Electronic Arts and Respawn have announced the Apex Legends Preseason Invitational, a large scale esports tournament featuring the largest collection of competitive talent ever for an Apex Legends event.
The event will be held from September 13 to 15 in Kraków, Poland. Eighty three-player teams from around the world will compete in a bracketed tournament for a prize pool of $500,000.
The Apex Legends Preseason Invitational is being set up as a double-elimination tournament. In each round, a team’s performance in a set of matches will determine whether they continue in the winners’ bracket, fall to the losers’ bracket, or are eliminated from the tournament until the final 20 teams compete for the title.
EA says that they will share more details on how to watch the tournament or attending the event in-person as a spectator in a subsequent announcement.
