If you’re new to Apex Legends Mobile and don’t know where to begin, Android Police is here to help. We’ve compiled a guide that teaches players how to survive their first battle royale match, introducing this game’s legends (characters) while outlining features/game modes available on release.
So if you’ve seen our hands-on review of the stable release and are intrigued to explore what the latest and greatest battle royale on mobile has to offer, now that Apex Legends Mobile is officially available across the globe, it’s time to prepare for your first jump.
Once you install the Apex Legends Mobile Android app, you’ll have a couple of steps to complete before entering the tutorial. The first step involves verifying your age and consenting to the game’s terms of service agreement. After this, you’ll get to choose your primary login method, where you can sign in with a Google account, EA account, Twitter, Facebook, or sign in as a guest.
Select your default settings; this can be reconfigured anytime. We recommend choosing ‘No experience in mobile shooting games (Auto-Firing will be enabled)’ or ‘Experienced in mobile shooting games’ depending on your comfort and background in mobile shooters. Once you’re prompted to pick your HUD display, the choices are ‘HUD1 – Classic Setup’ and ‘HUD2 – Apex Style’, so choose one based on your preferences.
