Team EnVyUs, Rogue, NRG eSports and REUNITED will be among the teams competing at OGN Overwatch APEX Season 1 this week, with each team set to face off against three Korean squads in their respective groups.

Apex will be the first offline LAN where Korean and Western teams compete directly. All four Western teams recently competed at the Overwatch Open, with EnVyUs placing second, Rogue finishing in 3rd-4th, NRG falling in the Top 8 and REUNITED failing to advance out of the group stage.

Each team will compete against each of the other teams in their group in a best-of-three round robin. The Top 2 teams from each group will advance to a single-elimination playoff bracket.

Here's a look at the groups, announced on Tuesday:

Group A Group B Group C Group D
Flash Lux BK Stars T6 LW Blue
Rhinos Gaming Titan Team Kongdoo Uncia Mighty Storm RunAway
Afreeca Freecs Blue MVP Space Lunatic-Hai Team Kongdoo Panthera
Rogue NRG eSports Team EnVyUs REUNITED

OGN Overwatch Apex Season 1 is set to start on Oct. 7, and features a $178,000 prize pool.
