Apex Legends players furious as mobile game gets solos ahead of PC and console

Apex Legends Mobile has added the much-requested single-player game mode, but players are furious that it hasn’t been confirmed for PC and console versions of the battle royale title.


At its core, Apex Legends is a team-oriented game that encourages players to watch their teammates’ backs and combine their legends’ abilities for powerful team combos. Although Apex is a team-based game, that hasn’t stopped the community from asking for a single-player mode.

Now, this mode has finally arrived in Apex Legends Mobile, and players can access the battle royale title without needing to find teammates. However, the single player mode is not available on all platforms.

In June, a single-player mode was leaked for Apex Legends Mobile, and its arrival was finally confirmed in the Aftershow patch notes on October 3. According to the description, the mode features “just you and a map full of enemies fighting to be the Apex Champion.”

While that sounds exciting, the Apex Legends community is disappointed as the single player mode hasn’t been confirmed for the PC and console versions of the game yet. It’s unclear if they’ll be getting the playlist at some point in time. near future.

This didn’t sit well with fans, and many of them expressed their frustration about it online. One user on Twitter claimed that the developers are “giving the mobile version more love than the main Apex Legends game.”

Other users were also upset that a single player playlist was prepared for Apex Legends mobile but not on other platforms. Back in Season 2, there was a limited-time solos mode during the Iron Crown event.

Another player featured this LTM and claimed that the devs were testing it, but they decided not to bring it back because it’s a team game. The user then added that despite this, “the mobile team has no problem with this.”

A few players in the thread praised the Mobile team for bringing this feature to the handheld version of the game. They even called Respawn Entertainment to let them work on the PC and console versions.

One fan tweeted, “Can we please let the Mobile team do the normal game? They have so many different modes in addition to other features that we’ve been craving for Respawn ever since they released.

Even players who aren’t fans of Apex Legends Mobile were impressed with the decision to add a solo playlist. One of the responses claimed that the game was “100% worse on mobile” but had content that was missing in other versions.

They explained that the Movile version has “the best skins and the best modes than PC [players] asked for years. »

While a lot of players were frustrated over this, a few defended the decision to bring a permanent single-player mode to Apex Legends Mobile first. One user’s argument was that mobile phones are the perfect platform for this game mode.

According to this gamer: “Mobiles are mostly used on the go and are primarily a single player device, while PC and console are the opposite.” They explained that it was an “obvious” design choice by the developers.

There were a variety of opinions on this, but it’s clear that the Apex Legends community wants Respawn to include this single-player mode on all platforms. As of this writing, it remains to be seen if they intend to do so.
