It has been three years since Respawn Entertainment first talked about bringing Apex Legends to mobile. Just recently, Apex Legends Mobile officially soft-launched, allowing players in select countries to download and play the game. It'll be a while longer before the game is available globally though, with Respawn aiming for a full launch in the Summer.
Currently, Apex Legends Mobile is open for pre-registration in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, and Colombia. Play tests are taking place on Android, in part due to it being easier to host large-scale playable betas on Android, compared to iOS and Apple's Test Flight program.
Respawn Entertainment is now aiming for a full launch for Apex Legends Mobile “this summer”, with a little help from Tencent's teams at Lightspeed & Quantum Studios.
Just like the PC and console versions, Apex Legends Mobile will be free to play, offering a full battle royale experience, with monetisation primarily coming through the seasonal battle pass.

KitGuru says: While PUBG and Fortnite had relatively quick releases on mobile, it has taken a while for Apex Legends to catch up. Will you be trying Apex Legends on iOS or Android once it finally arrives?
