Potentially the game’s download got corrupted and the files haven’t installed correctly.

Though thankfully you might not have to uninstall and reinstall the game.

While that could work, you can also use the Repair feature in Origin to fix the game’s files.

Once that has finished up, make sure that Apex Legends is back up to date and you should be set up to go again, hopefully!

One common reason games can cause crashes is if your Graphics card isn’t up to date.

If Apex Legends is trying to use a driver that isn’t there, the game could bug out and cause your PC to crash too.

Updating your graphics card drivers should be fairly easy, and you can find directions for how to do it on the manufacturer’s website!

It could be that your hardware has a problem, be it an out of date Processor or something else.

If Apex Legends isn’t fixed by trying the solutions above, it could be worth making sure the fault isn’t with your PC itself.

Though just be sure the hardware is what’s wrong, you don’t want to waste money on new parts if you don’t have to!
