Apex Legends PC Performance Review

Apex Legends came out of nowhere, a new free-to-play Battle Royale title that does a lot more than copy the likes of Fortnite, PUBG, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout mode. 

Technologically, and narratively, Apex Legends is part of the Titanfall universe, utilising a customised version of Valve's Source Engine to deliver a large map, a game mode that can accommodate 60 players over 20 three-legend teams and an adaptive resolution scaling technique that allows the game to scale between consoles and ultra-high-end gaming PCs with ease. 

Gameplay-wise Apex Legends is unlike many other Battle Royale titles, employing techniques that make teamplay easy regardless of whether or not you have a mic, allowing PC gamers to click their mouse wheel to notify allies of equipment drops, enemy locations and other useful information.

Unlike other Battle Royales, Apex Legends also features a longer than average time to kill, with armour, and shields allowing engagements to last longer and for players to survive sneaky attacks from behind. Revivals from teammates and respawns from beacons also enable gamers to return to the map after death, adding even more benefits to strong teamwork.   

With this in mind, we can see why Apex Legends has grown in popularity, offering the satisfaction of surviving until the later stages of a match while taking away the quick deaths that cause endless annoyance in some competing titles. When you are shot at in Apex Legends, you will almost always have the time to turn around and face your assailant head-on. 

Today we will be looking at the PC performance of Apex Legends, discussing the game's graphical options, features and what hardware/settings are required to get the game running at a stable 60FPS. We will also be looking at how VRAM amount impacts the game's graphics, and how to get the game running on low-end gaming hardware. The game's graphics take a nosedive if you have a 2GB GPU (seep age 9), you have been warned.
