With regional beta tests starting soon, Apex Legends Mobile is up for pre-registration on Google Play. A handheld version of Apex Legends, the upcoming game is free-to-play battle royale game available on PC and consoles. Apex Legends, launched in February of 2019, tasted immense popularity among gamers on all platforms. For quite some time now, fans have been waiting for the game to make its way to mobile. However, the launch date is yet to be announced. Apex Legends Mobile will not be supporting cross play with PC and consoles and will be exclusive to mobile players.
Back in May of 2019, Apex Legends Mobile came into light, when Electronic Arts (EA) mentioned their plan on bringing Apex Legends to mobile, after seeing how well the game performed on other platforms. EA CEO, Andrew Wilson, last year in June, during a conference call mentioned that the company plans on releasing Apex Legends Mobile by the end of the year, but that did not happen. The game now has been made official and is up for pre-registrations on Android via Google Play.
Through a post on its website, the company shared the development, also mentioning the details about regional beta tests commencing later this month. These beta tests will be exclusive to a few thousand users in India and Philippines. Apex Legends Mobile, later this year will roll out more regions around the world. Closed beta tests available only on Android will be further expanded to accommodate more players and implement iOS support.
Just like on PC and consoles, the game will be free- to-play on mobile. Different from PC and console versions of the game, it will come with its own Battle Pass, collectible cosmetics, and unique unlockables. The developer of Apex Legends, Respawn has set up a dedicated team for Apex Legends Mobile.
Putting a twist on the battle royale genre, Apex Legends introduce characters with abilities. All with their own passive and active abilities that introduce new ways to battle, there is a growing list of characters in the game.
