The critically acclaimed battle royale that acts as a spiritual successor to the hugely underrated Titanfall 2 is going to make its way to mobile phones. At a time when just about every major game has some sort of mobile port, it's a smart move to make. We've seen Fortnite land on smartphones, along with PUBG, Call of Duty, and even Genshin Impact (to name a few). Now that Apex Legends is going mobile, here are things you need to know like its release date, crossplay, beta access, and more.
There are no exact release date yet for Apex Legends Mobile. However, there have been vague reports and leaks pointing to the third quarter of 2022 (July-September) or the end of May. Take these with a grain of salt as nothing has been confirmed by EA or Respawn Entertainment.
The game is currently in closed beta testing. Unfortunately, it seems limited to the following countries:
There are plans to roll out the beta to more regions as testing continues. You will need to check this and stay up to date with the game's page on the Google Play Store.
Unfortunately, Apex Legends Mobile is its own game. So, it will not have cross-play functionality with players on all other available platforms. It's still the same free game we enjoy on console or PC, but as it will have obvious constraints, it won't be able to match current versions on other platforms.
Currently, as the game is in closed beta, it is limited to Android. That is why its availability is only for Play Store. You'll need Android 6.0 or higher to run the game, so keep that in mind.
The game goes possibly have iOS support as the days draw closer to its actual release.
Apex Legends is currently available on Xbox One and Series S/X, PlayStation 4 and 5, Nintendo Switch and PC.
