New Apex Legends Update Addresses Slow Moving Bug, PS4 Crash Issues, And More
Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends received a patch earlier today that addresses a few gameplay hindering issues, the majority of which cropped up after the game’s first post-launch patch went live. Announced over on the Apex Legends subreddit, patch #2 helps resolve some issues players were having on the PlayStation 4, while also addressing some Legend-specific problems on other platforms.
By far the biggest detrimental bug that players have been dealing with is the ‘slow moving’ bug, which only seemed to happen after players were revived. From personal experience it seemed as if the player was moving at 75% speed, something that isn’t particularly fun in a game that is at least partially about agility. Thankfully, according to Respawn the issue has been resolved. Check out the full patch notes below:
Apex Legends Patch Notes 02
Patch is live on ALL PLATFORMS. Here’s the notes:
Fixes for PS4 crash issues.
Addresses issues we saw with GPU hangs.
Fixed crash when pressing button early in load process.
Fixed issue where players would sometimes move slowly after revive.
Fixed issue with Mirage Ability causing crashes.
Fixed issue with Gibraltar Epic skins on Xbox One causing crashes
It’ll be interesting to see if any new data leaks come from the implementation of the above patch. Dataminers were able to glean quite a bit from the Valentine’s Day patch, which we recently detailed in our compilation piece right here. The above patch is available for immediate download. Apex Legends is now available free-to-play for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
