The Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) Split 1 Playoffs started on 15th January and will conclude with the North American division on Sunday, 23rd January 2022. The tournament boasts a massive USD 1 million prize pool and, although traditionally held as a LAN event, has been pushed into an online format due to Omicron.

While esports enthusiasts will miss the vibrancy of the offline event, developers Respawn Entertainment did note the following: "Experience everything, from the drop to looting, every strategic rotation, every clean wipe, every clutch play, every kill, and every final circle through the eyes of the players you choose to watch. This is the ALGS like you've never seen it before."
