Apex Legends: Most downloaded iPhone game in 60 countries

Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts launched Apex legends Mobile for Android and iOS smartphones after months of testing earlier this week on May 17. SInce the launch, the battle royale shooting game has amassed a large number of downloads. As per a new report, the title is now the most downloaded iPhone game in 60 countries.

The statistics are no surprise. On PCs and consoles, Apex Legends Mobile is one of the most popular games in the fps battle royale genre. Further, the game had been in its testing phase for months ahead of release, building good hype and also getting many players on both Android and iOS to pre-register for the game, offering rewards to those who do.

If you still haven’t downloaded Apex Legends but want to give the game a try, you can download it from the Google Play Store on Android or Apple App Store on iOS. Here’s how you can do that. Note that you will not get the pre-registering rewards if you download and install the game now as the period to pre-register has elapsed.

Apex Legends is free-to-play, but it does have microtransactions too. These include loot boxes (known as Apex Packs) and a premium currency called Apex Coins. This makes it possible to purchase cosmetic items in the store - skins, weapon camos and other cosmetic items that make no difference to in gameplay.

On the official site, it lists the minimum for GB storage as 22 GB. Minimum being the keyword, with all the updates, maps, and new legends. Players should expect the download to run at about roughly 60GB.

Apex Legends Mobile is free-to-play* and never includes paid items that grant a gameplay advantage. Apex Legends Mobile will feature its own Battle Passes, collectible cosmetics, and unlockables unique from those found in the PC and console versions of Apex Legends.

Playing and winning matches earns players experience points. These points will eventually see you levelling up. Each time you gain a new level, you'll also earn rewards like Apex Packs and Legend Tokens. 

Play levels are capped at 500, but after you reach the max level you can still carry on earning Legend Tokens.
