Apex Legends Mobile Early Access now available in India

Players from India can now install Apex Legends Mobile.

Apex Legends Mobile is currently in its early access and will only be available for Android users in India. As the testing phase continues, more regions and devices will be granted access to the game. 

“We’ll be steadily rolling out Apex Legends Mobile around the world in a series of tests. To start with, we’ll do a series of smaller closed beta tests in India and the Philippines,” The devs stated in their blog post.

Select players from India can now access and download the game from the Apex Legends Mobile Google Play store page. However, only android devices with Android 9.0 and at least 4GB RAM will be able to download the game in the Google Play store. The devs will only allow a limited number of players to gain access to the game for the closed beta testing. However, pre-registered players will eventually gain access to the game as the beta testing continues.

“We're keeping things small to start—just a few thousand players in India and the Philippines—but over the course of this year we're planning to roll the game out to more regions and more players around the world,” stated the devs.
