It was less than a month ago when it was announced that the wildly popular Apex Legends would be mobile. While many were salivating at the idea of being able to play their favorite game on iOS and Android devices, the biggest question at the time was when this would actually happen. Luckily for us we don’t have to wait long.
today the Apex Legends Mobile Twitter account has officially announced that the new game will be released on mobile platforms this month. Unfortunately it won’t be soon as the team indicates it will be by the second half. Apex Legends was originally released in early 2019 and is being made available for Windows, Xbox and PlayStation. Due to its wild popularity, the game finally made its way to the Nintendo Switch in March 2021.
Legends change the game. But they can’t do it without you.

While the mobile version of the game looks pretty good, it will be slightly different from its PC and console counterparts. To be clear, this is not the same experience as on console and PC. The game takes place in the same world but has different modes and different elements. beyond that, Apex Legends Mobile will be the first time players will be able to interact with the game via touchscreen controls. For a game that relies on accuracy, this can become a make-or-break situation if the controls are not fine-tuned.

As for the graphics, they look very good but will differ depending on your device. What should come as no surprise is that the game will still be free to play and as somewhat expected (albeit disappointing). cross play will not be available. If you haven’t already done so, you will of course want to register in advance. Pre-registration is currently open for Android through the Google Play Store. You can also click on the link below. Those with iOS will want to head over to the pre-registration page to be notified when it’s available for their device. Pre-registering will not only give you access to the game as soon as it launches, but you will also get in-game pre-registration rewards.
