Apex Legends Mobile Closed Beta Coming to The Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia
Respawn Entertainment announced that Apex Legends Mobile will be launching in a closed beta for players in the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia. Players can pre-register on the Google Play Store and they will be notified whenever the beta becomes available. The Philippines was part of the first batch of closed beta tests along with India and this is the second time that players will be getting limited access to the game. There is no official word on when the iOS closed beta tests will begin and all betas so far have been limited to Android users only.
Apex Legends Mobile overview
According to Respawn Entertainment, the upcoming game “is specially designed for touchscreens, with streamlined controls and thoughtful optimizations that result in the most advanced battle royale combat available on a phone.” The game will feature the same gameplay elements as its PC and console counterparts.
Apex Legends Mobile features duos and trios gameplay with a ranked system and limited-time events that change up the casual modes to offer some gameplay variety. Apex was one of the first games to introduce a respawn system that allows players to bring teammates back into the game by picking up their “banners” from death boxes.

Apex Legends Mobile system requirements
It looks like you will need quite a high-end phone to run Apex Legends Mobile smoothly. IGN India reports that the game will at least require an iPhone 8 and above for iOS or a Snapdragon 625 or above for Android to play the game.
Processor: Snapdragon 625 or above.
Processor: A11 Bionic and above (iPhone 8, 10.5 iPad Pro, or newer devices)
However, the beta is not available to all devices even if they meet the system requirements. If your device meets the system requirements but the game is not available, you will have to wait until Respawn widens the compatibility for the game’s beta.
When will Apex Legends Mobile be available in my region
India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru, Colombia, Egypt, Lebanon, and the Philippines are the regions that have already received or will receive the closed beta. There are no confirmed release dates for any other regions so far.
