When is Apex Legends coming to mobile?
We still don’t have an exact answer, but we’re getting closer.
Respawn announced the first limited Apex Legends mobile testing rollouts starting sometime in spring 2021 for Android and, later, iOS devices.
The first Apex Legends mobile rollouts will be in the Philippines and India.
Respawn hasn’t yet said where or when later rollouts will take place, though the full release will likely be sometime later in the year.
These early Apex mobile rollouts are closed betas.
Respawn will increase the size and number of features as they progress.
Apex Legends mobile pre-register is not yet open, but we’ll update once it goes live.
Apex Legends mobile is playable entirely by touch, with “streamlined controls and thoughtful optimizations that result in the most advanced battle royale combat available on a phone.”
There’s no word yet when Apex Legends mobile will release anywhere, though beta tests will start launching later in spring in the U.K., Europe, and U.S.
Apex Legends mobile is built from the ground up specifically for mobile, and Respawn is saying they won’t implement crossplay because of that.

Regardless, it's still free to play, just like the PC/console version
