Apex Legends Mobile Release Date, TIME, UK Launch, Supported iOS & Android Devices, More | Games | Entertainment

Apex Legends is definitely one of the best Battle Royale games out there, so it’s good to see it finally make its way to mobile phones and tablets. After recently delaying the launch of Apex Legends Mobile due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, developer Respawn has set a new release date for the handheld spin-off. Coming to Android and iOS, Apex Legends Mobile has a March 7 release date and a launch time of midnight Pacific Standard Time. Unfortunately, however, the initial launch will be limited to just ten countries, and that doesn’t include the UK or the US.

Instead, Apex Legends Mobile will be available on Android and iOS in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, and Colombia.

The UK and US launch date is very much dependent on the success of the limited rollout in the countries listed above.

Developer Respawn isn’t giving away much, only that they’ll be sharing additional information soon.

“We will share global launch updates once we have made informed decisions following the limited regional launch,” Respawn continues.

“If you’re in one of the participating test countries, pre-registration is now open. We’re still actively testing the app around the world and can’t wait for more players to join the party at launch!”

In terms of content, Apex Legends Mobile will launch with a limited number of characters, including Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Wraith, Bangalore, Octane, Mirage, Pathfinder, and Caustic.

Needless to say, the mobile version won’t support cross-play with consoles or PC, at least not at launch.

On the face of it, that won’t change in the future, with the game being built specifically for smartphones: “Apex Legends Mobile is built specifically for mobile, so it won’t feature cross-play with the console or PC versions. Apex Legends.

Likewise, the developer of Apex Legends does not recommend loading the game through third-party sites.

“In our next test, the game will be available on both Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Please note that the game should not be downloaded via third-party site or direct APK download.”

If you live in one of the participating countries or want to play Apex Legends Mobile when it finally debuts in the UK, Respawn has also released a list of supported devices/specifications.

“Notably, devices not supported in the limited region test are iOS devices with less than 2 GB of RAM and Android devices with less than 3 GB of RAM.

We will be able to support Android devices with 2GB of RAM from the following brands… Vivo, Oppo, Huawei, Motorola, Samsung, Lenovo, Xiaomi.

To work on Android, you need a phone with Android 8.1, Open GL 3.0 or higher and 3 GB of free space.

For iOS devices, you need iPhone 6S or later, OS 10.0, A9 processor, 3GB or free space and at least 2GB of RAM.
