As Apex Legends approaches its third season and its second series of ranked play, Respawn has indicated that they are putting more eggs into the competitive basket going forward. Respawn announced the rewards for the first series of ranked play during the $500k Preseason Invitational in Krakow.
Several high profile esports teams are at the Preseason Invitational, including NRG Esports, Natus Vincere, TSM, Virtus.pro, Team Secret, Fnatic, G2, Sentinels, and more.
With a new focus on improving the competitive aspect of their battle royale title, we can expect Respawn to offer more rewards for its ranked play in future series.
Season 3 is set to start in October, when a new series of Ranked Play will also presumably start up, with even more rewards.
