Apex Legends brings its Legacy season online and announces plans for a mobile version


Now is the time for Apex Legends players to build their legacy. Or at the very least leap in to the Legacy season of the battle royale shooter, which features a new character by the name of Valkyrie and her rocket-powered jetpack, a new bow and arrow weapon that promises high medium-range damage for those who can land their shots, a new battle pass, a new ranked ladder, and some adjustments to the Olympus map in the form of an infestation of roots and natural growths.

Meanwhile, the devs at Respawn Entertainment have unveiled plans for a mobile version of the game, promising “streamlined controls and thoughtful optimizations that result in the most advanced battle royale combat available on a phone” that’s true to the original title. Beta testing of the mobile version will start this spring in India and the Philippines on Android, followed by further testing to other regions and devices over time. For now, the FAQ does explain that the mobile version won’t feature cross-play and will be free-to-play at launch.

I got into the game about 2 months ago, and have been HOOKED since. It was a wild jump going from MMORPG to Battle Royale FPS, especially since I’ve historically sucked out loud at FPS games before, but god, it’s been so much fun. I’m about to finish out the Battle Pass (level 104 out of 110, and it resets on May 4th, but I got into it way late) and I’m level 74 as a player, as well.

What a lot of people may not realize is that Apex Legends is set in the Titanfall Universe, after the events of Titanfall 2. In fact, the new legend, Valkyrie, is the daughter of one of the most notorious bosses in Titanfall 2. Having learned this a few days ago, I bought/downloaded Titanfall 2 (on sale for $7.50 on Steam) and have been having a blast playing it, too, and seeing where a LOT of the roots of Apex come from.

So if you like Titanfall? Get into Apex if you can. The teaser trailer also mentioned “more modes” and “beyond just a Battle Royale” coming with the new Legacy season (Season 9) starting May the 4th. No idea what they meant, but I have a slight feeling it’ll be 5v5 or 3v3 stuff in small-scale combat.
