Apex update 1.81 has dropped and is live from the 22nd of September.

It comes after many players have complained and had issues with faulty servers. Players are either lagging, rubber-banding or in some cases just being completely disconnected. Many are growing more and more frustrated with Respawn‘s seeming lack of care for its games. Considering Titanfall 2 was recently hacked, and Apex has a notorious reputation with lagging servers.

Nonetheless, we hope that that Apex update 1.81 can help solve some of the issue at hand.
