What are the Apex Legends Mobile pre-registration details?

Pre-registering for Apex Legends Mobile will net you special rewards, such as various weapon cosmetics, emotes, banners, and skins. Respawn Entertainment is implementing a community reward feature, giving you access to various tiers of rewards that tie to the number of players who have re-registered.

For instance, after hitting 10 million pre-registrations, Respawn has added the Molten Earth Epic Skin. The game currently sits at around 15.5 million pre-registrations and will offer the Sunfire Initiate Epic skin reward if it reaches 25 million.

In addition to rewards, players who pre-register will get updates about Apex Legends Mobile news and offers.

Below are links to pre-register across both platforms:

Keep in mind, that you can only pre-register before the game releases, so you don’t have much time left to do so.

What are the Apex Legends Mobile platforms and cross-play details?

Apex Legends Mobile will not feature cross-play with the console and PC versions of Apex Legends.

Apex Legends Mobile will launch for iOS and Android devices. Respawn also explained that since this is a completely different version of the game built for mobile, it will not support cross-play with the PC and console editions of Apex Legends. You can, however, play with or against others across the iOS and Android versions of Apex Legends Mobile.
