Respawn Entertainment is finally bringing its battle royale experience to mobile. here is everything you need to know about Apex Legends Mobile, including release date, gameplay and maps.
Apex Legends has been on consoles and PC for three years now, as the game celebrated its third anniversary with the first Season 12 collectible event.
Apex Legends is now in Season 12, and while this season has a lot to offer, players are still looking forward to future seasons.
That being said, Respawn Entertainment has decided to bring the battle royale to the mobile gaming community, with some gamers getting the chance to play the game early thanks to the limited regional launch.
Does Apex Legends Mobile have a release date?
Unfortunately, there are currently no official release date for Apex Legends Mobile, but the game will have a Limited Regional Launch Goes Live March 7, 2022.
This limited regional launch will obviously only be available in certain regions of the worldwhich you can find out in our article on each region in which the Apex Legends Mobile app is available.
Although we don’t have any confirmation or indication as to the release date, some suggest that we could see the official launch in April 2022 after the release of a recent trailer for the mobile game, which may have hinted at the future arrival of Blisk.
How to register for the limited regional launch
The regional launch was supposed to go live on February 28, but the release date was pushed back due to “current world events.”
That said, players can sign up now for the limited regional launch on the Google Play Store as long as they are in one of the ten regions in which it will be available.
System Requirements For Apex Legends Mobile

Game on Apex Legends Mobile
Gameplay in Apex Legends Mobile will be inherently similar to the battle royale gamers know and love, with all the same weapons and mechanics.
From little things like unlimited ammo in the firing range to detailed stats for each weapon, there are some differences the developers have explicitly implemented for the mobile version that were spotted in the beta and may stick around for launch.
To start, players will choose from a smaller group of Legends from the main game. The Closed Beta currently only has Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Wraith, Bangalore, Caustic, Octane, Mirage, and Pathfinder.
Many have spotted Revenant in one of Mobile’s promotional images, so perhaps more captions will come out as beta testing continues.
In the third person
A third-person perspective is another feature available only in Mobile, aside from an easter egg that players can activate in the PC and console version’s Firing Range.
In the mobile version, players can switch between third and first person, depending on their preference. In third person, players will have a better view of their surroundings and the camera will return to first when aiming.
Apex Legends Moving Maps
In the closed beta, the only Battle Royale map available was World’s Edge. That might change on release, and we might see Kings Canyon and Olympus on mobile at some point, but as far as we know, that’s just World’s Edge for now.
There are other maps available to players, such as the Arenas map from the main Artillery game. This map is available in Arenas for Apex Legends Mobile and in the Team Deathmatch mode which is making its way to PC and console via the Season 12 LTM “Control”.
Dataminers have also found some exclusive maps in the Apex Legends Mobile files, but again, we’ll likely get more information on that when the full game launches and is revealed.
As more information is released about Apex Legends Mobile, we’ll be sure to update this article, so check back in the future for more news. For now, check out this crazy new speed bug found by players.
