As announced in advance, the ALGS NA Split 1 Playoffs is one of five separate online tournaments, with the top 20 teams from the Split 1 Regular Season in each region competing in a Match Point series.

The Split 1 Playoffs for NA will also debut the Multiview feature, which is said to give viewers "exponentially greater control over how they consume" ALGS matches.

Viewers on the official PlayApex Twitch channel will reportedly have the option to watch the event on two to four split-screen windows using a Command Center functionality tool for multiple viewpoints, with the ability to choose which teams and players to watch and listen to their in-game audio. 

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.
