After tearing it apart on consoles and PC for years, hit battle royale shooter Apex Legends Mobile is coming to iPhones and iPads on May 17, publisher EA confirmed this week.

In fact, it’s been playable in 10 countries since February as EA continued to test and tweak the game in preparation for the global release.

It’s not exactly the same game you’d find on PC and console, of course; has been created specifically for mobile devices by the team behind the successful PUBG Mobile. It has simplified onscreen controls and custom interactions designed to make playing on a touchscreen as easy as playing with a controller or keyboard and mouse.

We’ll see if they actually make it at launch, but in the meantime, I got a chance to play the soft-launch version earlier this year, just as the game started testing through the Australian app store. You can check it out below.

The team behind the hit game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is now working on another beloved fantasy series: The Lord of the Rings.

Announced in a bit of a mystery by EA earlier this week, the new game was described as a “collectible RPG” and a “strategic and socially competitive experience.”


It will also feature “immersive storytelling, turn-based combat, deep collection systems, and a vast roster of characters from across the vast Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit universe,” says EA.

What that means in English is that it will probably be like Galaxy of Heroes: you’ll roam Middle-earth collecting and upgrading a team of heroes drawn from and inspired by the LOTR universe, sending them into team battles to progress. the history.

Heroes of Middle-earth will not be inspired by Peter Jackson movies. Instead, it will be “solely inspired by Middle-earth as described in JRR Tolkien’s literary works,” according to the folks who handle the LOTR brand. So potentially the team behind the game could have a little more creative license with Frodo and the gang.

It won’t have the grim but grimly compelling drama of the Depp vs. Heard, but this week there is some legal drama in the world of mobile gaming. We’ve learned that League of Legends: Wild Rift is suing alleged copycat Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. (Seen on via Reuters).

The App Store has had cloning issues for years, but this one is a bit different. While they are similar, there are many differences between Wild Rift and Bang Bang. You can’t just cut and paste big, complex games like this; they require a lot of work from a lot of people to do and keep up to date. If Bang Bang is determined to be a clone, it’s weirdly impressive.

This is actually the second time League of Legends studio Riot Games has sued Mobile Legends maker Moonton. Riot said in the earlier lawsuit: “Over the years, as Riot updated their video game, Moonton copied it. When Riot updated promotional materials for the game, Moonton copied them. And when Riot released a new trailer, Moonton copied it. This is a critical issue for Riot.” Oh.

What to play this week

The big new game of the week is Dislyte, a very purple and slick-looking futuristic fantasy RPG. It has super-fast squad battles, rhythm-based action sections, and werewolves dressed as if in a metal band among its charismatic cast.

It is made by Lilith Games, the creator of other wildly popular games like Rise of Kingdoms, AFK Arena, and Warpath. Fire up Dislyte and honestly you can skip the opening scenes, which take too long to set up the usual stuff. The world is in danger and you have to save it from the bad guys, who snuck into your band’s performance in a gloomy club in the near future drenched in neon.

Jump into it and you’ll see that it’s all about quick and skillful battles with a squad of heroes that grows as you go. You can go into the details of how to upgrade your heroes, called Espers, and use the right move for the right time, but you can also double your battle speed and defeat a floating robot cupid and a futuristic scarecrow without thinking too much. . a lot, if that’s all you have time for.

It’s all very elegant, too. The setting takes the usual fantasy tropes and throws them into a cyberpunk near future. The soundtrack is also cool. They’ve got a couple of authentic-sounding London rappers there, plus a guy who does a good Kendrick Lamar impression.

Elsewhere on the App Store this week, Apple Arcade subscribers have Goat Simulator+ to play, the crazy viral hit from a few years ago. It has been polished and placed on Apple’s gaming subscription service today, May 13.

And personally, I still play the wonderful word and crossword game Knotwords and the incredibly fun Merge Mansion.

A final shout out, too, to the weird Hush-Crane interactive TV project, which is like a cheesy Netflix thriller you can control. It’s not brilliant, but it’s a fun and impressive tech demo. If you want a glimpse of a weird future where you can control parts of Netflix shows, give it a try.

Until next time!
