Apex Legends Mobile is now available to download on the Google Play Store
Originally, Apex Legends Mobile was launched in limited betas in the Philippines and India, but EA and Respawn confirmed that more regions would gain access over time. Previous workarounds to play Apex Legends on your smartphone utilized services like GeForce Now, in that instance, you’re playing a PC version of the game rather than a mobile port. This is a direct port fully tailored for smaller displays including on-screen controls and extra enhancements.
If you have already pre-registered, Apex Legends Mobile may have been downloaded from the Play Store to your device automatically overnight. Once installed you’ll need to complete a fairly lengthy tutorial before you can drop into the eponymous Season 1 map “World’s End.” There is even a mobile-exclusive legend “Fade” to unlock.
Another bonus is that if you have pre-registered for Apex Legends Mobile, you will also get a slew of exclusive in-game rewards. These include the Bloodhound banner frame, the Bloodhound banner pose, the Founder’s badge, an R99 Epic skin, plus more.
The game has been tuned to better suit mobile gameplay with on-screen controls that are very reminiscent of the immensely popular Call of Duty: Mobile franchise. The control scheme can be altered to suit your particular playstyle with automated loot pickups helping speed up this sometimes finicky process on PC and console.
