There’s been a lot of hype around Apex Legends Mobile for the past year or so. Respawn Entertainment had been testing the mobile battle royale game in beta for months. And it recently announced the soft launch date for Apex Legends Mobile in select countries. The company, however, had to delay the regional launch by a week due to unforeseen reasons. Now, putting an end to the wait, Apex Legends Mobile has finally been released on iOS and Android devices as part of the soft launch today. Let’s take a look at the details.
Apex Legends Limited Regional Launch
When Respawn started testing Apex Legends Mobile last year, it launched the title in India and the Philippines in closed beta. However, the game’s limited regional launch does not include India. Instead, Apex Legends Mobile has been released in the following 10 countries at the moment:
- New Zealand
So, after an unforeseen delay, Apex Legends Mobile is now available on both Android and iOS today. To recall, it was earlier expected to release on February 28. The company plans to release Apex Mobile worldwide later this year. We expect these details to be out soon. The limited regional test will start on March 7 (4:00 PM PST) and continue until May 3, as per an official blog post.
Moreover, while we expected Apex Legends Mobile’s soft launch to come with two maps, the game is launching with only one – World’s Edge, which was widely tested in betas last year. You can also play other exciting game modes, including Team DeathMatch, Mini Battle Royale, 3v3 Arenas, and more. And if you are wondering, the following Legends are available to play at launch right now:
- Caustic (Unlocked at Battle Pass tier 25)
