Respawn Entertainment has announced that the final release of the version for mobile devices of Apex Legends will take place “this summer”. We’ve known for some time that Respawn Entertainment’s free-to-play battle royale shooter was heading for a worldwide release on mobile, and now the developer has announced that it’s aiming for a full launch on iOS and Android this “summer,” with Android pre-registrations are now open.
The North American developer confirmed last year that it was working on a specific version for iOS and Android of its popular free-to-play Battle Royale, with controls and experience optimized for desktop screens. Apex Legends Mobile, in fact, is separate from Apex Legends for consoles and PC, with no cross-play and its own battle paths, modes, and maps.
Last month, the game started limited distribution in India and the Philippines, and in February the launch was also announced in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Mexico, in Peru, Argentina and Colombia.
With Respawn giving the game the final touches, it’s clear today that the final launch worldwide is set for this summer. Interested Android users can now register at the official webpage, which will allow them to obtain exclusive cosmetic items in the coming months. Recording for iOS, meanwhile, will arrive in the coming weeks.
