Apex Legends remains one of the most exciting futuristic battle royale games that people can play without spending a dime. The game works for free for numerous platforms, including the major consoles and Windows PCs that are powerful enough, as well as Android and iOS devices.
About three weeks ago, the devs from Respawn Entertainment released update 2.39 (PS5 version 1.000.053) on all the available platforms that the game can run. Thanks to MP1ST, we can have a good look at what the new update brings for Apex Legends players:
- Damage radius of Energy Barricade is a bit larger than indicated by VFX
- Players can spectate others as they respawn
- Break downs referencing FS_CheckAsyncRequest when loading into a map
- [Ballistic] Crash after swapping primary weapon into a sling and rapidly equipping after entering TDM/Control
- [Xbox] Game crashing due to console language not being supported
- Bullet tracer VFX looks offset when strafing
- Playing at 165+ FPS could trigger stuttering during some gameplay scenarios
- Legends could rotate when exiting a Trident
FIXES IN PROGRESS:
- [DX11] Nvidia Reflex appears greyed out
- Button prompts may not look summary/death screen, including the report button – but buttons still function correctly!
- Some players finding Detected Data Mismatch error
- EAC error with Linux/Steam Deck
- [Ranked] Button mashing during rank-up animation causes crash from time to time
- S18 Masters badge doesn’t have white diamond details
- [Conduit] “Matulog ka na lang” quip incorrect
The new 2.39 update for Apex Legends will occupy 280MB on PS5 consoles.
In case you want to play Apex Legends on your PC, you must keep in mind that it’s recommended to have installed a processor such as Ryzen 5 CPU or something similar, 8 GB of RAM memory, and a graphics card such as AMD Radeon™ R9 290 or NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 970.
Also, Apex Legends demands 56GB of free storage space in order to run on your PC.
