‘Apex Legends Mobile’ release date, latest news and everything we know

Here’s when Apex Legends Mobile is set to launch worldwide

Apex Legends Mobile takes the high-paced action of the base game and adds a unique twist. In doing so, it creates a shooter experience that is built for mobile devices, with slight tweaks to make the most of the touchscreen controls. It has its own lineup of Legends, taken from the base game, and has started rolling out in certain territories.

The launch of Apex Legends Mobile began earlier this year, rolling out slowly across certain countries in a staggered fashion. Because of this, it’s been somewhat difficult to keep track of when you’ll actually be able to play the full game. In the UK and the US, we now finally have a release date.

To help make sure you stay up to date with all things Apex Legends Mobile, including the release date, trailers and crossplay functionality, we’ve put together this guide. We’ll take a look at the lineup of Legends available at launch, and list where the game is currently live in open beta.

Is it free-to-play?

Just like the main version of Apex Legends, Apex Legends Mobile will be free-to-play at launch. You’ll be able to spend money on things like cosmetics and battle passes. Apex Legends generally restricts offering any paid content that affects gameplay, and this seems to be the case for the Mobile version also.

Is there crossplay with PC?

Apex Legends Mobile does not feature crossplay with the other versions of the game. This is because it is technically a different game to the one found on PC and consoles, with mobile-first gameplay design. This makes it unlikely that the game will ever feature crossplay with other, non-mobile versions.
