Apex Legends Mobile beta announced
Apex Legends is one of the top battle royale games globally, with players across multiple platforms able to enjoy all of the title’s action. Now, it has been confirmed that mobile players will soon be able to join in on the fun with upcoming beta tests.
The adrenaline-fueled action of Respawn’s first-person shooter has been available for players on consoles and PC but has been missing from the popular world of mobile gaming.
With such a large untapped community waiting for their chance to step into Respawn Entertainment’s popular title, it was not surprising to see the developer announce that a mobile version of Apex Legends would arrive at some point.
Apex Legends Mobile Beta
April 19, 2021, saw major announcements be made for the game, such as the reveal of a new character and a huge development in the timeline for the game’s release on its newest platform with the official announcement of upcoming beta tests for Apex Legends Mobile.
These tests will begin to roll out during Spring 2021, with a series of smaller closed tests in India and the Philippines, and will only be available on Android devices. Over time the tests will expand in size, cover more regions, and have iOS support.
Respawn also confirmed in the announcement that this upcoming version of the battle royale game will be free-to-play and specially designed for touchscreens.
Due to this version being designed specifically for touchscreens, there will be no cross-play with other platforms during the tests or following its official release.
A whole new community of players will now have the chance to experience everything that the high-profile battle royale game has to offer.
In contrast, veteran players will be able to continue their adventures on the go wherever they may find themselves in the future.
These beta tests will also undoubtedly be a great opportunity for the community to help Respawn Entertainment weed out any major bugs like the hip-fire glitch that is currently causing headaches for players on console and PC.
