Apex Legends–the popular PC-based battle royale shooting game–  is now available to play in a brand new avatar on Android and iOS smartphones. Apex Legends Mobile had been in beta testing for months. Starting today, players will be finally able to play the game on their mobile phones. Those who pre-registered for Apex Legends Mobile on Android and iOS will also get exclusive in-game rewards. These include the Bloodhound banner frame, the Bloodhound banner pose, the Founder’s badge, an R99 Epic skin and more.

System requirements and how to get Apex Legends Mobile

On Android, players can simply go to the Google Play Store and search for Apex Legends Mobile to find the game. Note that there is just one official game and it is offered by EA (Electronic Arts), so beware of any fakes.

Apex Legends Mobile only supports phones with at least 2GB RAM, 4GB storage and a chipset equivalent or higher than the Snapdragon 435/ Hisilicon Kirin 650/ Mediatek Helio P20/ Exynos 7420.

Similarly, on iOS, you can find Apex Legends Mobile on the App Store. The game will be available to phones running iOS 11 and above with the Apple A9 chipset and above.

Apex Legends Mobile now available in India

The much-anticipated free-to-play battle royale shooter Apex Legends Mobile has finally arrived in India. After months of beta testing and a soft launch in a few regions, Respawn Entertainment today released the game on the Google Play Store and App Store. As per the creators of Apex Legends, the mobile version is completely different from what we have seen on the PC, made especially for mobile.
Apex Legends Mobile is now available for everyone to download through the Play Store on Android and App Store on iOS. Interested players can go ahead and install the game through their respective app stores. However, pre-registered players for the game will be entitled to rewards, including Founder’s Badge, R99 Epic skin, Bloodhound banner pose, and more.

Also, note that there is no crossplay available between the PC and mobile version of Apex Legends since the mobile version is a different game. So, if you are playing the Apex Legends on your Android or iOS smartphone, you won’t be able to play with your friends playing the game on their PC. But, the crossplay between Android and iOS is available.

Respawn Entertainment has mentioned some minimum hardware requirements for the mobile devices to run the Apex Legends Mobile.

Suppose you want to play the game on an Android smartphone. In that case, you need to have a smartphone at least powered by the Snapdragon 435/HiSilicon Kirin 650/Mediatek Helio P20/Exynos 7420 and running Android 6 or above. Further, your Android smartphone should have a minimum of 4GB of free internal storage and at least 2GB of RAM.
Meanwhile, if you want to play it on an iPhone, then make sure you have an iPhone 6S or later, and it is running minimum on iOS 11. Also, you would need 4GB of free internal storage and 2GB of RAM on your iPhone.

The Apex Legends Mobile brings a new legend Fade, with a passive ability of Slipstream and Flashback being his tactical ability. Fade’s ultimate ability is Phase Chamber, which lets him activate core that explodes, temporarily saving everyone in its radius from any damage.

Apart from a new legend, the Apex Legends Mobile comes with the new Overflow map in Arena mode and Advanced Training Level, allowing players to practice advanced fighting techniques. And there is a team fill mode, which auto-fills a new teammate in an active deathmatch game if a player leaves in the middle of the game. Furthermore, the mobile version of the game comes with Heatshields, 30-30 Marksman rifle, and 4x-10x thermal imaging optic scope.

Apex Legends Mobile First Impressions: Time to ditch Garena Free Fire Max, BGMI

Apex Legends Mobile is now out for players on Android and iOS starting today. The game is based on Apex Legends on PC and Console.

Apex Legends Mobile is now live on both Android and iOS devices and is free to play.

Apex Legends Mobile is finally here! After months of wait, the mobile port of the popular battle royale game on PC and console is here, and it seems to be off a good start. Developers by Lightspeed & Quantum Studios and Respawn Entertainment, the game brings the same basic experience as the Apex Legends title on PC but with all the optimizations to make it “mobile-friendly”. And now that it is here and ready to download, we have it a try and here is everything we have found about it so far.

Apex Legends Mobile joins the ranks of BGMI, Garena Free Fire Max, New State Mobile, and Call of Duty: Mobile as a free-to-play online multiplayer game. It is exactly a replica of the 2019 release Apex Legends on PC but with all the modes you must have seen on the PC version. Other than the Battle Royale mode, the game also brings the TDM mode as well as 3v3 Arena mode, along with most of the Legends and weapons.

