Respawn Entertainment is finally bringing their battle royale experience over to mobile. Here’s everything you need to know about Apex Legends Mobile, including the release date, gameplay, and maps.
Apex Legends has been on consoles and PC for three years now, as the game is about to celebrate its anniversary with Season 12’s Collection Event.
Apex Legends is now in Season 12, and although this season has had a lot to offer, players are still looking forward to future seasons.
With that being said, Respawn Entertainment has decided to bring the battle royale to the mobile gaming community, with some players getting a chance to play the game early through the limited regional launch.
Does Apex Legends Mobile have a release date?
Unfortunately, there is currently no official release date for Apex Legends Mobile, but the game will have a limited regional launch going out the week of February 28, 2022.
This limited regional launch will obviously only be available in certain areas of the world, which you can find out through our piece on every region the Apex Legends Mobile app is available in.
Although we have no confirmation or hints as to when it will be released, some are suggesting that we could be seeing the official launch in April 2022 after a recent trailer was released for the game, which may have hinted at Blisk’s future arrival.
Apex Legends Mobile Limited Regional Launch
Respawn ran small Closed Beta tests of the Mobile game over 2021, starting in India and expanding to places like Egypt and Columbia.
Now, in February 2022, Respawn have announced that the game is officially getting a Limited Regional Launch, which will only be available for certain regions.
Players can register for the Limited Regional Launch now on the Google Play store as long as they are in one of the ten regions it will be available in.
Apex Legends Mobile gameplay
Apex Legends Mobile’s gameplay will be inherently similar to the battle royale players know and love, featuring all of the same weapons and mechanics.
From little things like unlimited ammo in the Firing Range to detailed stats for every weapon, there are some differences that the developers have explicitly implemented for the Mobile version that have been spotted in the beta and may stay for launch.
For starters, players will be selecting from a smaller pool of the main game’s Legends. The Closed Beta currently only has Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Wraith, Bangalore, Caustic, Octane, Mirage, and Pathfinder.
Many have spotted Revenant in one of Mobile’s promotional images, so perhaps more Legends will release as the beta tests go on.
A third-person perspective is another feature only available in Mobile, apart from an easter egg players can activate in the PC and console version’s Firing Range.
In the Mobile version, players can switch between third and first-person, depending on their preference. When in third-person, players will get a better view of what’s around them, and the camera will switch back to first when aiming down sights.
Apex Legends Mobile maps
In the Closed beta, the only battle royale map that was available was World’s Edge. This could change come release, and we may see Kings Canyon and Olympus on mobile at some point, but as far as we know, it’s just World’s Edge for now.
There are some other maps available for players, such as the Arenas map from the main game Artillery. This map is available in Arenas for Apex Legends Mobile and in the Team Deathmatch mode that is making its way onto PC and console through Season 12 LTM “Control.”
Dataminers have also found some exclusive maps in the files for Apex Legends Mobile, but once again, we’ll probably get more information on these when the full game is launched and revealed.
As more information is released about Apex Legends Mobile, we’ll make sure to update this article, so come back in the future for more news. For now, check out the best audio settings for Apex Legends.
