reappear tweeted the announcement along with a trailer for the mobile version of the game. Although the trailer doesn’t show any actual gameplay, it does add some interesting story and hints at a new legend joining the roster of playable characters in Apex Mobile. This isn’t much of a surprise, as Respawn has previously stated that there will be mobile-exclusive content including maps, modes, events, and even legends. If this new character debuts next week alongside Apex Legends Mobile: Season 1, it would be the first time Respawn has introduced two Legends in such a short amount of time.
