One of South Africa's most consistent esports series returns for its third full year, as we are thrilled to announce the #MythicRoyale for 2022.

Fortnite and Apex Legends will be rotating throughout the course of the year, with players battling for their share of a total of R150,000 in cash up for grabs. Each series will feature a confirmed prize pool, but through a series of community goals, the prize pool may increase. These goals will vary for each series, so keep an eye on the Mythic Royale landing page and social media for more on them as they are revealed.

Alongside the cash prize pool, will be more opportunities for all ACGL registered users to win some amazing proucts thanks to the Mythic Royale sponsors. Each month will feature at least R35,000 in product giveaways via the Loot system and other methods.

As with 2021, this year's Mythic Royale is brought to life by our amazing partners at Antec, Crucial, MSI and Redragon.

The 2022 season kicks off with Apex Legends, which will run from April and into May. Fortnite will be next, kicking off in mid-May and running into June. However, Fortnite players will still have additional opportunities to compete for cash before the first Fortnite series kicks off.


Registrations are now open for the Mythic Royale for Apex Legends. Four qualifiers will be hosted with the top five trios per qualifier heading to the series finale. The prize pool starts at a confirmed R15,000 cash, with an additional R10,000 allocated to the community goals.

The Fortnite Mythic Royale series will start on 15 May. Watch out for further announcements via our site and social media. However, each month we will have R3,000 cash up for grabs for other Fortnite cups.

Each month, Fortnite competitors will have two cash cups featuring R500 cash guaranteed. Alongside this, R2,000 cash a month has been allocated to a Solo Rank Cup. This will see the top ranked players in our Elo ranking leaderboard for Fortnite invited to compete for the cash up for grabs. To secure your place in the rankings, compete more and win more via the cups and matchfinders available.


Registrations are now open for Mythic Royale, and entry is free. Remember that for every match completed via the ACGL site, players will be rewarded with Embers. These Embers can be used to enter Mythic loot random giveaways. The more you enter, the higher your chances of winning. Each match completed also counts towards progress in our Apocalypse season battle pass and the digital rewards on offer.
