Apex Legends Mobile will start launching in Australia, New Zealand and other countries this month
There’s been talk for a while of a dedicated mobile version of Apex Legends, and now it looks like the game could finally be ready to launch this year, after a limited regional release.
According to the official website, Apex Legends Mobile will be available for Android and iOS in 10 countries this spring: Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, and Colombia. In fact, pre-registration is already open, but Respawn has yet to share an exact date.
As for when the rest of the world can play it, Respawn explains that this limited release is ultimately another phase of testing and “We’ll share updates on the global launch once we’ve made informed decisions following the limited regional launch.”
The mobile launch will also have limited content. Only nine characters – Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Wraith, Bangalore, Octane, Mirage, Pathfinder, and Caustic – will be playable, and Respawn has yet to share which modes will be available. Additionally, there will be no cross-play with the PC or console versions.
Even though there’s still a long wait between the limited release and the actual global launch, there’s no shortage of content for Apex Legends players at the moment. Season 12 is still fresh, having launched only a few weeks ago, adding a new limited game mode, an Olympus map update, and a new playable character, Mad Maggie.
