Apex Legends Mobile: soft launch on Android imminent, to follow on iOS

Apex Legends Mobile

EA and Respawn have announced that the soft launch of Apex Legends Mobile for Android devices will begin shortly in a small circle of countries, followed by the iOS version and the debut in the rest of the world.

During the latest Electronic Arts financial report, CEO Andrew Wilson has announced that the mobile version of the famous battle royale will begin shortly. A few hours later, with a post from the official Apex Legends account, the soft launch was confirmed in Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand, with pre-registrations available right now. . The launch in other countries of the world and of the version for iOS smartphones and tablets will take place at a later time, but we doubt that it will take a long time.

Announced in 2019, Apex Legends Mobile is an independent version of the game, therefore without cross-play and cross-progression with consoles and PC. The nature of the game will always be the same, so we're talking about a frenetic free-to-play battle royale with cosmetics, items and paid battle passes. Last year a limited number of beta testing took place and therefore now the game seems ready for the official debut.

Meanwhile Apex Legends prepares for the upcoming launch of Season 12: Rebellion. Just yesterday a gameplay trailer dedicated to the limited-time mode Control with nine-player squads was released.

Apex Legends Mobile is finally soft launching in a few countries on Google Play

Fans of EA’s popular battle royale Apex Legends have reason to celebrate as the long-awaited port is finally soft-launching in a few countries. Apex Legends’ mobile version has been talked about for years now and over the last year, numerous beta tests were held. It seems like Respawn and EA have squashed enough bugs and polished the game to soft launch it at least. While we don’t have a release date yet, all we know is a soft launch is coming sometime soon, and eligible players can pre-register for it. 

Here's a little refresher on what Apex Legends Mobile is all about. The battle royale is a spinoff of Respawn’s insanely popular Titanfall series and it launched in 2019 for consoles and PC, and later on Nintendo Switch. The basic gameplay is similar to most battle royales with squads of two or three dropping onto a massive world, where they must gather guns, armour, and other material quickly and become the last team standing out of 60 players.

What makes things different is the infusion of Titanfall mechanics into Apex Legends. With enhanced traversal, players can boost around on the map and there is massive room for verticality to combat, allowing for tough battles. Vehicles present throughout the map add another layer of craziness to the movement and combat.

The mobile version of Apex Legends has been built completely from scratch and while it will still be free-to-play, there will be no cross-play available. Expect to see certain differences between the mobile and other versions.

Currently, Apex Legends Mobile is soft launching for people living in Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Austria, and New Zealand. Users from these regions can pre-register for the game on Google Play. As of now, no information is available about an iOS version but we expect details on that and a global launch soon.
