Apex Legends Mobile requirements & price
If you’re interested in playing Apex on your handheld device but are unsure if you’ll be able to run it, make sure you also check out our piece on all the requirements you’ll need to run the game on your phone, including the game’s size.
The game is free-to-play so you won’t have to purchase anything to enjoy the gameplay. However, if you’d like to obtain premium rewards from the battle pass, you will need to spend money in order to do so.
Apex Legends Mobile gameplay
Apex Legends Mobile’s gameplay is inherently similar to the battle royale players know and love, featuring all of the same weapons and mechanics. There are some subtle differences though, such as being able to enter third person.
One thing to note that is important is that Apex Legends Mobile does not feature cross-play or cross-progression, so you don’t have to worry about getting destroyed by those on PC and consoles while on your phone.
Apex Legends Mobile offers players a variety of game modes including:
- Battle Royale
- Classic and new LTMs such as Mini Royale
- Team Deathmatch
Players select from a smaller pool of the main game’s Legends including Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Pathfinder, Wraith, Bangalore, Caustic, Mirage, Octane, and brand new Mobile-first Legend Fade.
This new Legend, Fade, is exclusive to Apex Legends Mobile, with no current plans to bring them to the game on PC and Consoles.
If you’d like to know more about this new Legend, check out our guide on Apex Legends Mobile’s Fade, including his abilities and background story.
A third-person perspective is another feature only available in Mobile, apart from an easter egg players can activate in the PC and console version’s Firing Range.
In the Mobile version, players can switch between third and first-person, depending on their preference. When in third-person, players will get a better view of what’s around them, and the camera will switch back to first when aiming down sights.
Apex Legends Mobile maps
Currently, players only have access to one battle royale map in Apex Legends Mobile, which is the original World’s Edge.
The devs have confirmed that Kings Canyon will become available in the future, perhaps even during the first season for the mobile game.
There are some other maps available for players, such as the Overflow Arenas map from the main game. There are also POIs from Kings Canyon like Artillery that are available in the Team Deathmatch mode for Apex Legends Mobile.
The devs also teased that some new maps will also be “mobile-first,” but, we’ll probably get more information on these later down the line.
Apex Legends Mobile battle pass & seasonal content
Apex Legends Mobile also features seasons with battle passes and challenges. Unlike the console and PC versions of Apex Legends, seasons and battle passes will only be one month long.
There are both paid and free versions of the battle pass and players will be completing daily and weekly challenges in order to progress.
There is also Legend progression in which players can expand the utility of a Legend by equipping perks that give them added benefits, such as faster reload. This is an exclusive feature to Apex Legends Mobile and adds more personalization to the game.
That’s all for how to download and play Apex Legends Mobile. For more, check out Valkyrie’s leaked Heirloom design and animations.

When did Apex Legends come out?
Apex Legends has become one of the most popular battle royale games in the world, but when did it first release?
Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royales in the world, but when did it come out? Here’s everything you need to know about the game’s original release date.
From PUBG to Fortnite, Apex Legends to Warzone, the battle royale genre has truly dominated the gaming scene for the last five years. In fact, the mode has become so important to shooters that games that launch without one are viewed as missing a vital component.
Each battle royale brings its own spin to the genre, capturing the imagination of players looking for new experiences. For Fortnite, building set it apart from its opponents, while Warzone’s use of class loadouts made it different from anything else on the market.
For Apex Legends, the use of characters with special and unique abilities meant that nothing else on the market could match its high-octane action, and unsurprisingly, thousands still jump on and play years after its launch. But when did Apex Legends actually release?
When did Apex Legends release?
Apex Legends released on February 4, 2019, and was available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
Since then, the developers have released next-gen versions of the game for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, offering upgraded graphics and performance thanks to the power of the new consoles.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes: Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg, bug fixes, more
Apex Legends has a brand-new 1.99 patch which brings bug fixes and new interactive Easter Egg for Lifeline’s Clinic.
