Respawn Announces Apex Legends Global Series 2020

Respawn Entertainment released Apex Legends back in February and since then, the game has been played by millions of people every month. Attracting 50 million players within its first month, Apex is one of the top battle royale titles in the world. After a few months of its release, the game’s player count started to decrease because of certain reasons. However, it was recently revealed that Apex’s current player count is 70 million. This means that Respawn has made various improvements to their game. And now, it seems like they are planning to improve the game’s esports scene.

Apex Legends Global Series 2020

Since Apex was released, players have been requesting Respawn to host tournaments for it so that they can showcase their skills to the rest of the world. Unlike other battle royale titles like PUBG and Fortnite, Apex’s competitive esports scene is not that great. But Respawn is going to change that soon as they have just announced Apex Legends Global Series 2020. The series is going to begin during the first month of the next year, and it is going to feature a really big prize pool.

The Global Series of Apex Legends is going to be the biggest tournament hosted for the game. Respawn is going to give everyone a chance, therefore teams from over 60 countries are going to try to become the best Apex Legends team in the world. There are going to be a total of 12 live events and teams will have to give their best during it. Respawn’s CEO Vince Zampella claimed that competition is in the hearts of Apex Legends and he believes that this tournament is going to contribute a lot towards Apex’s competitive esports scene.

Prize Pool

Respawn has created a system through which they are going to select players that will participate in the actual tournament. There are going to be various online, regional, and global competitions through which players will earn Global Series points. Those who manage to acquire the most points will get invited to four Apex Legends Global Majors. The tournament will have a total prize pool of $3 million, and the winning team will walk home with the title of Champions and $1 million.

The thing which has left some people annoyed is that the tournament is limited to only PC players, meaning that console players cannot participate in it. It has yet to be revealed whether controllers will be allowed during the tournament. There are some top Apex Legends players and streamers that prefer a controller over a keyboard and mouse, so we will have to wait and see what they are going to do.

Respawn sure is going to give a big boost to Apex’s competitive scene through this upcoming event. The developers are also making various improvements to their game from time to time. Apex is currently on its third season which is soon going to end. Because of this very reason, fans are currently wondering what the next season is going to feature.