We tried the game on Android on a Xiaomi 12 Pro, and on iOS with the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The early release of the game has room for refinement, which is why you may not have the most polished experiences.

Apex Legends Mobile Gameplay: What’s different

As someone who hasn’t had much experience with the PC version of the game, Apex Legends Mobile comes across a s completely refreshing take on the usual Battle Royale games that have served us for years. The underlying concept is the same behind this one — you participate in a multiplayer match wherein your squad has to be the last one standing. And to do that, you will have weapons at your disposal along with the Legends (the characters) and their special abilities. These Legends include Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Wraith, Octane, Bangalore, Caustic, Mirage, Pathfinder and fade. You might need some time to learn the terminologies but the core concept remains the same. Share Via

Once you join a squad for the Battle Royale match, your duty remains similar — stay inside the ring, and as it shrinks, the fight becomes tighter. While this happens, you have to look out for yourself and you squamates. Depending on the character phone, you can either fight your way to the victory, or help your squad go along. You pick up weapons inside the building, or from crates, and if you eliminate an enemy, you can help yourself with their kit.

Additionally, Apex Legends Mobile also lets you choose your POV — you can either have the proper First Person View or the Third-person view, The Third person view is easier on the yes but takes away the fin of the game; it is the FPP mode that offers the most thrills.

While in combat, it is easy to switch weapon load-outs, and even tuck them away to sprint faster. Spot and enemy and you have to aim and hit them — if the hit is successful, you score points. If you die in the BR mode, you will need to wait for your squamate to revive, who needs to collect your tag and reach the nearest respawn point. When logging off or the first time, a tutorial is there to explain everything. Share Via

Health is protected by a shield, which needs to be fortified after getting enemy hits. If the shield is down, you need to run for your life. You can have medkits to replenish yourself or recharge the health shield. Some Legends can also summon Care packages to get their own supply of protection.

The combat is easy and believable, with some of the familiar Apex Legends moves. From sniper rifles to laser guns, there’s a lot of stuff to play with. You cannot move around the maps in vehicles, unlike some other BR games — you are left with foot movements.

Now there’s a TDM mode and a 3V3 mode, both of which are currently out of reach — they will unlock after reaching a certain level. There’s a Free Practice mode to hone you skills and get accustomed to the game. Share Via

When you are not playing, you can get several custom skins and weapons to amp up your experience. There’s also a Battle Pass available that players can invest in to gain additional rewards.

Apex Legends Mobile Graphics: Is it console quality?

Umm, No! But it is on par with Call of Duty: Mobile, which has the best-looking visual of any mobile multiplayer game. On high-end smartphones such as the iPhone 13 Pro Max and the Xiaomi 12 Pro, the game looks great, especially with its colorful worlds and superb special effects. Share Via

New players will find the copious use of lasers, neon lights, and more interesting to look at. The game is also optimised to run on older phones, which is why you can dial down the graphics and frame rates to obtain better performance.

Apex Legends Mobile First Impressions

Apex Legends Mobile comes in at a time when the market for mobile multiplayer games is full of the same stale options, with everyone wanting to be PUBG Mobile. With new gameplay concept and some interesting characters to play, Apex Legends Mobile seems like a breath of fresh air, wherein there is a lot to enjoy. It is more than just a simple PC port, and every parameter has been designed keeping the mobile gamers in mind.

Battle Royale fans will be familiar with the gameplay style but the presentation and execution seem enjoyable — at least for someone who gave up on the conventional Battle Royale games years ago. Will this take the mobile gaming market by storm? That is something only time can tell.

New Delhi: Apex Legends Mobile is now available to download for both Android and iOS users.

Apex Legends Mobile: Download size

At launch, the overall download size of Apex Legends Mobile is 2.70GB. Given the game’s high-quality graphics and other mechanics, the mammoth download size comes as no surprise.

All you need to ensure is that the game you are downloading is developed by Electronic Arts. Avoid fake versions.

Apex Legends Mobile: System requirements

Just like other popular battle royale titles such as Call of Duty: Mobile and Battlegrounds Mobile India, Apex Legends Mobile will also follow a season format for its battle pass.

