EA’s popular multiplayer title Apex Legends Mobile is currently close beta testing for mobile devices and has expanded its reach to more countries this week. The bad news, however, is that the game is still not available for beta testing for North American gamers. The latest reports point out that the Fifa developer is planning to slowly roll out its closed beta program to more countries in the coming days, and hopefully it will slowly reach out to gamers worldwide.
Expanding to which places exactly?
As per a series of latest tweets by Respawn Entertainment, the developers announced the expansion of the closed beta testing to Mexico, Peru, and Columbia with more countries in the coming weeks.
Earlier, the closed beta testing for the game was only limited to India and the Philippines. Moreover, these series of tweets also provide instructions for the player on how to pre-register themselves and be eligible for the closed beta testing program.
Is anything changing?
No, and the way the game was developed for the PC and the console versions, it will exactly be the same for the mobile devices, it will be free-to-play and will feature its separate battle pass, and other settings, a bit different from the actual main game.
Another thing to note is that players currently have to own an Android device if they want to try their hands on the game, as the iOS support is still in the works. Moreover, since it is in the beta stage, the game might be unstable and is currently missing out on certain maps available on other platforms. For instance, it only features the world map and is missing out on other Legends. The official screenshots mentioned in the description of the Play Store suggest that it includes Gibraltar, Bangalore, Caustic, Octane, and so on.
EA in its official FAQ site answered a few of the queries and announced that “The first of these test begins Spring 2021, and will only be available on Android devices. As we continue with testing, we’ll expand the size of these tests, add new regions, and implement iOS support. When we’re ready to go broader, we’ll launch a page that allows you to pre-register for the game and sign up for news about the betas.”
Is the mobile-friendly version going to be a hit just like the other platforms, it will depend completely on the player’s feedback. Let us know in the comment section below, how do you feel about the game’s mobile version and if you have tried it.
