Apex Legends is a free-to-play Battle Royale game and is giving quite a competition to the likes of Fortnite, PUBG, and Black Ops 4. However, the PC version of Apex Legends is facing problems on Nvidia RTX GPUs.
Nvidia RTX GPU owners are reporting that Apex Legends in constantly crashing for them. While it isn’t clear why the game is crashing but reports suggest that Nvidia driver version 418.81 is the one causing the game to crash.
Also, it’s unclear if Nvidia is aware of the issues. I hope that Nvidia will fix Apex Legends crashing issue for RTX GPUs owners with a driver update.
Speaking of the game, Apex Legends has attracted over 25 million players since its launch. Not only that, the game is also the reason behind EA’s stock to rise again.
EA’s stock saw a significant drop following its recent earnings call. The reason for the drop in EA’s stock was low Battlefield V sales. According to EA, these low Battlefield 5 sales were due to its single-player campaign.
According to EA CEO, Battle Royale was extremely popular in 2018 but, DICE decided to delay the Firestorm mode and focused on the single-player campaign.
However, Respawn Entertainment is also working on a Star Wars game titles “Jedi Fallen Order”. During the earnings call, EA revealed that Jedi Fallen Order gameplay will be revealed soon. EA CEO and CFO got to play the game and both are describing it as spectacular.
With Anthem just around the corner, EA is expecting both Anthem and Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order to succeed. But, EA execs dumping millions worth of stock just a few weeks before Anthem’s launch indicates that things aren’t looking great.
EA executives dumping stocks indicates that they don’t have faith in the game to be successfull. However, I will reserve my judgement until the game is released.
Apex Legends is a free-to-play Battle Royale game developed by Respawn Entertainment for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
