The Apex Legends Global Series Championship has been in full swing since the start on June 1. As well as the community-created loading screens that are up for grabs, Respawn Entertainment has decided to put even more Apex Legends Twitch Drops up for people to obtain in the final days of the ALGS Championships.

There has been a lot of hype around the ALGS Championship in the past few weeks, with Respawn even dropping an Animal Kingdom skin bundle with all the proceedings adding to the huge prize pool.

Although Apex Legends may be in the middle of a “dry spell,” players can tune into the Championship and earn themselves some exclusive in-game content.

Apex Legends Season 9: Legacy introduced a whole new cosmetic category called “Community Created,” which further involves those who love the game so much.

Six fan-made loading screens will be available for players to acquire through the ALGS Championship starting from June 1.

Over on Apex Legends’ blog on the EA website, Respawn Entertainment detailed exactly how players can get their hands on these loading screens, as well as the schedule for their release.

All the Apex Legends Twitch Drops available

Loading screens will be available one at a time over a Tuesday to Tuesday, week-long span.

Each of the Drops will be linked to ten different Twitch streamers week to week. Be sure to keep an eye out on the official Apex Legends Twitter account for who to watch each week. Mark your calendar for the following dates where the drops will be available:

Apex Legends devs finally fixing frustrating stuttering issues

Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that a fix is coming for the stuttering issues plaguing Apex Legends on PC.

Respawn confirm fix for Apex Legends stuttering issue

Stuttering issues can often make playing Apex Legends at a high frame rate feel much less fun, but Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that a fix for this problem is on its way.

One advantage to playing games on PC is that you get to enjoy them at a decently high frame rate. While that sounds fun, it also comes with its own set of problems, as Apex Legends fans have to deal with stuttering issues.

This is when the high frame rate causes the game to be choppy, ruining your accuracy. As a result, players often end up lowering the FPS. Now, Respawn have assured fans that this will soon be resolved.

Apex Legends Season 9 roster

Apex Legends fans were discussing the “microstutter bug” on Reddit, and this gained a response from Respawn’s Lead Software Engineer Samy ‘ricklesauceur’ Duc.

One player asked if there was any way to get past the game’s 300 FPS cap, and another user advised against trying this. The game engine has a bug in it which causes a microstutter when you reach 180 FPS.

The developer then confirmed that this issue “should be gone after [the] next patch.” This fix will allow players on higher-end rigs to enjoy smoother gameplay than before.

Respawn finally fixing Apex Legends stuttering issues

The devs have been focused on fixing multiple in-game issues ever since the Legacy update went live. There have also been upcoming changes teased for Evo Shields recently.

Once this patch arrives, PC gamers should be able to get past the 180 FPS mark without encountering stuttering issues. There’s currently no date given for when we should expect to see this update patch.

This fix seems to be exclusive to PC, and players experiencing stutter issues on console will have to wait for a wider patch.

Apex Legends devs confirm Mirage Voyage ship POI won’t return

Respawn’s Lead Game Designer Daniel Klein has confirmed that the fan-favorite Mirage Voyage POI won’t be coming back to Apex Legends.

Mirage's Voyage won't return in Apex Legends

The Mirage Voyage is one of the most popular POIs in Apex Legends, and Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that it probably won’t return to the battle royale anytime soon.

The Apex Legends Legacy update brought a plethora of brand-new content like the Arenas mode and Valkyrie. A ton of fans are playing Apex Legends this season, and they have their own favorite map areas.

The Mirage Voyage ship was first added to the game in Season 3 and has become a fan-favorite since then. However, Respawn have confirmed that we won’t see this POI return to the battle royale.

The next Ranked split in Apex Legends will bring the action to Olympus, so players were excited about seeing this POI again. Respawn Lead Designer Daniel Klein then confirmed on Reddit that Mirage Voyage won’t be coming back.

“Oh the Voyage is CRASHED crashed,” said the developer. “I think it’s down for good.” This came as a huge disappointment to fans that wanted the ship to be a recurring location the battle royale’s maps.

This is reminiscent of when Respawn retired Kings Canyon’s Skull Town which was another fan-favorite POI that was blown up for Season 5.

There have been hints that we might see the arrival of another similar ship in the game one day, but we won’t see the Mirage Voyage POI take flight again anytime soon.

We’ll just have to wait and see if Respawn Entertainment have any plans to introduce something else to fill the void left by the ship’s departure from the battle royale. Only time will tell if they do intend to release something.
