New Apex Legends Patch Addresses Crashes
Respawn Entertainment has released a patch for Apex Legends, its wildly popular battle royale title. The patch, which was detailed on Reddit, is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Generally, it is focused on reducing crashes and addressing gameplay bugs.
Players on Sony’s console shouldn’t have a more stable experience, as Respawn has addressed an issue with GPU hangs and also resolved crashes that happened when a button was pressed in the loading process. An issue where players would occasionally move slower after a revive has also been resolved, as has one that caused crashes because of Mirage’s special ability. Finally, on Xbox One, crashes related to Gibraltar’s Epic skin have been addressed. Take a look at the full patch notes below.

Apex Legends launched on February 4, somewhat unexpectedly. The game has taken the world by storm and hit 25 million players in its first week of availability and, at one point, reached “well over” 2 million peak concurrent players. Of course, Fortnite is still very much the genre leader, with 200 million players and a peak concurrent record of 8.3 million players, but it’s been a very strong start for Apex Legends in a highly competitive genre.
“Apex Legends is a mix of smart shooter ideas that makes for a competitive, team-based game that gets at all the best parts of battle royale while addressing a lot of the weaknesses,” he said. “Respawn’s intense focus on team play makes Apex more than just a worthy addition to the genre; it’s an indicator of where battle royale should go in the future.”
