Apex Legends is an battle royale first-person hero shooter video game. It is free-to-play. It was published by Electronic Arts and was developed by Respawn Entertainment.

In the game, Legends come together to compete in a bloodsport called the Apex Games which are organized by a group called the Mercenary Syndicate. They battle for money and fame. Like in most battle royal games, the goal is to be the last team standing at the end of the game.

There is an eSports tournament called the Apex Legends Global Series where players compete for $5 million.[4]
