The ball has begun to roll for Apex Legends Mobile as closed beta testing starts now in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Malaysia. The massively popular PC and Console battle royale game will finally be available for Mobile soon, and players cannot wait to get their hands on it.
Apex Legends is Respawn Entertainment and EA’s take on the battle royale genre – and combines elements of hero shooters with the open expanse of the battle royale – which gives it a distinct feel. The game has been a major success on both PC and Console, and every indicator suggests that Apex Legends Mobile could be as big, or an even bigger hit on mobile devices.
Pre-registration has begun for Android users on the Google Play Store, and soon enough, players in select regions will be able to duke it out with other players in the Frontier.

It will be interesting to see how Respawn Entertainment‘s signature responsive gunplay and fluidity translate to touch controls. Apex Legends has an extremely diverse set of characters that users can play with – from Recon specialists like Bloodhound to Defensive powerhouses like Gibraltar.
It is by combining these Legends and finding the right fit that players will be able to bag the top spot in any given match. Unlike the PC and Console version, it seems like Apex Legends Mobile will allow players to seamlessly switch between first-person and third-person perspective.
