The beta will begin on Android phones only, but iOS support is planned. Once the tests are “ready to go broader,” EA will launch a page that allows players to pre-register for the game and sign up for further updates.
Since Apex Legends Mobile is being designed as a new game, it will not feature cross-play with other versions of the game, but it will be free-to-play. It will also have separate Battle Passes, collectible cosmetics, and unlockables unique from other versions.
EA CEO Andrew Wilson previously discussed at an EA Fireside Chat that Apex Legends Mobile was being planned for a soft launch in 2020, and while it’s a bit delayed, Apex Legends fans will soon have a new way to play the battle royale.
EA also confirmed that Apex Legends Mobile’s development is lead by a dedicated team at Respawn in collaboration with “the established Apex Legends team and other partners.”
This news follows the announcement of a new Apex Legends hero, Valkyrie, who is the daughter of a Titanfall pilot.
