About APEX HQ
APEX HQ is the Mass Effect: Andromeda multiplayer companion app, and it’s your way to stay connected outside of the game. But how exactly does it work? Don’t worry – keep reading for a quick primer on everything you’ll need to know about APEX HQ.
When you log in, make sure it’s with the same EA Account linked to the PC or console that you’re using to play Mass Effect: Andromeda. If you haven’t played multiplayer yet, you won’t have much data appearing in the app, but you’ll be able to track your progression as you start playing matches and unlocking characters, items and rewards.
To check that you’re using the correct EA account to sign in, you can open the Settings menu in-game, go to ‘Online’ and select ‘View EA account email.’ This will tell you the email of the EA Account associated with Mass Effect: Andromeda. If you’re using the wrong account, you can log out and back in with the correct one at any time.
Using the App
Now that you’ve signed in, it’s time to see what APEX HQ can do. We’ve highlighted some key features in each section:
• Here, you’ll get a snapshot of your multiplayer progression so far.
• Each widget on the homepage is customizable – you choose which ones to show or hide, and the order they appear.
