But unlike Warzone Mobile, Apex Legends Mobile has arrived. Here's how to play the hottest new mobile battle royale!

How Much Does Apex Legends Mobile Cost?

Apex Legends Mobile will be completely free to download and play in all regions. What a relief. But, this is Apex Legends, with some of the best character skins and weapon skins in the business, so you should expect them to push the store and Apex Packs as much as possible.

What Is The Apex Legends Mobile Gameplay Like?

From everything we've seen, it looks like they want to copy the original game as faithfully as possible, but in low-resolution. You should expect the same overall gameplay feel, with its focus on movement and teamwork, and all the same modes, even including Ranked. Unfortunately, you should also expect cheating:

Which Map Will Apex Legends Mobile Be Played On?

World's Edge is the only confirmed map, but more are expected to come either on-launch or shortly thereafter. This will probably be well received, Olympus might be the best map, but World's End is also a popular choice.

Will Apex Legends Mobile Support Cross-Platform?

No, Apex Legends Mobile will not support cross-platform play with PC or console. That's great news for mobile players. If console players have it tough against PC players, imagine how imbalanced a poor old mobile user would feel. Results would be devastating.

Alternatives To Mobile

If your phone is not able to run Apex Legends, or it can't run it well, then you can alternatively play on PC with Android emulators like BlueStacks. Of course, we haven't seen the Apex Legends Mobile terms of service yet, and you should read for yourself at launch to know whether such emulators are allowed. But for most mobile games, using a 3rd party service to access Android is okay.

And that's about everything we can tell you in regard to Apex Legends Mobile right now. Who are you going to play first? One of the best beginner Legends? Or perhaps someone annoying to wind up your teammates?
