If you are someone who has been eagerly waiting to play Apex Legends on your mobile phone, then the wait is over for you as you will soon be able to do so, according to the announcement of Apex Legends Mobile’s release date.
Respawn Entertainment has stated that this mobile adaption of the battle royale game will be released this month, but no specific date has been established. This eventual rollout comes after a series of the previous testing, which was initially confined to a few places before progressively extending to other areas in preparation for the full release. While we still don’t have an exact release date for Apex Legends Mobile, we’re getting closer to making an announcement now that we’re in the release month. Respawn teased the Apex Legends Mobile release date in May during an Apex Legends Season 13 preview event before announcing it officially on Tuesday.
Unlike some other mobile games that launch first on Android before moving to iOS, Apex Legends Mobile will be available on both platforms at the same time. It’ll also have several features that are only available on the mobile edition of Apex, such as mobile-only maps, Legends, and more. Though there may be certain content specific to the Apex Legends mobile edition, this game will not support crossplay as Apex Legends does, therefore mobile users will only be able to play versus other mobile players.
The Legends from the main game will, nevertheless, be present. For example, during the regional previews, Respawn enabled Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Wraith, Bangalore, Octane, Mirage, Pathfinder, and Caustic for testing. During the Season 13 preview, when Apex Legends Mobile was discussed, design director Jordan Patz stated that the game will start with 10 Legends, with one more to be revealed later. Holosprays, banner frames, badges, a banner stance, and a new Pathfinder skin were among the incentives, all of which have been unlocked now that over 25 million pre-registrations have been collected.
Apex Legends Mobile will be available in May for Android and iOS smartphones.
