Apex Legends Joining Esports
Free-to-play Battle Royale massive hit Apex Legends is advancing its venture into the exciting business of organized eSports. Respawn Entertainment revealed today that the game’s upcoming Preseason Invitational is going to happen in September with a total prize pool of $500,000.
The ongoing Apex Legends’ Preseason is a series of competitions which has included the EXP Pro-Am Apex Legends Exhibition in Los Angeles and will recommence this August at the EXP Invitational during X Games, Minneapolis.
The huge prize money, however, is being saved for the recently unveiled Apex Legend Preseason Invitational, which will be launched from 13th-15th September in Krakow, Poland.
According to Respawn, the Preseason Invitational is going to be a double-elimination tournament. With all participating teams beginning in the winners’ bracket. Teams will also play a set number of matches each round, concluding whether they advance in the winners’ bracket, move to the losers’ bracket, or get dropped from the tournament.
The 20 finalist teams will then compete for the crown, all getting a slice of the $500,000 prize pool. The team that finishes in 20th will win $4,800, and that amount steadily increases all the way up to the first place, which grants $105,00 to the victors.
