EA’s Apex Legends is available on Steam, so here’s how to connect your Origin account to Steam to move your progress across, and how to log out of Apex on Steam if you so desire. 

Apex Legends is just about to hit its 11th Season, and a lot has changed in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale since launch. It’s just about to host its fourth map and 19th legend. Along the way, EA added Apex Legends to Steam, so you can launch it directly from Valve’s platform.
