Mobile gamers around the world are only a few weeks away from finally being able to play the much-awaited “Apex Legends Mobile.” Respawn Entertainment recently confirmed that the game is scheduled to go live worldwide sometime in May.

‘Apex Legends Mobile’ global release window

To recap, “Apex Legends Mobile” was initially released to a few regions in early March before EA opened the global pre-registration on Android later in the same month. VGC reported on Monday that Respawn has confirmed the full release of the mobile game in May during a developer panel.

The “Apex Legends Mobile” release in May was also announced on the game’s official Twitter page, along with the reminder that Android users can now pre-register for the game. Pre-registration is not yet available on iOS, but the game is confirmed to launch on Apple devices as well.

“It’s an exciting time for our team right now,” “Apex Legends Mobile” design director Jordan Patz said. “We’re wrapping up soft launch and we’ve learned a lot about the game in a short period.”

‘Apex Legends Mobile’ specs requirements

Respawn has previously released the official specs requirements on Android and iOS on the “Apex Legends Mobile” FAQ page. Android devices will need at least the Snapdragon 435 / Hisilicon Kirin 650 / Mediatek Helio P20 / Exynos 7420 chip, Android 6.0 OS, OpenGL version 3.1, 4GB storage space, and 2GB RAM.

“Apex Legends Mobile” will only be supported on iPhone 6s (powered by A9 Bionic) or later models. The game will also need Apple devices to run on iOS 11.0 or later and the same storage and RAM requirements for Android.

‘Apex Legends Mobile’ features

Respawn reiterated this week that “Apex Legends Mobile” will launch with 10 Legends, including fan-favorites Wraith, Octane, Bloodhound, and Pathfinder. The game will also feature familiar maps like World’s Edge and Kings Canyon. “We’re adding some twists to excite old school fans as well,” Patz added.

Similar to the PC and console version of the game, “Apex Legends Mobile” is also free-to-play with microtransactions. That means mobile gamers will be able to purchase cosmetic items and Battle Passes that EA says will be “unique” from the ones released in the original game. However, the mobile game will not support cross-play with other platforms.
