Apex Legends will work on Steam without running Origin

Respawn confirms: 'Apex will launch directly with Steam without running Origin'

EA made the surprise announcement in the last 24 hours that Apex Legends would be coming to Steam, as well as the game hitting 70 million players, and some even bigger news -- it's coming to mobile platforms and most likely even next-gen consoles in the Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Scarlett consoles in late-2020.


But the cherry on top of all of this is that Apex Legends will work with Steam and not require Origin running, unlike other EA games that will require Origin to be running in order to work on Steam.

We know this because Respawn Entertainment staffer 'thezilch' commented on this Reddit post about Apex Legends will be coming to Steam in 2020!, they replied saying: "Not true. Apex will launch directly with Steam without running Origin".

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
