EA Announces Apex Legends Global Series Year 4

Apex Legends esports owes its success to the global community that supports it. The combined efforts of viewers, players, teams, creators, and staff have shaped the ALGS into what it is today. Reflecting on Year 3, the ALGS witnessed a 19% YoY increase in participation and a staggering 47.9 million hours in Total Watch Time, marking a 22% YoY growth.
