Two years ago we changed the landscape of the battle royale genre, and now we’re aiming to do it again on mobile.”
“Apex Legends Mobile is specially designed for touchscreens, with streamlined controls and thoughtful optimizations that result in the most advanced battle royale combat available on a phone.”
“It’s a new version of Apex Legends, but it’s true to the original.”
Today, EA and Respawn Entertainment also dropped the Story from Outlands “Northstar” trailer. Which was followed by series of new information on Season 9 Legacy.
