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."
