Apex Legends Mobile gets limited release in 10 countries

After months of rumors and development updates, Apex Legends Mobile is finally getting a limited release ahead of its worldwide launch. In a blog post shared yesterday, Respawn revealed that players in 10 countries around the world will be able to freely download the game from their respective app store and can play a limited number of modes and legends.

The limited release is intended as a beta test and a way of stress-testing the game’s matchmaking and progression systems. At the end of the beta period, progress will be reset before the game launches across the world.

Players in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, and Colombia will be able to access the beta. There isn’t crossplay between Apex Legends Mobile and regular Apex Legends, but players who are on mobile will be able to form parties and create Clubs with other mobile players.

World’s Edge is the only available map in the limited release, but there are a handful of modes to try, including Team Deathmatch, Mini Battle Royale, and 3v3 Arenas. A small selection of legends will be available to use during the beta, notably excluding some of the game’s newer playable characters, including Mad Maggie.

In true EA fashion, Apex Legends Mobile also includes an in-game store and plenty of additional paid content. Player progression will be reset once the limited release period is over, but those who participate during the beta will receive an exclusive badge, weapon charm, and banner frame that will carry over into the worldwide launch. Apex Legends Mobile also keeps the Battle Pass structure from the full game, allowing players to unlock cosmetics, voice lines, and in this case, a legend — Caustic — once they reach tier 25.

Apex Legends Mobile is available now on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store if you’re in one of the 10 countries it’s currently available in.

Apex Legends’ next season increases the level cap and removes self-revive
Relic is a new part of Kings Canyon's rework in Apex Legends Season 14.

Season 14 of Apex Legends is almost upon us, so Respawn Entertainment and EA revealed some of the major reworks coming to the game with when the Hunted season begins. Namely, the developers highlighted the redesigned Kings Canyon, increased level cap, and balance updates like the removal of self-revive.
In 2020, Loba blew up Skull Town in Kings Canyon. Now, the entire map is seeing a rework as part of Season 14 to improve the pacing and balance of matches on the map. Skull Town is now called Relic and is a bit bigger, the Cage was reworked to be a little lower and more vulnerable, Hillside's interiors were removed, and Broken Relay is now called Basin and got new buildings. Those, along with the other visual update Kings Canyon got, should make this old Apex Legends map feel brand new again.

Another big change is coming to account levels. Previously, there were 500 levels for players to work their way through. Starting with Season 14, players can work their way to level 500 three more times, technically increasing the level cap to 2000. This means that players will now be able to earn 544 Apex Packs and an Heirloom by leveling up. The start of Season 14 will also introduce some notable balance changes to Apex Legends, as is to be expected.
Some notable changes are that SMGs and pistols have a new laser sight attachment, the Wingman will now use sniper ammo, the Spitfire will now light ammo, the EVA-8 will see an increased fire rate, handling, and reload speed, and more. Most notably though, self-revive is getting removed. This is complicated by a change to Gold Equipment perks, including a new one for the Backpack called Deep Pockets that increases the number of medical supplies players can carry.Apex Legends is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch. Season 14 begins on August 9.
