You’ll want to know how much storage space Apex Legends will take on your system before installing it, so we’ve covered the exact game file size on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox.

Since its release in 2019, Apex Legends has become one of the fastest-growing battle royale titles with a large player count in 2021. Some fans just play public games, while others compete in Ranked Leagues.

The developers often add new content through various update patches, so you’ll need to know how much storage space is required before you install the game.

Installing Apex Legends requires around 74.05 GB of storage space on your PC or laptop. This means that you can’t enjoy the game on a low-end PC with relatively low disk space.

If you’re running low on storage then you can try deleting some of the larger files in your system, including other games that are already installed. You can also run a system cleaner to remove files that are taking up space.

Once you have enough space, you can try downloading Apex Legends. This can take an estimated time of 12 to 14 hours, but this can vary based on the speed of your Internet connection. You might get it done quicker if your network is fast.

As of version 1.82, the Apex Legends takes up around 69.82 GB on PlayStations. You’ll be able to access the game when approximately 28.95 GB of the file has completed downloading.

However, you’ll need to wait for the rest of the installation before you can access network features and play online. Installation of the base game will probably take a few minutes or an hour.

The remaining download could also take an hour or two, depending on your Internet connection.

Apex Legends game file size on Xbox

The Apex Legends game file size is around 69.9 GB on Xbox Series X and 75.7 GB on Series S. This means that you’ll have to wait several hours for the game to finish installing before you can play it.

You can keep the download going on your system while you play something else. If you feel like doing something else then just make sure that your system isn’t powered off when leaving the room.

As with PlayStation, the installation time could range between one hour or several depending on the speed of your network connection. You can speed it up by making sure that no other devices or apps are downloading updates or other large files.

Apex Legends game file size on Nintendo Switch

You only need around 24.85 GB of free space to install the battle royale title in your Switch. The Apex Legends game file is much smaller on the Nintendo Switch than it is on other platforms.

The success of Apex Legends since its launch has been spectacular, so it came as no surprise that fans asked the devs to bring the battle royale to other platforms. It finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch on March 9, 2021.

The game size will continue to grow over time as Respawn add new content to it. Apex Legends Season 11 will bring the new Legend Ash and a new map called Storm Point that players can battle on.

Apex Legends Season 11’s Collection Event has been leaked by dataminers, revealing details such as skins and the release date.

Published

on

A brand new Apex Legends Collection Event is on its way in Season 11, bringing a space-pirate theme with the name “Raiders.” Here’s all the information you need including the release date, skins, and Heirloom.

Apex Legends has brought loads of new content for players through Season 11, as well as shifting the Legend meta with various buffs and nerfs.

Respawn is great at keeping the game fresh and has done an excellent job at staying on top of fixes and updates. One thing Apex Legends is known for is its extravagant Collection Event updates that come every season.

One will be arriving in Season 11 and we have the details.

When is the Apex Legends Raiders Collection Event?

The Apex Legends Raiders Collection Event will officially release December 7 at around 10 AM PST / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST.

The event will subsequently end on December 21.

The event will also double up as this year’s Holo-day Bash event, bringing back the Winter Express LTM and festive-themed skins.

Raiders Collection Event content

Skins

With the release of the Apex Legends Raiders Collection Event trailer, we finally got a glimpse at the skins.

The theme will be around Pirates, which is very fitting for Storm Point’s tropical setting. The skins will feature Pirate-themed iconographies such as skull and bones, eye patches, and also bandanas.

Wattson Heirloom

The Apex Legends Raiders Collection Event will also bring a new Heirloom for players to unlock through obtaining all 24 items in the collection.

This season’s Heirloom is for Wattson. The Wattson Heirloom was previously leaked, and it seems the design was spot on.

The Heirloom looks like some sort of electric prodding device that features emotes with a Nessie plushie. The Heirloom also seems to have a digital screen with a Nessie Tamagotchi that Wattson can interact with and keep happy.

This Nessie Tamagotchi will likely react to Wattson’s actions like when she gets a kill with it or even if she just pulls it out.


That’s all the current information we have on the Apex Legends Season 11 Raiders Collection Event. As more information is released, we will update this piece so stay tuned.

Now that we have finally entered the festive season of the year, Apex Legends’ players are looking forward to the Christmas event, known as Holo-day Bash. Here are all the details on Season 11’s rendition of the event.

Apex Legends has had a lot of content in Season 11, most notably the new Legend Ash and map Storm Point.

This new content hasn’t stopped players from getting excited about the in-season events. Just recently we received new information and leaks surrounding the Season 11 Collection Event, but what about Christmas?

Apex Legends Holo-day Bash

Every year Respawn Entertainment hosts its own Christmas event in Apex Legends called Holo-day Bash. The event usually brings new skins and a fan-favorite LTM called Winter Express.

The Season 11 Holo-day Bash event is set to bring something similar. However, according to a recent PlayStation leak, we will be seeing both Season 11’s Collection Event and the Holo-day Bash event combined into one.

When is the Apex Legends Holo-day Bash event?

There has been no official word from Respawn regarding the release date for Holo-day Bash. Having said that, as the previous renditions of the event have launched early in December, we expect to see an announcement soon.

The PlayStation Store actually revealed the date for the Season 11 Collection Event, which will be doubling up as this year’s Holo-day Bash event. revealing that it will indeed drop on December 7, around 10 AM PST / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST.

The event will end on December 21, so make sure you are on during this period to experience the Apex festivities!

Apex Legends Season 11 Holo-day Bash content

Winter Express LTM

First off, players can expect the Winter Express LTM. This is a limited-time mode that sees players battle it out on the World’s Edge train as it stops at various POIs.

Winter Express has returned every Holo-day Bash event, so we expect it to return but perhaps with some changes and updates.

Festive skins, challenges, & rewards

For the Holo-day Bash event, we also expect some festive skins to drop. There hasn’t been any official announcement from Respawn, but we suspect some of the older Holo-day Bash skins will be returning, as well as new ones for Legends that haven’t participated in the Christmas event yet.

These skins may be available within a section of the store, or they may be available in a similar fashion to the skins in the Monsters Within Thematic event.

The event will also likely bring new challenges and rewards for players. Often we see Reward Trackers for events, which require players to gain Event Points by completing event-themed challenges, which then unlock rewards and prizes.

The rewards vary from weapon skins, Legend skins, to charms and Battle Pass Stars.


That’s all for the Apex Legends Season 11 Holo-day Bash event. We’ll be updating this piece as and when Respawn releases an official announcement. For now, check out our piece on Apex Legends’ third Anniversary.
