“We continue to explore all the entertaining ways both players and spectators can experience Apex Legends and look forward to bringing this event to life. (sic)”
A total of 80 teams will be invited worldwide to enter the double elimination tournament.
They will battle until 20 teams remain, with the 60 players left with money on offer ranging from $4,800 for last place to $105,000 for first place.
On top of that there is the Apex Predator prize, worth $8,000 for those with the most eliminations in the finals.
In order to enter the game, players must apply for an official invitation from EA, which can be obtained via email.
The big cash tournament comes after 15-year-old Jaden Ashman, from Essex, England, won $2.25 million (£1.8 million) by coming second in the ‘Fortnite World Cup’ final on Sunday (28.07.19) – the major rival title to ‘Apex Legends’.
