How to preregister for Apex Legends Mobile

Apex Legends was a surprise drop that took the gaming world by storm when it hit. No one was prepared for, or expecting, this new take on the battle royale genre to come along and be as polished, fun, and featured as it was right out of the gate. Since then, while updates are relatively slow compared to the frequency bigger titles like Fortnite, Apex Legends has enjoyed a healthy and consistent level of support over its life.

The next evolution in this free-to-play shooter came as almost as much of a shock as the original game itself — a mobile version. Aptly named Apex Legends Mobile, this upcoming port of the hero-based battle royale will hit Android and iOS devices on May 17, this time giving players a chance to register beforehand to ensure they will have a smooth experience dropping into the game. With the promise of new modes and features not seen in the PC or console version, you'll want to make sure to get in early for an edge. Here's how to preregister for Apex Legends Mobile.

What is Apex Legends Mobile?

Apex Legends Mobile isn't just a mobile port of the console and PC version of the game. Because it is its own platform, Apex Legends Mobile will not have any crossplay functionality with either console or PC platforms, as well as have its own distinct progression system. Respawn has stated that the game was built from the ground up with "streamlined controls and thoughtful optimizations that result in the most advanced battle royale combat available on a phone."

Apex Legends Mobile will initially launch with 10 Legends, with more coming later, including ones unique to this version of the game. Two maps will be available as well: World's Edge and Kings Canyon, though with some new changes said to "excite old-school fans."

Finally, aside from the expected battle royale mode, Apex Legends Mobile will also be getting some exclusive modes that will bring in "new ways to play with your friends," and "explore the world of Apex Legends."

How to connect a PS5 controller to a PC
playstation 5 controller ps5

The PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller is one of the biggest leaps in controller design ever, adding advanced haptic feedback to Sony’s new console. For games that take full advantage of it, like Astro’s Playroom, the effect it has on the play experience can be truly game-changing. Like most other console controllers, the DualSense can also be used to play games on PC, though without the full benefit of features like variable-resistance triggers.

For those who want to get a little more mileage out of their DualSense, here’s how to connect the PS5 controller to a PC. While the good news is that the DualSense works just like any other controller on a PC, the bad news is that, well, the DualSense works just like any other controller. It may lack the PS5-specific features that make it such a standout when connected to a PC, but it’s also simple to set up and use, whether you want to connect using a USB cable or Bluetooth.
How to connect a PS5 controller to PC with USB
Connecting the PS5 controller to a PC with a USB cable will likely be the go-to option for most people, as it’s extremely easy to do and won’t run the risk of draining the DualSense’s battery during a play session. Just connect the DualSense to a USB-C to USB-A cable (like the one that comes with the PS5), and plug the other end into your PC. If your PC has a USB-C port, you can also use a regular USB-C cable. If you’re purchasing a new DualSense on its own, as opposed to using one that comes with the console, just be aware that it won’t come with its own cable.
How to connect a PS5 controller to PC with Bluetooth
If your computer has built-in Bluetooth capability or you have a separate Bluetooth adapter, you can also connect the DualSense wirelessly. The process is the same as connecting any wireless controller. Just hold the PS button and the Create button on the DualSense to start pairing. On your PC, navigate to the Bluetooth & Other Devices menu and click Add Bluetooth or other device, then select the Bluetooth option. When the connection is made, the PS5 controller will show up as Wireless Controller in the menu.
How to use a PS5 controller on PC with Steam
The major caveat to using a PS5 controller on PC is that not all games will recognize it natively. Fortunately, Valve added limited DualSense support to Steam almost as soon as the PS5 was released and is continuing to add features. All the Steam games with controller support are playable with the DualSense, and functions like motion controls, rumble, and the light bar should work just like they did for the PS4’s controller, though new features like adaptive triggers still aren’t working.
