This particular error has been persistent over the past few months within the Apex community. Based on various community sources the error seems to be linked either to a corrupted saved profile data folder but could equally be tied to an issue that the game has with your graphics card. Despite there not being a clear fix there are still some common solutions you can try that can fix it.

Solution 1: Update your Graphics Driver

First check to make sure that your graphics drivers are updated to the latest version. Many game errors occur due to outdated graphics drivers and this one is no different.

How to find your Nvidia Graphics Driver

  • In the search bar type “device manager” and enter the program
  • Click on “display adapters” and note the name of your graphics card
  • Go to “www. https://www.geforce.com/drivers
  • Fill out the tabs in the Nvidia Driver search engine based on your graphics card
  • Download and install the driver it presents you with
  • Restart your computer and check if the error still persists

How to find your AMD Graphics Driver

  • In the search bar type “device manager” and enter the program
  • Click on “display adapters” and note the name of your graphics card
  • Go to “ https://www.amd.com/en/support
  • Fill out the tabs in the AMD Driver search engine based on your graphics card
  • Download and install the driver it presents you with
  • Restart your computer and check if the error still persists

Solution 2: Run Apex Legends as an Administrator

Windows has a second administrative function that allows you to run applications in administrator mode. This mode is used to allow an application to access restricted sections of your device. For most programs the administrator mode is not needed but sometimes certain processes within an application are halted by windows because they attempt to access files which are restricted by the operating system. This can cause various errors to occur. Allowing your game’s .exe administrative privileges will usually fix these errors.

  • Enter your search bar and type “Apex Legends”
  • Right-click the Apex Legends icon and select “go to file location”
  • Right-click your Apex Legends.exe file and click on properties
  • Under the Compatibility tab check the box next to Run as Administrator
  • Run Apex Legends to see if the error persists

Solution 3: Verify Game Files

There is always the chance that a new update or third party software has corrupted your game files, if this is the case then repairing your game files can help solve the issue.

  • Open the Origin Launcher
  • Enter “My Game Library”
  • Right-click on Apex Legends and then click Repair
  • Wait for the repair process to finish and then restart your computer
  • Run Apex Legends to see if the error persists

Conclusion

If the engine error still persists then try to re-install the game. You can also try reverting your PC to an earlier state using the system restore program; this will return your device to an earlier version where you may not have had the error. Also be sure to check out the various online communities that search for specific fixes which might address your devices build and configurations more accurately.
