Apex Legends comes to mobile for those with time to kill in church

Long drives suddenly seems like they will be more enjoyable

If you love Apex Legends, imagine how great it would be to have a whole new range of options for playing the game. Yes, we all love sitting in front of the computer for a 13-hour haul, but quite honestly it sometimes gets tiresome looking at the four walls in the basement. In a truly great world we’d be able to play the game on a plane. Or sitting in church Sunday morning. Or during final exams for medical school. With that in mind, thank the gaming gods for Apex Legends: Mobile.

In a blog post, Apex Legends game director Chad Grenier announced that a mobile-specific version of the battle royale extravaganza is now ready for beta testing. A select few thousand players in India and the Philippines will be the first to try it out over the next few months. After that, beta testing will be expanded to other regions across the planet.

Making it clear Apex Legends: Mobile is indeed a standalone game, it will not feature cross-play with the PC and console version Apex Legends.

Here is what to expect!

Giving fans a hint of what they can expect, Grenier said: “This is a huge moment for our team. Two years ago we changed the landscape of the battle royale genre, and now we’re aiming to do it again on mobile. Apex Legends Mobile is specially designed for touchscreens, with streamlined controls and thoughtful optimizations that result in the most advanced battle royale combat available on a phone.”

In other words if you’ve got an iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, iPad, Amazon Fire HD 10, RCA Voyager, Nextbook Ares 8A, or Nabi DreamTab get ready to play Apex Legends: Mobile in the bathtub, during a funeral, or while making the endlessly monotonous drive from Moose Jaw to Thunder Bay.

There’s also great news for those who’d prefer the old-school Pc and console version of the game. Apex Legends has just rolled one of the biggest updates in the game’s history.
