    Apex Legends Mobile is finally launching next week after a long test since last year. The mobile version of the popular Apex Legends FPS shooter will be available on both Android and iOS devices starting next week as a free to play title, similar to the PC version. However, the first release is limited to a few countries only and sadly India does not make it to this list. On the other hand, EA is offering battlefield Mobile Alpha test version India specifically in the next few weeks.

    Apex Legends Mobile has long been in development, with the game making its way to Google Play in early 2021. However, the development phase has taken a long time and the game is now finally getting released for the public. Apex Legends Mobile will compete directly with the likes of Call of Duty: Mobile, Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), PUBG New State, and Garena Free Fire Max.

    Apex Legends Mobile: Which countries are getting it?

    At launch, Electronic Arts will make Apex Legends Mobile available to ten countries, which includes Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, and Colombia.

    When it comes to a global release, EA says, “We'll be sharing updates on global launch once we've made informed decisions coming out of the limited regional launch. 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 we can't wait for more players to join the fun at launch!”
