With the announcement of Apex Legends Mobile, the Titanfall-adjacent battle royale will soon be available on every platform, including your phone.
The news comes from a blog post on the Apex Legends website, where Chad Grenier, Game Director for Apex Legends, reports this new version of the battle royal shooter is “specially designed for touchscreens, with streamlined controls and thoughtful optimizations that result in the most advanced battle royale combat available on a phone. It’s a new version of Apex Legends, but it’s true to the original.”
Apex Legends will finally join its other battle royale comrades on mobile platforms, as it once again finds itself against the likes of Fortnite and Call of Duty Mobile. The first beta tests will be on a regional basis, starting this month in India and the Philippines. As of this writing, there is no word on when betas for other regions might begin.
The official FAQ also confirms that Apex Legends Mobile will be free to play, though it will not feature cross-play with consoles and PC due to its development focus for mobile platforms.
With Apex Legends recent arrival on Nintendo Switch and now the announcement of a mobile version, it’s clear how much Apex Legends has grown in its two years since launch. Season 9 is set to begin on May 4, and Respawn just revealed Valkyrie, the game’s newest Legend.
