Nvidia has released the GeForce driver hotfix 436.51 to fix a random flicker gameplay issue for Apex Legends.
Nvidia recently released driver version 436.48. While the update introduced fixes and optimization for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and Asgard’s Wrath, it introduced a screen flickering problem for Apex players.
The hotfix also addresses three other games, including the two latest FIFA games and Star Wars: Battlefront 2. These games will randomly crash to the desktop on some computers.
If you’ve experienced issues with these particular games, you can apply the hotfix at Nvidia’s official website. If not, there’s no need to install the new driver.
This isn’t the first time Nvidia cards had flickering issues with Apex. An update a few months ago caused flickering textures and light artifacts to appear on the map, distracting players.
A thread on Nvidia’s official forum reveals the lengthy extent of the problem. While it’s not a widespread problem, different users have consistently experienced the bug and have sought help wherever they can.
Apex fans likely hope this hotfix will finally nip the problem in the bud. For now, players should try to enjoy playing Crypto in peace before the next problem rolls around.
