Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royale games out there. Released in February 2019, the game is developed by Respawn Entertainment. During the period of more than two years, the developers made various changes and improvements to it, something that helped with making it popular. And now, the game is finally coming to mobile. Today, we will talk about everything we know about Apex Legends mobile so far.
Mobile gaming has become immensely popular in recent years. Most of this is thanks to PUBG Mobile, which is currently the most popular mobile game in the world. Call of Duty also released a mobile game some time ago, which also managed to reach the top charts. And now, their direct competitor, Apex Legends is also joining the platform.
Apex Legends Mobile Regional Beta
Apex Legends mobile will arrive on both Android and iOS devices. Respawn Entertainment mentioned that the first regional beta tests for the mobile will being later this month, and closed betas will only allow a few thousand players from India and the Philippines. Through the passage of time, the beta will expand to more regions. But the thing which you need to keep in mind is that the beta will be available only on Android devices. The developers claimed that they will add iOS support as the testing expands and they get closer to the full release.
Will It Feature Cross-Play?
A lot of you will be wondering whether Apex Legends mobile is going to feature cross-play or not. Well, the answer is, no. This is because the mobile game is designed in a different way, and there is no way mobile players will be able to compete against those who are playing on PC or consoles. Therefore, you will only need to worry about playing against mobile players.
How To Register For the Beta
If you’re someone who lives in India or the Philippines, then you can pre-register for the Apex Legends mobile beta. The first test will begin during Spring 2021. What you need to do is open the Google Play App on your phone and type Apex Legends in the search bar. Then, click Pre-Register so that you can get notified when the test begins.

Apex Legends mobile was confirmed by Respawn Entertainment months ago, but they failed to provide any release date at that time. The developers only mentioned that the mobile version will arrive in the 2022 fiscal year. But now, it has been confirmed that Apex Legends mobile will get released in the third quarter of 2021. This means that you’ll get to see it between July and September. Apex Legends is also gearing up for a brand new season called Legacy.
