The beta for Apex Legends Mobile has been out for some time, but for those of you who weren't selected to try it out, the wait is almost over. Respawn tweeted yesterday an update regarding the status of the upcoming mobile battle royale:
Calling all legends in Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand: The soft launch for Apex Legends Mobile is coming! Pre-Registration is only available in these countries via the Google Play store, so visit the link below to participate. For all other legends, (including iOS players), stay tuned for more!
They then provided a link to the Google Play store to pre-register for the game. No official dates have been revealed yet but we expect that it shouldn't be too far away since they made this announcement. iOS users will have to continue being patient, we're sure the wait will be worth it! I tried out the early access version when it first launched and thought it was a pretty good port of the game - it ran well on my phone and the visuals were great. However, I'm not much of a Battle Royale gamer so I didn't continue playing it then. This upcoming soft launch gives me a new reason to pick it up again. Stay tuned for more news and updates on Apex Legends Mobile!

Two months ago, the Malaysian Apex Legends esports scene reached a new high when Bunnyh0p and his crew (grApe) won the Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) Winter Circuit 2020 Playoffs APAC South. Since there is little coverage of Malaysian Apex Legends pro players, it is our pleasure to announce that we'll be hosting a special live stream with Learning from the pros: Bunnyh0p, featuring the man himself!
To be held this Thursday (27 May), the eGG Network exclusive live stream will see Bunnyh0p streaming Apex Legends on our Facebook page, with our eGGsteemed writer, soupykambing, joining in the fun and "interrogating" him on how to play like an Apex Legends professional player, as well as how one can get involved in the Apex Legends esports scene.
If you're looking to climb your ranks and reach Predator or want to go pro in Apex, this is one eGG Network live stream that you wouldn't want to miss.
Catch Learning from the pros: Bunnyh0p this Thursday (27 May) at 9PM (GMT +8) LIVE on the eGG Network Facebook page.
The Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) Winter Circuit 2020 Playoffs concluded over the weekend, crowning five regional ALGS champion teams across North and South America, EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa), and APAC North and South. It's in the APAC South region that team grApe won their first ever Apex Legends championship. With three of its members from Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia, they're truly the pride of Southeast Asia.
Here are the players that make up team grApe:
Panggau Noel "BunnyH0p" Uthan Chuat - Wraith/meta main | In-game leader (Malaysia)
Thoriq Sultan "BigzzyX" Hidayat - Gibraltar | Support (Indonesia)
Sila "KzyyX" Akepadcha - Bloodhound | Scout (Thailand)
Team grApe's winning final match was nothing short of intense and overwhelming. "The odds of us winning were next to none, because we had bad positioning. Winning the match was the last thing on our mind," BunnyH0p recalled, so they focused on gathering kills and placement points instead of winning. However, after multiple successful encounters, they soon realised they still had a chance to win, because "the ring favoured our side." Thus, they switched their mindsets once more and played for the win, resulting in "You are the Apex champions!"
The first thing that BunnyH0p did to celebrate the team's victory was calling his parents, who were watching his stream competing in the tournament. "It might not be a celebration with confetti and cakes. but hearing my parents say that they were proud of me is the highlight of the celebration," the part-time Facebook Gaming streamer said, adding that his family has been rooting for him since the start of his esports journey.
"The first thing that I’ll do with my prize money is to treat my family dinner." He'll also be investing in building a gaming PC dedicated to streaming, as well as donating some of his winnings to those in need. "My parents taught me to always share one's good fortune with others."
Though BunnyH0p has been playing Apex Legends competitively since early last year, team grApe (short for "great apes") was formed only three weeks before the ALGS Winter Circuit Playoffs. The trio are just a bunch of good friends who wanted to have fun and try their luck in the tournament. It was KzyyX who first mentioned needing a team to compete for the Winter Circuit, to which BunnyH0p suggested teaming up while inviting another mutual friend BigzzyX to complete grApe.
With little time to prepare for the series, they trained by playing ranked games and participating in weekly GLL Community Cups. "I would not have won if it weren't for KzyyX and BigzzyX, the support of my followers, and most important of all, the blessings from my friends and family," expressed the 25-year-old ("actually 17, wink wink"), who only got top 10 spots in the Finals ... until now.
Team grApe will be continuing their esports journey in the ALGS Championship 2021 (APAC South), slated to begin 22 May. "We'll prepare for the ALGS Championship 2021 the same way we did for the Playoffs, but this time with more time on our hands, we'll be training more too."
The PUBG Global Invitational.S (PGI.S) is on break this week, with a special event titled PGI.S Survival Tournament taking place instead. All 32 teams will be split into eight groups of four squads, and face off in a drastically shrinking and more painful Circle that shortens matches to around 13 minutes. Though cash prizes will be rewarded to the top 4 teams, they won’t count towards their Main Event standings.
Catch the PGI.S 2021 Survival Tournament from tonight onwards (5 - 7 March) at 6PM LIVE on eGG Network TV, as well as Twitch and YouTube, before regular matches continue on Tuesday (9 March) at the same time.
