Does Apex Legends have progress between platforms?
Apex Legends doesn’t support progress between platforms on different consoles. You won’t be able to transfer your achievements, progress, or anything else to other systems if you play on more than one platform.
For example, if you play Apex Legends on PC and PlayStation, your progress won’t be transferred between both platforms.
Only Steam and Origin players have cross-platform progress as they are both PC platforms!
The first time you launch Apex Legends on Steam, they will ask you to link your EA Account. Make sure this is the account you want to link to!
