Publisher Electronic Arts and developer Respawn Entertainment have announced Apex Legends Mobile for smartphones.
The new mobile version is coming to both iOS and Android devices with “streamlined controls and thoughtful optimizations” which Respawn notes are the “result in the most advanced battle royale combat available on a phone.”
While details are scant, Respawn notes the game is a new version of Apex Legends that aims to be true to the original arena shooter.
Apex Legends Mobile will roll out worldwide via a bunch of tests, beginning with smaller closed beta tests that include a few thousand players in both India and the Philippines sometime this spring on Android devices. As testing progresses, more regions, more players, and eventually iOS support will be added. Lastly, a pre-registration page will be posted with sign-ups on the beta tests.
Just like the PC and console versions of Apex Legends, its mobile counterpart will be free-to-play and won’t include any paid items that give you a gameplay advantage. It will include cosmetic items, Battle Passes, and unlockables just like the PC and console versions, but will not include cross-play with the PC and console versions.
