Apex Legends gets big 1.1.3 update

This addresses several issues like audio, Intel CPU crashes, Lifeline's banner on PS4, hit detection, and more.

Apex Legends has been going strong ever since its surprise launch back in February, and now Respawn has revealed that we've just got some sizeable changes, including addressing audio issues that players have been reporting.

This includes sounds dropping out or being missed and distorted, with improvements being made to the code and content hopefully fixing the issues. This should also make the audio issues appear less often for others.

The volume of enemy footsteps close to the player will also be increased, while overall game volume from the character select screen to the end of the drop sequence will be lowered. For full patch notes on all the nitty-gritty of the audio side of things though, head this way.

Hit detection is also another area Respawn is focusing on, trying to stomp out a lot of cases where it's been wrong. This new patch will also track bullet damage logic, meaning that Respawn can track the issues easier in the future, although they did add that these can be caused by simple connectivity issues. That's why they've made the network problem indicator icon in the top right of the screen more picky about the connection quality, showing up more often now.

Lifeline's Pick Me Up banner has also proved to be a bit of an issue on PS4, and after temporarily disabling it the fix is now in place and will be enabled once more with this patch.

Lastly, those on PC with Intel CPUs might have noticed frequent crashes, which is something also being addressed, as Respawn has notified Intel about the issue. What's more is we're also getting a workaround to avoid crashing by changing instructions used by one function.

For more on the specific changes check out the patch notes. Are you a regular Apex Legends player?
