Just under two years after it was first announced that Apex Legends would eventually make its way to mobile, the first-person battle royale game is finally here – almost. The “specially designed for touchscreens” shooter will be entering beta this Spring, with a full release later on.
Making the announcement, the game director of Apex Legends Chad Grenier said “Beginning later this month, we're kicking off the first regional beta tests for Apex Legends Mobile. This is a huge moment for our team. Two years ago we changed the landscape of the battle royale genre, and now we’re aiming to do it again on mobile.”
According to Grenier, this version of the popular battle royale shooter has been “designed for touchscreens, with streamlined controls and thoughtful optimizations that result in the most advanced battle royale combat available on a phone.”
Described as “true to the original,” Apex Legends Mobile will not feature cross play with PC or consoles, as this game is its own bespoke version. That being said, this mobile version has been developed by Respawn and so should feel familiar to PC and console players.
Apex Legends Mobile will launch with a regional beta this Spring in India and the Philippines, before expanding outward to other regions at a later date. The full blog post can be found HERE.
