Respawn Entertainment has just added an update to the PC version of Apex Legends, which specifically focuses on addressing the crash issues.

"The game should now write an apex_crash.txt file to your My Documents folder when it crashes," Jay Frechette, community manager at Respawn, say in a thread on Reddit. "The apex_crash.txt files we got from players had a lot of information that we needed… We had never seen the crash in any of our internal testing before, but now we could finally reproduce the bug and that meant we could find it and fix it."

More updates are scheduled to come out next week. There is no specific information, but Frechette did outline several problems that they are trying to fix. In his own words, those are:

  • "FPS capped to 144: It was the intent to cap to 300 but a bug is keeping it at 144. We're aware and looking into it and I'll provide an update when I can.

  • Hit reg issues: we are aware and testing a fix locally.

  • Audio issues - we've heard the feedback on numerous issues you folks have been reporting. Working with audio guys to address the stuff we can answer next week."

The battle pass for Season 1: Wild Frontier is currently up in store in Apex Legends, alongside Octane – its first new character post-launch. If you want to purchase the battle pass, it’ll set you back 950 Apex Coins (Roughly $9.50 or Rs 660). If you do decide to get it, you’ll gain access to several rewards, including new skins, voice lines, stat trackers, and Apex Coin & XP. Each of these rewards is unlocked by completing challenges to earn XP and level up the battle pass. You can climb as high as 100 levels. The challenges are not as complicated as Fortnite, but completing them will earn you enough Apex Coins to purchase the battle pass of next season.

That is not your only option, though. If you so wish, you can spend Coins on other things, such as the new Legend Octane (although you can unlock him with Legend Tokens as well). This character is all about speed.  His tactical ability allows him to spend health to get a speed boost, while his ultimate creates launch pads that anyone can jump on to propel themselves through the air. To offset the health cost, Octane's passive allows him to recover health over time if he’s not taking fire.
