Apex Legends is coming to mobile phones but is still in early development. Herse what you need to know about the mobile release and if your phone is compatible.
Can My Phone Play Apex Legends Mobile?
Respawn Entertainment has already optimized the game for Nintendo Switch, and mobile phones will be the next platform the battle royale comes to.
Apex Legends: Mobile was announced in Apr. 2021. Closed Beta was announced in Jul. 2021 and is available only in India, Malaysia and the Philippines.
Respawn Entertainment has yet to release beta access for iOS or beta access for other countries. For now, Beta access will only be available for Android users in specific countries
According to the official Apex Legends site, "As we continue with testing, we’ll expand the size of these tests, add new regions, and implement iOS support. When we’re ready to go broader, we’ll launch a page that allows you to pre-register for the game and sign up for news about the betas."
Respawn will keep mobile players together, and will not feature cross-platform play. Respawn is optimizing Apex Legends: Mobile specifically for Mobile usage, and will feature Battle Passes, and collectible cosmetics exclusively for mobile players.
In addition, the gameplay will be slightly different until the full release of the game. It will only feature maps like World's Edge and some of the original Legends at the moment.
Apex Legends: Mobile will remain free-to-play and fans can pre-register for Apex Legends: Mobile in the Android Google Play Store.
Once beta access opens up to more countries, fans may have the chance to play in the beta access on a first-come first-serve basis once it is announced. Respawn states, "Beta slots are limited, so those who pre-register aren’t guaranteed to get in right away, but you’ll certainly make it into a later release."
