Electronic Arts mentioned it will tap players to crowdfund the prize pool for the Apex Legends Global Series Championship to as a great deal as $3 million.
The prize pool will rise from $1 million based on fan purchases of unique bundles in the free of charge-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends, which has been downloaded more than one hundred million instances.
The series starts on May 22. Starting today, new item bundles will come to be readily available in the Apex Legends retailer: the Mechameleon, Boared to Death, Wild Speed, and Silverback bundles, and an all-encompassing bundle named Animal Kingdom.
For every single bundle bought, EA will add $5 to the prize pool, and for every single Animal Kingdom bundle sold, $20 will go to the prize pool. EA will cap the prize contribution at an further $2 million above the $1 million quantity. The plan will run from now till June 1.
Much like the crowdfunded prize pool for Valve’s Dota 2, this assists fans get invested in the championship series. EA considers this to be an experiment.
Apex Legends is on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Steam, and Origin for Computer.
