Lore[edit | edit source]

Main article: Lore

The Frontier War is over. After decades of conflict between the IMC and the militia founded to fight them, the region of space known as the Frontier can finally see peace.

But liberation can come at a cost: the Frontier worlds were left barren by the war, and promised aid dwindled to nothing. With no way to support themselves, those who remained had no choice but to leave their homes. The brave relocated to the Outlands.

A remote cluster of planets on the fringes of the Frontier, the Outlands are untouched by war and teeming with resources and opportunity. But life is cheap here, and danger lurks around every corner. Its pioneers, explorers, and outlaws used to spend their lives locked in an endless power struggle – now, they settle their differences in the Apex Games, a bloodsport where Legends from all corners of the Frontier compete for money, fame, and glory.

System Requirements[edit | edit source]

Recommended requirements[edit | edit source]

Based on information provided by EA[1]

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7
  • CPU: Intel i5 3570K or equivalent
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 / AMD Radeon R9 290
  • GPU RAM: 8GB
  • HARD DRIVE: Minimum 30 GB of free space

Consider looking at pcgamer's article on tweaking settings for a performance boost[2]

You should target higher frame rates in a fast-paced game like Apex Legends. If you're targeting a solid 60fps 1080p on high settings, I would suggest at least the performance of a RX 580 8GB or GTX 1060 6GB[3] for GPU and at least the performance of a Ryzen 5 2600. or i5 8400[4] for CPU. Note that GPU RAM will bottleneck your system to dip below 60fps at 6 GB of VRAM if you choose an 8GB VRAM budget on the 1060.[5]
