What champions will make the jump to Apex Legends Mobile?

There is very little we know about the game at this point including whether or not this is set to be a like-for-like port of the full game or a brand new and unique mobile experience. There are always unique challenges when taking a huge game like Apex and trying to squeeze it down into a device with limited power.

Apex Legends Mobile will look to fill the void on iOS that was left behind by Fortnite when it was taken off the app store. Granted, Fortnite is now playable on iOS devices thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming but it's nothing compared to the experience of running a game natively through its dedicated app.

EA and Respawn will be hoping that the game clicks with its hardcore fanbase and possibly even produces its own esports opportunities. Not many mobile games - especially shooters - have cracked that market but Apex Legends Mobile could have a similar following to PUBG Mobile only with a larger worldwide appeal.
