Genshin Impact was the event last year, and before that, it was Among Us that was held.Nevertheless, a first-person shooter mobile game has taken this year’s Game of the Year award, which went to a game of this genre. Among the most popular games on mobile devices this year, Apex Legends Mobile is certainly one of the most popular games out there.
Battle Royale is a highly popular video game that has been available on mobile platforms since May of this year. The game has now received the title of Best Game of the Year on both iOS and Android platforms. Apex Legends Mobile is a mobile game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts (EA), that takes on the battle royale genre in a much similar manner to PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty: Warzone, Fortnite, and a lot more.
Unlike Overwatch, this game comes with the twist of having you play as a specialized character who has an array of unique abilities and personalities, just like Overwatch.In addition to quirks, voicelines, ultimates, costumes, and more, each character also has their own personality. Titanfall, a game only available on PC and consoles, shares its universe with this game, which comes from the same universe as Titanfall.
The game’s desktop version was already quite popular, but now the Google Play Best of 2022 Awards have been awarded to its mobile version as well. Despite competing against major titles such as Diablo Immortal, it won Apple’s iPhone Game Of The Year at the App Store Awards 2022 despite going up against major titles such as Harry Potter.
Nonetheless, Diablo Immortal does deserve praise because, in addition to Rocket League Sidesweep and Catalyst Black, the game also made it to Google Play’s list of honorable mentions.
In large part, Apex’s success can be credited to the recent ban on PUBG Mobile in India, which forced a multitude of players to switch to other battle royale games instead of PUBG Mobile. The Respawn Entertainment Senior Director of Product, Myke Hoff, commented on the matter in a statement that went something like this:
Our servers are located in three major cities in India. The servers were strengthened after BGMI was banned, and we tried to understand what Indian gamers wanted from us. In recent months, we have seen an increase in the number of gamers and we hope that they will stay with us.
