On Thursday, November 30, Apex Legends unveiled its plans for the Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) Year 4. As revealed, a total of 12 ALGS partner teams will receive financial support from the tournament organiser as well as unique opportunities to engage with the community.
The ALGS Year 4 programme aims to grow the Apex Legends esports scene. It has been in place since ALGS Year 1, with many esports organisations taking part in it over the years.
For the upcoming season, Respawn and Electronic Arts will provide the partnered teams with resources to host team booths at all ALGS events. With that, the organisers aim to create a better competitive Apex Legends experience for the teams and fans.
Moreover, Respawn and EA promised to create more fan-engaging opportunities, which will be developed in collaboration between the companies and the esports teams.
Senior Director and Comissioner for the ALGS, John Nelson, commented on the news.
“Our competitors and participating esports organisations are foundational to our success. We’re excited to innovate with our 12 partner teams to find new paths to prosperity.”
“We also remain committed to working with all invested organisations around the world to build a sustainable ecosystem and deliver amazing experiences to our fans.”
ALGS 4 Partner Program Welcomes 12 Teams
For Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) Year 4, Respawn and Electronic Arts partnered with 12 Apex Legends esports teams, including Alliance, DarkZero, Disguised, FaZe Clan, FURIA, LG Chivas, Moist Esports, OpTic Gaming, Riddle, TSM, XSET, and Fnatic.
The teams were selected based on several factors, which include past success in ALGS and their commitment to growing the Apex Legends community.
In the past, the ALGS programme has been used by Respawn and EA to collect feedback from the partnered team and give the organisations the tools to help shape and improve the Apex Legends esports scene.
First introduced in 2019, the ALGS is the top-level global tournament for Apex Legends. The series consists of the preseason qualifiers and two splits, which feed into the season-culminating ALGS Championship.
The ALGS Year 4 will feature a $4 million prize pool, and it’ll welcome Chinese Apex Legends teams for the first time in its history. On the other side, South America was removed the the Pro League and will instead compete in the SA Challenger Circuit.
ALGS Year 4 has already begun with the preseason qualifiers. The first split is set to begin in January 2024.
