Hello dear Apex Legends developers!!
After watching the stream, and playing horrible Battle Royale games I was really looking forward to play this game! In fact I was super hyped!!
I downloaded the game right away after the announcement, trying to stream the game, but sadly after booting up the game and trying the training I get a crash to desktop every time!!
Titanfall 2 runs like a dream on my pc, above 60fps easy so I hoped that this would run similar with a adapted Source/Titanfall engine.
Please fix this crash to desktop!! I would LOVE to show my support but the game just wont run on my computer!?
My system specifications ( slightly older but runs new games like Resident Evil 2 at 60fps as well high settings 1080p ):
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T @ 3.6GHZ
Geforce 1060GTX 3GB
Is this an SSE 4.1 issue? Sometimes a line of code is used that this CPU doesn't know how to interpret. I had a similar issue with Claybook on Steam.
Is there a crash file I could add to help?
Solved! Go to Solution.
We appreciate your patience while this was brought to EA and Respawn's attention.
Apex Legends cannot run on PCs using an AMD Phenom (or older) processor. We’re sorry if this means you can’t play with your current PC (trust us, we want you to play the game as much as you do). For information about the minimum and recommended PC requirements, please check out our article here (https://www.ea.com/games/apex-legends/about/pc-system-requirements).
Perhaps because it's not fully live yet the backend resources aren't all connected...? Try again after the full/final announce @ 12pm PT

Same, it must be the cpu missing SSE instructions.
AMD Phenom II X4 965 (same as you, missing the same instructions)
AMD HD 7870
Windows 7 64 bit
Since this was Source you wouldn't expect this problem to arise, a lot of old machines that are capable to run this game will be missing out and they are a hefty.
~~back to fortnite~~
Titanfall 2 ran great by the way, 60 fps at 1080!
Well EA has been good to us Phenom users in the past. I believe they fixed Mass Effect Andromeda which had the same issue I believe.
I really REALLY hope that they will fix this! PLEASE EA IM SO EXCITE TO PLAY THIS!
