Apex Legends Mobile, the popular PC-based battle royale shooting game, is now available on Android and iOS smartphones with whole new exciting game features. For months, Apex Legends Mobile had been in beta testing. Now, players will be able to play the game on their mobile phones starting today.
Pre-registrants for Apex Legends Mobile on Android and iOS will also receive special in-game bonuses. The Bloodhound banner frame, Bloodhound banner posture, Founder’s badge, R99 Epic skin, and more are among them.
How to download Apex Legends Mobile and the system requirements
If you have already pre-registered, Apex Legends Mobile may have been downloaded from the Play Store to your device automatically overnight. Once installed you’ll need to complete a fairly lengthy tutorial before you can drop into the eponymous Season 1 map “World’s End.” There is even a mobile-exclusive legend “Fade” to unlock.
Players on Android can find Apex Legends Mobile by searching for it on the Google Play Store. Be aware that there is only one official game, which is sold by Electronic Arts, so be wary of imitations.
Apex Legends Mobile requires a phone with at least 2GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and a Snapdragon 435/ Hisilicon Kirin 650/ Mediatek Helio P20/ Exynos 7420-compatible chipset.
Apex Legends Mobile is also available on the App Store for iOS. The game will be available on iPhones with iOS 11 or later with the Apple A9 processor.
What’s new in Apex Legends Mobile?
Fade, a new mobile-exclusive Legend with unique skills like the other characters in the game, joins the game. Fade now has the passive ability Slipstream, which gives him a speed boost at the end of a slide, as well as the tactical ability Flashback, which allows him to teleport back in time. Fade’s ultimate ability is Phase Chamber, which lets him to toss an explosive core that disables everyone within a certain radius from dealing or receiving damage. Fade is available at Tier 25.
In Arena mode, there’s also a new Overflow map and new weaponry including the heatshield, 30-30 marksman rifle, and 4x-10x thermal imaging optic scope. Other features include team-fill (which automatically fills a new player in-game in team Deathmatch mode).
Apex Legends’ battle pass will be organised into seasons, similar to how Battlegrounds Mobile India and Call of Duty: Mobile feature in-game battle passes that reward players for completing daily missions with skins and emotes.
The game has been tuned to better suit mobile gameplay with on-screen controls that are very reminiscent of the immensely popular Call of Duty: Mobile franchise. The control scheme can be altered to suit your particular playstyle with automated loot pickups helping speed up this sometimes finicky process on PC and console.
