Apex Legends Mobile closed beta expands to more regions

Respawn /

The next round of closed beta for Apex Legends Mobile, the mobile version of EA’s hit battle royale title, has kicked off in Mexico, Columbia and Peru. There are plans to continue expanding to Egypt and Turkey as early as October 6, barring any setbacks. Prior to this week, the beta for Apex Legends Mobile had only been available in India and the Philippines so the fact that it’s becoming available in new regions means we’re hopefully closer to an actual launch date.

Unfortunately, the game is still now available for players in North America which I’m sure is a major audience desperately wanting to get in.

The Apex Legends Mobile beta is only available on Android devices, but EA does have plans to expand the size of the tests and eventually implement iOS support. If you now live in one of the supported beta regions, you can pre-register for it on the Google Play Store page for a chance to get an invite.

Like its PC and console counterpart, Apex Legends Mobile will be free-to-play when it launches. However, it won’t feature cross-play with the other versions of the game and it will have its own Battle Passes, cosmetics and unlockables that are unique to it.

As for the gameplay, Apex Legends Mobile is being developed with the goal for it to feel like the “Apex Legends at its core.” Obviously, some changes will need to be made to make it more mobile friendly, but if the spirit of the game is intact, then it should be a great experience.

The game also only features the World’s Edge map and only has some of the original Legends available to play. While more content will certainly be added post-launch, it sounds like this current beta is pretty bare bones right now.

Regardless, anytime a beta is expanded it’s a good sign. Hopefully we get a North American beta date soon.
