Just downloaded season 7 and noticed that all the colors are washed out. I just finished playing season 6 and colors were perfect. I am using a Sony 900e tv to to play with an HDMI connection. I am having to increase all contrast, color, and saturation on the TV just so the game is kind of playable, but all other games look horrible due to the tv settings. I've tried deleting the game and reinstalling it but that didn't fix it.  Please help

Washed out Colors Only in Game

★★ Novice

Playing on Xbox and having major problems with the colors being completely washed out. Im playing on a Sony 900e tv and I've never had this issue before in previous seasons. I've read I'm not the only one with this issue. No settings have been changed from season 6. I completely uninstalled and reinstalled it but still had the same issue.  I have had to mess with the contrast, brightness, colors and saturation on the tv just so it looks playable. but all other games are looking horrible due to settings. Hopefully someone has insight on this.

 

Thanks

Was having the same problem and was super annoyed, but found out it was not the Apex game, but my TV. Also not sure if they fixed something yesterday... annyway I found out my Samsun TV settings got reset when Season 7 launched... not sure how. Noticed the Gamma and color were not as I left them last time I customized them for the game... lucky me I had screenshots of how I had them and now all is back to normal!

 

Hope this helps

Also as someone else stated, un-checking the HDR 10 checkbox on the Video settings on the console, fixed the issue right away because my TV would go back to the previous settings.

 

So I guess it totally hs to do with something changing on the game with HDR 10 on the last update. But it is not something bad it is actually better, we just did not know what was going on.

 

So either uncheck the HDR 10 to go back to your previous video settings or leave it on (better) and just check/tweak them again (check gamma and contrast) now the game looks amazing
