Before being dropped onto a map, you and your teammates choose from a list of “legends,” or heroic figures. You must loot supplies and weapons, evade the growing energy wall that gradually herds teams into a small area, and be the last team standing to win. Beyond battle royale, the game has two modes: arenas and team deathmatch.
Players can earn rewards in Apex Legends Mobile in a number of ways. Battle pass daily and weekly tasks, player level advancement via gameplay experience points, cosmetic legend and weapon unlocking Apex Packs, and the perk system are all available to help you advance in both the free and premium tiers of a battle pass. Additionally, there are time-limited events and challenges which also enable players to earn free rewards.
Each season comes with its specific themes and seasonal currencies. Currencies can be bought using real money or can be earned by completing in-game missions, which gives players the chance to obtain cosmetic bundles, frames, holo sprays, and more. The game receives a mid-seasonal update in addition to seasonal updates. It has stepped into its currently ongoing 3rd season, with the split season 3.5 introducing legend Revenant to the game.
In the Best Game and Best Game (Users’ Choice) categories of the Google Play Best of 2022 Awards, Apex Legends Mobile triumphed over strong competitors like Diablo Immortal and Rocket League Sideswipe. The game also won Apple’s iPhone Game of the Year at the 2022 App Store Awards, joining other winners like Australian blockbuster Wylde Flowers for Apple Arcade Game of the Year.
