Two years after it’s been officially unveiled, Apex Legends Mobile is finally making its way to Android devices, publisher Electronic Arts announced today. Although the game is not yet ready for prime time, players from select countries will be given the chance to test one of the best battle royale games on their Android devices.Along with a new trailer for the PC/console game, EA revealed that beginning later this month, the first regional beta tests for Apex Legends Mobile will go live in select countries. Initially, just a few thousand players in India and the Philippines will be accepted into the beta program, but the beta will expand to additional countries throughout the year.
EA confirmed that the first closed beta tests in India and the Philippines will only be available on Android devices. However, as developers continue with testing, iOS support will be implemented, so stay tuned for more on this one.
Those who already play Apex Legends on PC or console should know that the mobile version doesn’t feature cross-play since it’s been built especially for smaller screens. On the bright side, Apex Legends Mobile, just like the original game, will be free-to-play and will never include paid items that would offer players a gameplay advantage.
Fans of the genre will be pleased to know that they will be able to unlock nice rewards via the Battle Pass, as well as collect cosmetics and unlockables unique from those available to PC and console players.
