Although Season 13 of Apex Legends has just released, it appears Respawn Entertainment isn't settling down anytime soon as the official release date for Apex Legends Mobile is reportedly set in stone for next week.

As announced by Respawn on May 2, Apex Legends Mobile was set to launch sometime in May, with players on Android and iOS devices having been invited to pre-register in order to be ready to drop in on day one. Now, it appears the countdown is just about on.

According to an eXputer report made by prominent gaming insider Tom Henderson on Tuesday, Apex Legends Mobile is set to release for Android and iOS on Tuesday, May 17, with an official announcement coming this week.

Additionally, the game will reportedly be dropping with an all-new Legend exclusive to mobile players.

At launch, Apex Legends Mobile is set to have a roster of 10 characters, with nine coming directly from the original title — Bloodhound, Bangalore, Mirage, Octane, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Pathfinder, Wraith and Caustic.

Nicknamed the "Phasing Punisher," Fade will reportedly be the 10th and final Legend playable in Apex Legends Mobile with the following kit:

  • Slipstream (Passive): You can gain a short movement speed boost at the end of the slide
  • Flash Back (Tactical): Go back to where you were a while ago from the Void
  • Phase Chamber (Ultimate): Release a phase cage to send all Legends within range into the Void

According to Henderson, Fade is "almost definitely human" and dons red and silver armor with gold highlights and a mask that resembles "a skull to some degree."
