Apex Legends Gameplay Details
Although Apex Legends Mobile is a standalone application, it draws several elements from the regular version which is operated on PC and other consoles. The major maps, game modes, and battle passes are involved in the mobile version of the game too. Developing the game from the bedrock, fully well-optimized for touchscreens has to be very challenging for developers. The game has made the fan-favourite map, King’s Canyon absent in BR mode. However, you will get to see portions of the map in the Team Deathmatch and Arenas mode. The game’s first season patch notes are named Prime Time and down below are some of its features.
EA has introduced a new mobile-exclusive Legend named Fade with the mobile version of the game. Fade is a new legend who possesses passive, tactical, and ultimate abilities. The passive ability is called Slipstream which gives a quick boost at the end of his slide. His tactical ability called Flashback helps him to get back to his previous location with ease. Finally comes his ultimate ability which is named Phase Chamber, which allows him to throw a core, which saves everyone in its radius from any damage upon exploding. Players can unlock fade after attaining tier 25.
Apart from the new Legend, the game is set to see a new Overflow map in Arena mode and Advanced Training Level. Players can explore and learn advanced battle drills. The new additions include new arms like the heatshield, 30-30 marksman rifle, and 4x-10x thermal imaging optic scope. Team-fill is a new feature that auto-fills a new player in the deathmatch mode when a player leaves the game in the middle.
The mobile version of Apex Legends will also have a battle pass season, which is heard often in other BR titles like PUBM/BGMI, Call of Duty, Free Fire, etc. Players can receive free rewards and also exclusive rewards upon buying the battle pass with Apex Legends coins that include exclusive gun skins and other perks. Other features and the interface will bear a major resemblance to the game’s original/regular version on PC and console.
Can I Play the Mobile Version of Apex Legends on Emulator?
The answer is yes, one can play the mobile version of Apex Legends on Emulator. But the problem is you cannot download the game from an official source as the game is not yet made official to emulators. One has to download and install the game manually to play the game in an Emulator. Note that the game would have many bugs and glitches as the game is not available for emulators. Therefore, the game is not optimized to be played on Emulator. We suggest you not play the game on Emulator until an official announcement rolls out.
Does Apex Legends Mobile support Cross-Platform play?
It is a disappointment for the mobile players to team up with PC or other console players as the mobile version does not allow cross-play. However, it is to note that the mobile version is completely separate from the PC or Console version. There are major elements available in the game that are only mobile-exclusive. It is a standalone application and you can observe the difference between playing the game on a Mobile and another console.
It would not be fair gameplay if we ditch all these players in the same battlegrounds, especially without controller support. Considering this, Respawn Entertainment had announced that they are not allowing cross-play for the mobile and other console versions. We may expect changes in this feature in the coming days. Cross-play on iOS and Android are supported.
Will this game have Controller Support?
The above picture shows controller-style button pointers on the cluttered HUD, implying that the game, like CoD Mobile, will allow smartphone (or emulator) users to pair up a game controller and enjoy it like the PC or the console version.
