According to EA’s official announcement, the mobile version of its FPS battle royale game “Apex Heroes” began a small-scale regional beta test on April 28 in India.
According to reports, the official preliminary decision is to open only Android testing, with internal testing to follow in late May in the Philippines. Users who have scheduled an appointment and received the test qualification will be informed at that time.
It’s worth noting that the mobile game version is not cross-platform and uses a free game, dress-up, and props payment model, as well as having an exclusive pass for the mobile game.
After the test has begun, it can only be accessed by pre-registered Google Store users in India, and those who download and register first have the best chance of qualifying for the test. The quota is small and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
According to Apex Legends’ game director, “Apex Legends Mobile” was produced with touch screens in mind. The most advanced battle royale battle on mobile phones has been developed thanks to its streamlined controls and careful optimization. While it is a modern version of Apex Legends, it remains true to the original.
At least based on the current few early screenshots, the mobile version appears to be identical to the existing PC and console versions, but EA has yet to reveal the controls and game interface. The game will be free-to-play like other platforms, but it will not allow cross-platform multiplayer battles between PCs and consoles, according to the announcement.
In addition, EA intends to support iOS in the future, as well as expand the number of regions tested.
