Apex Legends’ next patch will focus on improving the game’s audio, as well as address on-going issues about hit registration. It also – sadly, some might say – fixes the bug that lets us stick crap to Gibraltar’s shield.
In a new update on the game’s subreddit, community manager Jay “Jayfresh_Respawn” Frechette outlined what’s next for the free-to-play battle royale. “One of our biggest issues to tackle was improving the audio performance to address issues reported of sounds dropping out, sounds missing for extended time, or distortion for a period of time,” Frechette said (thanks, PCGN). “We have made improvements both in our code and with our content that will hopefully fix these issues for many players, and for others, at least lower the amount and length of time they encounter audio issues.
“We have also addressed some of the other mix issues with the game, including increasing the volume of close proximity enemy footsteps and lowering the overall volume of the game from the character select screen to the end of the drop sequence. We will continue to monitor mix issues and address them as necessary.”
