While Apex Legends originally welcomed itself as a massively impressive battle royale at the time in 2019, the game went on towards expanding its reach to more platforms. We saw this with the Steam version followed by the Nintendo Switch port later on. However, the next move is for mobile users to welcome the game to smart phones very soon. Originally, Electronic Arts planned to ship the game to China for the mobile port.
But as time progressed, more and more regions were projected to receive the mobile release as well. With that a beta for the game went up in select regions for players to sign-up. Additionally, the mobile release also opened its gates to additional regions as well. The developer listed Argentina, Columbia, Mexico, Peru, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand as the next added territories.
In a new reveal on Thursday, Respawn Entertainment shares that pre-registration for the game is now live suggesting there will be a release very close. You can watch the pre-registration trailer in the video below:
“Apex Legends has been designed explicitly for mobile, with streamlined controls and thoughtful optimizations that result in one of the most advanced battle royale combat games available for a tablet or phone,” the description for the game reads on the official website. Additionally, users that pre-register will be pooling themselves for rewards that unlock when the version goes live. Currently, there is only pre-registration for the Google Play Store with App Store users left empty handed.
Even more to anticipate from Apex Legends potentially is the cross-progression update for the game. However, due to server vulnerabilities, the feature was left unprioritized to secure the integrity of online matches. It is to assume this update will be coming simultaneously for the smart phone version when it is ready to release. You can read the initial report by heading here.
