In Apex Legends Mobile, players can join forces with two friends to compete with other mobile players, combining each Legend's unique skills to master team roles, synergize plays and dominate the Apex Games. With ten Legends at launch, including Fade, players can choose from a cast of beloved Legends each with their own unique abilities and personalities that fit an array of playstyles.
