Apex Legends is the hot new topic in the battle royale conversation, and Respawn has just released a brand new patch for the game on all platforms. Don’t expect any new modes like that Survival mode rumor doing the rounds though; this is all about fixing crash issues for the game.
Firstly, the patch for Apex Legends fixes two issues on the PS4. The patch fixes a crash that occurred when pressing a button early in the loading process, and also fixes an issue with GPU hangs on the platform.
On PC, PS4, and Xbox One, the patch addresses several more issues. Firstly there’s been a fix for the bug which caused players to sometimes move incredibly slowly after being revived. There’s also a fix for Mirage’s ultimate ability causing crashes, and a fix for Gibraltar’s Epic skins causing crashes on Xbox One.
What’s not in the patch is any of the upcoming features for Apex Legends that were data mined from the game earlier in the week. There was evidence of a “Survival” mode, where NPCs would spectate and cheer players on, as well as a replay system and new cosmetics. All of these features are unconfirmed by EA and Respawn at the time of writing.
There's a ton to get to grip with in the early goings of Apex Legends, which has taken the world by storm.
