Apex Legends update is unplayable Because of file errors

★★★★ Novice

Apex Legends new update broke my pc, once i updated the game the first time i launched it was an infinite black screen. So i repaired *gasp* but then when i reopened it said that there was a problem with another file (don't need to specify rn because it was a previous problem) I uninstalled then re-downloaded, So next time i opened it ran for a few minutes...before terrible lag spikes and audio cracks before crashing because there were duplicate files interfering. I removed the files and then NOW it says "controller bindings file scrips/keys_controllen_xone.rson was not loaded" Ok i am on pc AND not using controllers. Can i get some help? if so then thank you BTW REPAIRING DOES NOT WORK NOR UNINSTALLING THE don't ask Wink

PC Freeze on Load

★★★★ Novice

Played for about 2 weeks. Now after the splash screen on loading, I get a black screen that never resolves.  Started like 3/22.  I've tried all of the internet tips (deleting temp folders, turning off origin cloud, etc).  Nothing.


On Saturday I deleted the game and reinstalled.  It worked for about 2-3 sessions this weekend.  Sunday night, black screen freeze again and today as well.  I'm not going to reinstall every time I want to play (assuming that would work again).


Just tell me this is a known issue and I'll go away for a few weeks until this stuff gets resolved.
