For a couple of years now, gamers have been launching into the multi-faceted landscapes of Apex Legends. Many have triumphed in that time, earning countless Champion designations. Now, Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment want to find out which team are the true champions.
Today, EA and Respawn have announced a new global esports tournament that will pit PC players from over 60 countries against each other for the opportunity to win over $3 million. The tournament is called The Apex Legends Global Series. Here is a taste of what you can expect.
“Competition is at the heart of Apex Legends,” said Vince Zampella, Head of Respawn Entertainment. “We expect that esports will play a big role in the future of Apex Legends and it all starts here, with the Apex Legends Global Series. We look forward to seeing who, out of our millions of players, will become true legends of the arena.”
Registration to compete in the first online event on January 25, 2020, powered by Battlefly, will open in early January. The stages of advancement are as follows:
The competitive journey for many will start with online competition, with competitors potentially advancing to live, regional Challenger Events and global Premier Events. Players will earn Apex Legends Global Series Points for their performances in online and certain live events and those atop the standings will be invited to the four Apex Legends Global Series Majors, the highest competitive live event tier.
The first three Majors will each feature 100 three-player squads from around the world. The fourth Major, the Apex Legends Global Series Championship, is the grand finale. Only the top 60 Apex Legends Global Series teams in the world will be invited to battle for $1 million in prizes and the title of Apex Legends Global Series World Champion.
So long as you meet the age requirements, as well as all the other PC requirements, you’ll be all set to register and compete in January. Win enough and you’ll find yourself with an invitation to compete in the first major live event in Arlington, TX at the Esports Stadium on March 13-15, 2020.
