Apex Legends

Version 1.1 of Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends has been released, updating the game with a few appreciated quality of life improvements and fixes for a few minor bugs. However, it also included a game-deleting bug that could reset players’ progress.

Respawn was entirely aware of the bug and worked to fix it, shutting down some of their servers earlier this afternoon to perform maintenance. The studio had also advised players not to purchase or craft any tools until this issue was been resolved.

Thankfully, Respawn resolved the issue, explaining through a Reddit post that some players’ information was moved to the wrong server.

All of the changes were marked in Respawn’s patch notes, seen below:

QUALITY OF LIFE

  • Added the ability to party up with the last squad you played with. After the match you will see buttons in the lobby that display the last two people you played with and can invite them to your squad.

When you head back to the lobby after a match you will see two new buttons that show you the players in your last squad with the option to invite them for another match!

You can choose to allow invites or opt out in the Friends menu.

  • Additional behind-the-scenes improvements for squashing cheaters.

  • Added Mute button during the intro and Legend selection.

  • When using the Report Player button for PC, you now have the option of selecting Cheat or Other.

Made small improvements to the UI for customizing Legends.

Added option to turn off lighting on compatible hardware [for example, Razer Chroma devices] in the Mouse/Keyboard settings.

  • Added informative messages that appear on PC for crashes due to:

    • Running out of memory.

    • CPU errors best explained by overclocking/overheating.

  • Added better collision to the turrets on Supply Ships.

  • Stability fixes to all platforms.

BUG FIXES

  • Fixed issue where the Battle Pass rewards page would not have a default item selected, resulting in a mostly blank page.

  • Fixed bug for PS4 and X1 where sometimes attempting to use a keyboard to chat could cause a fatal script error.

  • Fixed bug with Banner Cards not showing up during and at the end of a match.

JUMP PAD PHASE WALK INTERACTIONS

  • Octane’s Jump Pad no longer affects players when using Into the Void ability.
