players can communicate with each other via voice chat and messages. In voice chat they can mute another player or turn it off. They can also report another player.

On some gaming platforms, a player needs an EA account to play Apex Legends and if a player registers an account with an under-18 birth date, some safety settings are automatically applied. A parent can link a child’s EA account to their own EA account to apply parental controls. This can include managing online chat, spending and viewing time spent playing. Additional parental controls and safety settings may be available on the gaming platforms used to play Apex Legends, such as PlayStation.
