Apex Legends is one of the most popular free-to-play battle royale games of the moment. The gameplay combines elements of a variety of video games. In each game, around sixty players skydive on an island. Then, each squad has to scavenge for weapons and equipment that will help them fight other players.
After waiting to receive this news for some time, fans of Apex Legends finally get what they want. It is now official that Apex Legends Mobile will be released. Apex Legends was launched earlier this year, on February 4, 2019, and took the Battle Royale segment of video games by surprise, gaining a lot of popularity in a short time, even if it did not benefit from any pre-launch marketing or advertising. The game is available on PC, PS4 and Xbox.
Apex Legends is developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. Some argue that this game surpassed Fortnite and PUBG. Right now, cross-platform play is in development, much to the fans’ excitement.
According to the company, cross-platform play and a mobile version of Apex Legends for both Android and iOS could become available in the next months.
Some thought the hype created by Apex Legends would dim down in a few months, but the game’s popularity is still going strong.
Electronic Arts decided to follow in the steps that Epic Games followed with Fortnite, allowing cross-platform play between mobile and other platforms. On the other hand, PUBG worked on a different basis, having a much better mobile-optimized game for ANdroid and iOS.
A cross-platform version for Apex Legends would require Respawn Entertainment to do some serious work on the game’s specifications to be able to support the changes since the demand will be extremely high. This will eliminate a huge part of the market, especially players from India and South East Asia, where owning a mediocre smartphone is the trend.
