Apex Legends is hosting a Twitch Rivals tournament to give competitive players a chance to qualify for their TwitchCon San Diego event and fans can watch along as the action unfolds. 

The tournament is taking place across two different days of competition, and is running between August 28 to 29, bringing together over 100 streamers from both North America and Europe.

With a place at the TwitchCon San Diego tournament up for grabs, which has a whopping $500,000 prize pool, players are competing to get as many eliminations as possible in order to qualify – and some have already qualified. 

Twitch RivalsHere’s a simple tournament breakdown for the Road to San Diego Twitch Rivals tournament.

How to watch Apex Legends Twitch Rivals

Teams collect points for finishing in first place in matches just as equally as the squads who picked up the most eliminations, and that point scoring system works out the most productive teams across eight games. 

Prizes for both achievements is also the same, with successful teams picking up $625 for winning matches or getting the most kills in a single game. While this prize pool might seem small compared to other esports, let’s not forget that this is still in qualifying. 

If you would like to follow the action as it unfolds, it starts at 11pm BST on August 29 (6pm EST, 3pm PT, and 8am AEST on August 30 ). The tournament will go live on the Twitch Rivals channel below.

The second day of Twitch Rival’s Apex Legends Road to Twitchcon tournament saw two North American powerhouse teams qualify for next month’s $500,000 tournament.

It didn’t come as much of a surprise that NRG’s Ace, dizzy, and Mohr stamped their ticket to San Diego, and they will be accompanied by Sentinels’ Zombs, Telen, and SENOXE1. 

The $500,000 Apex Legends tournament at TwitchCon is already shaping up to be a must-watch event, considering the caliber of players that will be competing.

As always, we will bring you complete coverage of the competition when it kicks off.

Apex Legends cosplayer takes Horizon outfit to new heights

An Apex Legends cosplayer has stunned fans of Respawn’s BR by bringing Horizon to life, ensuring the Season 7 legend has never looked so real. 

The Apex Legends community has an incredible connection with Respawn’s source material, regularly sharing artwork, videos and cosplays inspired by the world and characters.

Horizon cosplays are obviously still fairly new, given that the Scottish legend was only added with Season 7. The Gravitational Manipulator has brought new levels of verticality to the Olympus map, thanks to her Gravity Lift, Spacewalk and Black Hole abilities.

As far as aesthetics go, Horizon is known for her spacesuit theme. Her iconic ginger hair protrudes out the top of her suit. It’s an awesome look, simultaneously cool and terrifying to see coming towards you in-game.

Horizon’s abilities give incredible movement options.

One cosplayer, though, took on the challenge and, with some incredible skill, came out looking exactly like the legend herself.

Sosenka (@itlookslikekilled on Instagram) shared her Horizon look on December 4, stunning her followers and the Apex community alike. She has previously shared a Loba cosplay, but many agreed that her Horizon look was even more impressive.

The white suit is complete to perfection, with the goggles and arm bands even down to a tee. At the time of writing, it sits at just shy of 9,000 likes.

The look was so good that it even drew the attention of Elle Newlands – the voice actress behind the Season 7 legend.

She said: “I stan, you stan, we all stan for the #Horizon Cosplay Queen!” 

Horizon, despite being fairly new to the game, has taken well to the Olympus map, currently sitting in our A-Tier in our legend rankings. Her pick rates are fairly high, and abilities incredibly useful. Cosplays as good as this only make us want to use her more.