Respawn Entertainment have dropped a new patch for Apex Legends Season 13, which includes a variety of changes and even interactive objects for Lifeline’s Town Takeover.
The Apex Legends 1.99 patch is small, but for those who are interested, here are the patch notes for the update.
Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg
This patch is very small, and Respawn Entertainment haven’t actually revealed patch notes for what the update actually brought to the game. However, thanks to dataminer Kralindo, we have information on what the update has done.
One of the most interesting changes in the patch is the addition of interactive objects in Lifeline’s Town Takeover.
In Lifeline’s Clinic, players can now play the drums, guitar, and more. Interacting with these objects will play audio, which is a little Easter Egg for Lifeline’s previous occupation as a punk band drummer, hence her drum sticks Heirloom.
Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes
Although there are no official patch notes for the Apex Legends 1.99 patch, luckily Kralindo has gone through the game’s code and figured out some of the changes.
There may be more changes server-side, but here are all the changes Kralindo managed to see:
- Some small Newcastle tactical changes, most likely bug fixes
- Lifeline town takeover interactive objects activated
- 500 Apex Coins enabled in the store (via playlist)
- Really small change for the Replicator
That’s all for the Apex Legends Season 13 1.99 patch. For more, check out how the ranked reset works.

Who is the most popular Apex Legends character? Season 13 pick rates
Apex Legends Season 13 is well underway, but who has dominated the pick rates for Season 13 of Respawn’s battle royale so far?
Season 13 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 13 pick rates in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?
Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many popular streamers such as NICKMERCS and Dr Disrespect continuing to support the game, Apex has grown expeditiously.
Let’s take a look at how the new Legend has shaken up the roster by looking at the current Legend pick rates in Season 13, which provides an idea of who the most popular Legends are.
Apex Legends Season 13 pick rate ranked list
This is our complete list of every character pick in Apex Legends, and we’ve ranked them in order to let you know which are favored.
Here is every Apex Legends pick rate in Season 13 ranked, as of June 30, 2022, according to Apex Legends Status:
- Octane – 11.4%
- Wraith – 10.2%
- Valkyrie – 10%
- Pathfinder – 9.5%
- Bloodhound – 8.4%
- Horizon – 6.1%
- Lifeline – 4.9%
- Bangalore – 4.6%
- Ash – 3.9%
- Fuse – 3.6%
- Loba – 3.3%
- Caustic – 3.2%
- Seer – 3%
- Mirage – 2.8%
- Gibraltar – 2.5%
- Wattson – 2.4%
- Rampart – 2.4%
- Revenant – 2.2%
- Newcastle – 2%
- Mad Maggie – 1.7%
- Crypto – 1.7%
Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 13
5. Bloodhound – 8.4%
Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 13.
Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 8.4%. They are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.
4. Pathfinder – 9.5%
Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 9.5%, and counting, for quite some time now.
As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.
3. Valkyrie – 10%
Despite getting some nerfs, Valkyrie is in the top 5 Legend pick rates for Season 13 with 10%, as she is the movement Queen. Her Jetpack Passive allows players to escape any kind of situation, which is crucial for survivability.
As well as her Passive, her Skyward Dive Ultimate is also great for mobility. This ability is the best rotational tool in all of Apex Legends, as it allows her and the team to relocate from a bad position or situation, into a good one.
Lastly, Valkyrie’s Tactical is also extremely useful for being aggressive and getting enemies out of camping spots, so long as you have enough room above you to launch the Missile Swarm.
2. Wraith – 10.2%
Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number two spot with a 10.2% pick rate in Season 13.
Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan favorite in Apex Legends Season 13.
1. Octane – 11.4% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 13
With an 11.4% pick rate, the speed demon takes the number one spot, continuing his reign as one of the most popular Legends in Season 13, fluctuating between the top two places.
Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.
But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.
That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 13. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.
We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks and don’t forget to check out our guide on the best Legends to choose in Season 13.
