Apex Legends Mobile: The Apex Legends gaming community has shown interest in the arrival of a Mobile Gaming version of the beloved battle royale video game, and as smartphones continue to improve, mobile games become more viable and many of the major developers have focused on creating versions of their games for portable devices.
Something that we find quite curious is that some games have made the leap to mobile devices ahead of time, such as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and the Call of Duty franchise have had great success.
Apex Legends Mobile Release Date
In October 2019, EA revealed that a mobile version of Apex Legends would launch in the fiscal year 2022, which begins in October
However, this release window has since been adjusted. The mobile release date of Apex Legends is set for the third quarter of 2021, which could be from the beginning of July to the end of September.
However, it would still be only in closed beta. On February 1, 2022, Respawn announced that pre-registration was finally available for Apex Legends Mobile on the Google Play Store, with a “soft release”
How to Sign Up for Mobile Beta
The first tests start only available on Android devices. Respawn said, “As we continue testing, we will expand the size of these tests, add new regions, and roll out iOS support.” When we’re ready to go further, we’ll launch a page that will allow you to pre-register for the game and subscribe to receive news about the betas.”
Respawn Entertainment is taking a hands-on approach when it comes to developing the mobile version, according to Apex game director Chad Grenier. “We’ve created a dedicated team here at Respawn filled with mobile game development experts to lead the creation of Apex Legends Mobile,” Grenier said.
“But it’s a collaborative effort with our established Apex Legends team and other partners.” According to an earlier report by IGN India, Tencent is part of the development. Having ported Call of Duty to portable devices, the Chinese company already has a wealth of experience in the field.
During the first round of beta testing, Apex Legends Mobile will only be available on Android devices, but Grenier said that as testing expands and approaches a full version, support for iOS will also be added.
“The first of these [betas] begins in the spring of 2021 and will only be available on Android devices,” the Apex director wrote. “As we continue testing, we will expand the size of these tests, add new regions, and roll out iOS support.”
This is something we already have a solid answer about, and it’s no, Apex Legends Mobile won’t be compatible with PC or console, so it’s guaranteed that it will only play against other mobile players.
Respawn says, “Apex Legends Mobile is specially designed for touchscreens, with simplified controls and thoughtful optimizations that result in the most advanced Battle Royale combat available on a phone.”
