Restart Apex Legends or your console

The first solution that you should try is to close the Apex Legends application before turning it back on. Restarting the game should ensure that you no longer encounter this issue when hopping into a match.

If you still see the ‘Problem Processing Game Logic’ error message pop up after logging into the game, then you can also try restarting your console. This solution has proven successful with players in the past.

Check for Apex Legends updates

This error might also appear if you are currently not playing Apex Legends with the latest patch installed. So, you’ll need to check if there are any pending updates to download onto your system.

While the game hits console players with a notification about pending updates, you can still try checking the Apex Legends page in the store. On PC the Origin launcher automatically downloads updates but Steam requires you to check for them.

Here’s how to check for updates on Steam:

  1. Open Steam
  2. Visit your Library
  3. Select Apex Legends
  4. Click the Update button if it’s there
  5. Wait for the update to finish downloading

If you have a spare account then you can try this solution and see if the error message persists. Otherwise, you can create another Apex Legends account to switch to before logging back into your main one.
