Released just over a month ago, Apex Legends has taken over the battle royale genre, amassing over 50 million downloads since its release. Banking off the game’s popularity, the live streaming platform Mixer has created two new features to highlight its Apex Legends streamers.
Unlike Twitch, Mixer features its own set of streams, called HypeZone, to highlight its users’ streams. The feature pulls streams from only a handful of games, including PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite, to showcase the games’ top streamers in one place.
Mixer revealed in a blog post Tuesday it had partnered with Respawn Entertainment and EA to launch a HypeZone for Apex Legends. To celebrate the channel’s release, Mixer is running a MixPot sweepstakes to handout 200,000 Starter Packs to viewers who tune in over the course of the week.
HypeZone scans games in search of “key moments,” according to Mixer’s information page, to choose which streamers to feature. Streamers who meet a short list of requirements will have a chance at getting their streams featured on the Apex Legends HypeZone stream.
Alongside the Apex Legends HypeZone channel, Mixer announced its newest feature—HypeZone leaderboards. The leaderboards make their debut with the Apex Legends HypeZone release and will allow users to track the wins and kills for the top 10 streamers featured on the channel each week.
With the new leaderboards, Mixer will look to run weekly competitions to give out prizes for those who top the channel’s charts. More information on the competitions will be released with the upcoming weeks.
