Download and install Origin

After verifying that your computer actually has the minimum requirements to play Apex Legends, I would say that you are ready to proceed with the download and installation of Origin , the software needed to download the Respawn Entertainment title and play it.

Connect, therefore, to the official website of Electronic Arts and click on the item Download for Origin on PC on the main page. At this point, press the orange button Get the game and the download of the Apex Legends installer will start. Once this is done, start the ApexLegendsInstaller.exe file obtained and press the Install Origin item . Then check the box I have read and accept the Origin End User License Agreement and click Continue . In case you are asked, click on Yes to grant all the necessary permissions to start the setup.

Now, enter your EA Account email address and password and click on the Login item . I recommend that you check the Keep me signed in box so that you don’t have to re-enter this information every time you start Origin. In case you do not have an account yet , click on CREATE AN ACCOUNT , enter Country / Region and date of birth , check the box I accept the agreement with the user and click on Next .

At this point, enter the email address , password , public ID , Name (optional) and Surname (optional) and press the orange Next button . Once this is done, choose a security question from those proposed and enter the relative security answer (useful for recovering access credentials in case of loss).
