The recently concluded beta testing for Apex Legends Mobile signals the anticipated debut of the ultra-popular battle royale game on mobile.
Respawn Entertainment is gearing up for the eventual release of Apex Legends Mobile this month. To gear up and prepare for the game’s official release this month, EA has officially shut down Beta Testing as of Friday, May 6.
Unfortunately, the Closed Beta shutdown has caught some fans off guard, with many wondering what will happen to the in-game cosmetic upgrades that they have purchased in the Closed Beta.
What is Apex Legends Closed Beta?
Since March 2022, Apex Legends Mobile has been made available to a limited number of regions for beta testing purposes.
Fans of the highly popular battle royale game had access to a limited number of Legends, such as Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Wraith, Bangalore, Octane, Mirage, Pathfinder, and Caustic. Cosmetic upgrades could be purchased for these Legends as well.
Despite being a beta version of the official Apex Legends Mobile game, players could still purchase in-game cosmetic upgrades for the nine aforementioned Legends. Unfortunately, not one of those upgrades will be carried over to the official game when it comes out this month.
What will happen to Apex Legends Mobile Closed Beta Cosmetic Upgrades?
EA has expressed that all Closed Beta purchases will be reset and converted into in-game currency instead when the official Apex Legends Mobile game comes out later this month.
As a token of appreciation for helping EA get ready for the official release of Apex Legends Mobile, EA is going to give all participants of the Closed Beta an additional 25% bonus in-game credits for their converted in-game cosmetics.
Closed Beta participants have to use the same login credentials they used in the Closed Beta in the official game to collect their bonus in-game credits.
When is the release date for Apex Legends Mobile?
Apex Legends Mobile is slated for release this month of May. Unfortunately, Respawn Entertainment/EA has not released an exact date and time for the battle royale game’s official mobile release schedule.
In the meantime, fans can pre-register for the official game release through the links below:
Players who pre-register right now can even get their hands on some awesome in-game freebies, namely the ‘Become Legendary’ Holospray and ‘Sunfire Initiate’ Pathfinder skin.
In-game gameplay footage for the mobile version of Apex Legends is looking very promising, so we really can’t blame you for buying in-game cosmetics in the Closed Beta.
Fortunately for many Beta testers, EA will refund all cosmetic purchases in the Closed Beta with an additional 25% credits, as thanks for helping the team sort out the hotly anticipated battle royale game on mobile.
All that’s left now is to wait and see when Respawn Entertainment/EA announces the official release date for Apex Legends Mobile. Remember to pre-register using the links above, so you don’t miss out on any announcements!