Apex Legend is now available on mobile, here’s how to download on the Google Play Store

Apex Legends Mobile was initially only available in limited beta in the India and Philippines, however Respawn and EA stated that more areas would be included in the future.

Download Now

Previously, you could play Apex Legends on your phone via other services, but now you can play a PC version rather than a mobile port in that instance. This is a dedicated port with on-screen controls and additional features for smaller televisions.

Apex Legends Mobile might have been downloaded from the Play Store to your device automatically overnight if you had already pre-registered. After installing the game, you’ll have to go through a long tutorial before entering the Season 1 eponymous map, “World’s End.” There’s also a mobile-only tale to unlock called “Fade.”

You will also receive a bunch of exclusive in-game prizes if you have pre-registered for The Apex Legends Mobile. The Founder’s badge, the Bloodhound banner pose and frame, an R99 Epic skin, and many more are among them.

With on-screen controls that are similar to the hugely popular Call of Duty, the game has been adjusted to better suit mobile gameplay. On PC and console, the control scheme may be tweaked to fit your preferences, and automated loot picks assist speed up this sometimes delicate procedure.

There are a few minimal device specifications that must be met in order to play Apex Legends Mobile at its best. To get started, you’ll need an Exynos 7420 or Helio P20 processor, Snapdragon 435, Kirin 650, storage space of 4GB, RAM of 2GB, and in addition to that, your Mobile should be running Android 6 or higher version.

We’ve known since April 2021 that Apex Legends would be going mobile, with the release date finally revealed last week, set for May 17th. Well, that’s today, and so the game is officially available. While it took its time coming, now that Apex Legends Mobile is here, it’s time to see exactly how the mobile offering stacks up to its console and PC brethren.

The above launch trailer offers a quick glimpse of Apex Legend Mobile in action, and since the mobile version exists on its own base, it offers unique content, events, and characters, including a new playable character named Fade. This means there is no cross-play with consoles and PC, as the mobile version’s multiplayer only works across Android and iOS. This means bots will very much be a thing to keep wait times down (though they are obvious and walk right up to you). So far, the balance between bots and real players seems okay, especially if you’re just learning the ropes, as the mobile game is just as complicated as the core title on PC and consoles, with buttons all over the screen, making for a mess of a UI.ANDROIDPOLICE VIDEO OF THE DAY2 Images

This brings me to the controls, as Apex Legends isn’t known for its ease of use. Out of all of the battle royale games out there, Apex Legends is more for the hardcore, where precise timing and proper utilization of weapons and skills is a tricky balance to find, and on a small screen with tiny text and touch controls that force your thumbs to cover that text, things are even more complicated, and the spacing between buttons is awful. Worse yet, the game shows that it supports physical controllers in the settings, and yet none of my Android-specific controllers work, over bluetooth or USB-C, nada (though there are reports only Xbox and PlayStation controllers are supported).

Now, as far as the graphics are concerned, environments look okay on the default settings with a bit of pop in, and you can crank things up to ExtremeHD (ranging from Smooth, Normal, HD, UltraHD, and ExtremeHD), and you can even choose from a few different framerate settings, though on my ROG 5 things cap out at 60FPS. The game’s menus are all capped at 30FPS, which should help to conserve battery.

Sadly my experience is off to a rough start. Not only are you forced into an overly-long tutorial, but I’ve also run into several bugs. Since I first installed the title this morning, I loaded into a map that had no land, resulting in death, and I was then banned for 45 seconds from being able to join a new match. Then the game glitched and switched to Chinese with no way to get back as I was also tossed back to repeat the tutorial I had just completed. I then reinstalled the game from scratch, got my English settings back, and jumped into a match. I was then unable to pick up a single weapon in the match and did not take any damage when shot, eventually dying from the ring once I got stuck on the ground and couldn’t move.

While this hasn’t been the experience for a few of my fellow writers here at AP, where things went off for them without a hitch, I have to say this soured me on the game more than the complicated touch controls. So keep in mind things might not be as polished as one would expect from a stable global release, where experiences may differ.2 Images

Still, if you’re brave enough to face a few bugs and would like to take a look for yourself to make up your own mind, you can grab the install for Apex Legends Mobile through the Play Store widget below. Oh, and if you’re interested in some deeper thoughts that explore the game in full, expect hands-on coverage soon. Until then, have fun trudging through the forced tutorial as you get to grips with the controls.
