It’s been a while since Apex Legends got an update. Jay Frechette, the Respawn Entertainment’s community manager announced an upcoming update. The update isn’t going to be focused on any new content to the game at all but promises to fix the audio bugs which can be found heavily in the game. Although the update will mainly focus on the audio, Jay Frechette also mentioned that there will be some ”behind-the-scenes tracking of bullet damage logic”.
What this means is the update will fix incorrect hit registrations. This could be linked to the hitboxes of each legend has but there isn’t information regarding that. Later in the post, he stated that this update will not be the solution to all issues about the hit registrations by saying “We expect there will still be some remaining hit registration problems, but with these fixes and diagnostic information, we are better equipped to track them down,”
Since this update is going to be out before Season 2, we can see that Respawn is trying to bring back the reputation of the game. Apex Legends saw a drastic fall after the Season 1 launch due to lack of updates and poor content on the Battle Pass. If things work out the way they want it to be, we may see an overall increase in the active Apex players.
However, with the improvements in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and the start of Season 9 in Fortnite, our favorite battle royale title may experience some hard times catching up to the player’s demands. The launch date of Season 2 may be perfect for Apex Legends. After all, Season 9 of Fortnite will be at its mid-stages and therefore the hype is no longer going to be huge.
Stay tuned to know everything with this update. We will post all the details as soon as its out by Respawn Entertainment!
