Apex Legends Mobile is getting a soft launch today in 10 countries as Electronic Arts try to take its popular battle royale to mobile players. Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends has been a substantial free-to-play hit on the PC and consoles. Apex Legends Mobile is now available for players to test in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, and Colombia.
This limited regional launch will help the dev teams at Respawn, and Lightspeed & Quantum Studios test the matchmaking and progression systems, backend infrastructure, in-game commerce, and live regional operations capabilities. As development continues, Respawn will provide updates in the coming weeks and months for players outside the ten limited regional launch countries.
Players in participating countries can join the limited regional launch by downloading the game from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. While Apex Legends Mobile and Apex Legends both take place in the same universe, they will be on separate servers.
