Solo and Duo modes could release soon
In its current state, Apex Legends can be played with a three-player squad only, but a recent leak suggests that the game will soon get a Solo and Duo team modes.
A fan over at Twitter found a piece of code in the game which hints at Solo and two-player teams modes in the making for Apex Legends. EA hasn’t commented on the upcoming feature yet, but we can all say it’s obvious that Solo and Duo modes will come to Apex Legends.
But when are Solo and Duo mode coming to Apex Legends?
We expect these modes to be the first on the list for EA to bring to the game. Both of these modes, or at-least the Duo mode will come first as it’ll take advantage of the awesome ping-based communication system the game currently uses to keep squad members together in the battlefield.
We’ll be sure to update this post when EA releases an update for Apex Legends with the Solo and Duo modes. Stay tuned!
