Building on the inaugural Apex Legends Global Series season last year, Year 2 of the ALGS, created an ecosystem comprised of separate levels of competition for both professional and amateur Apex Legends players with the introduction of the ALGS Pro League and Challenger Circuit in North America, EMEA, APAC South, APAC North, and South America.
Things went past PC players too, as EA enabled Xbox and PlayStation players to participate, bringing a large majority of our players and fans under the same competitive umbrella.
Year 2 of the ALGS will award a $5,000,000 USD total prize pool.
