'Apex Legends Mobile' is being built for specifically for mobile play, and won’t feature cross-play with its console and PC counterparts

Apex Legends, the popular battle royale shooter from developers Respawn Entertainment and publisher EA, is coming to Android and iOS devices some time in the future, Game Director Chad Grenier said in an announcement on Tuesday, April 20.

Along with this announcement, Respawn also revealed that they’ll be rolling out the game across the world in a series of tests, starting with closed regional betas in the Philippines and India later this month.

Players can actually pre-register now via the Google Play Store.

The first of these tests will only be on Android devices. But the developers promised that they’ll eventually expand testing to iOS and other regions in the world, leading up to the game’s launch.

Officially titled Apex Legends Mobile, the game stays true to the original’s gameplay and free-to-play business model, but is being designed specially for mobile.

Respawn said that they’ve assembled a dedicated team of mobile developers to lead the creation of the game alongside the core Apex Legends team.

Apex Legends Mobile, however, won’t feature cross-platform play with its console and PC counterparts.

Respawn added that it also features its own unique Battle Passes, collectible cosmetics, and unlockables, meaning players won’t be able to carry over their progress between platforms.

No exact release date was announced for the game. – Rappler.com
