Apex Legends update 1.90 patch notes: FPS lag fix, client crash & errors
The Apex Legends 1.90 patch update is here and aims to fix the battle royale’s game structure as player reports of dropped frames and buggy clients mount.
Respawn Entertainment have been making Legend balance changes since the Season 12 Defiance patch and it seems like the studio is happy with where things stand. It could be why the devs are focusing on chipping away at the game’s performance issues more than anything else.
The March 1 update is another attempt at quelling some of the biggest issues in Apex Legends, as it concerns FPS drops, as well as what might be causing issues for the title’s program.
This will largely affect console players, but Respawn will also be looking to make improvements in their Apex client that should make for a smoother experience.
