Crashing almost every game without error. Just freezes for 5-10secs then crashes, no errors.
Win 10, with game also on SSD
Game is crashing EVEN MORE after the update.
Screen freezes for 5 seconds, then the game closes to desktop with no error message. Tried everything from forums to reddit: revert drivers, update drivers, lower graphics, fresh uninstall, repair, etc. Nothing worked.
Specs: FX 6300, R7 260x, 8GB RAM, Windows 10 Pro (64 bits).

There were some comments in previous pages(4-6) regarding a fix that required changing VRAM usage down, and of course settings down. It worked for me.
I was myself experiencing a crash on startup with no error message, interrogation of the error logs and assistance from Xane at EA support, highlighted the issue was in reference to a 2d Texture error and bad_module. I presume this is in relation to the graphical nature of the main menu of the game once loaded.
A solution to the problem was to change the "r5apex" launcher in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Apex" to "Disable fullscreen optimisations" i found that this setting against either the origin launcher or the easyanticheat launcher did not yield any results.
To do this,
-Navigate to your C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Apex folder, (Or wherever you may have installed the game).
-Locate the "r5apex" application exe.
-Right click on the aforementioned file and go to "Properties".
-Click on the "Compatibility" tab at the top.
-Towards the bottom of the form set "Disable Fullscreen Optimisations" to TRUE, (With a tick).
This may launch your game in a windowed format, you can change this once you've launched.
I hope this helps someone out there.
What FINALLY WORKED: I am still running on Nvidia Driver 417.71, CPU and GPU are overclocked (again) and ingame settings are set mid to high. What finally stopped me from crashing was that i first of all changed my game properties for Apex --- click the settings "wheel" in origin launcher and click game properties: than uncheck the Origin in game setting + go to advanced settings and just add: +fps_max 60 (iam now at 100) depending on ur system.
After this my game crashed "only" in a few games but it still crashed without error...
NOW: Yesterday evening i followed the tipp of another user and instead of limiting the frames within the Apex advanced settings (via origin) i downloaded RivaTuner to cap my frames:
limited my frames to 100 (now 144). I played the whole day now without any crashes what so ever!
