Apex Legends December update: release date, new cosmetics, level cap

Major changes are coming to Apex Legends beginning in December that will give players more rewards to earn as the progression system is being tweaked.

Many players have already capped out level 100 in Apex Legends and while the game is still fun, it’s always nice to have something to work towards.

Beginning on December 3, the level cap will be raised from 100 all the way to 500, giving players a whole lot more leveling to do. If you haven’t reached level 100 yet, the XP needed to get there has decreased by 5% to help players reach it quickly so they can move on to the new content.

EAProgression changes are on the way.

Previously, there were 45 Apex Packs up for grabs by reaching the max level, but that will be bumped up to 199 for reaching level 500.

Anyone who reached level 100 before this update goes live will be retroactively rewarded 14 Apex Packs to coincide with the change. Here’s a breakdown of how that will work:

  • Level 2 – 20: One pack every level (19 Apex Packs total)
  • Level 22 – 300: One pack every two levels (140 Apex Packs total)
  • Level 305 – 500: One pack every five levels (40 Apex Packs total)
  • You will continue to earn 600 Legend Tokens per level and per 18,000 XP at level 500

For the Gun Charm fans out there you’re in luck as 36 new ones that will be put into Apex Packs as well as the store for players to buy directly. Every 100 levels will reward players with a new weapon charm to show off.

EANew Weapon Charms are coming for Apex Legends in December.

To sum up, if you like unlocking things as you play the game, then this December 3 update will appeal to you greatly.

There’s a lot to look forward to here so whether you’re a frequent player or someone who’s looking to jump back into the action, this would be a good time. It’s going to be a lot of grinding so if that’s something that interests you then buckle up.

What is code:truck error in Apex Legends & how to fix it? Latest from EA

After Apex Legends received its Holo-Day Bash update, many fans are reporting a brand new code:truck error that’s preventing them from entering the game. Here’s what you need to know about the odd server issue that everyone seems to be getting.

Earlier today, the Holo-Day Bash update went live for Apex Legends, which added in a slew of new content, including some skins and a brand new LTM.

Unbeknownst to players, it seems to have added something else to the game that’s causing a lot of people headaches as they try to log-in.

The Apex community is now reporting a new error code:truck when they attempt to log-in, which is causing some major issues and seems to be caused by the Holo-Day Bash update, although this part is a bit unclear. Here’s what you need to know about the error and if there’s anything that can be done to solve it.

What is the code:truck error in Apex Legends

According to the error messages seen by players, either the game itself or the player is “out of sync with the server.” What that actually means is anyone’s guess.

What we do know about code:truck is that it’s preventing people from logging into the game. It’s affecting a large number of people on all platforms, although the exact extent of this is unclear as of the time of this writing.

Hopefully more information will be available soon.

What can be done to fix the code:truck error?

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a surefire fix for the error. As of 7:10 EST on December 1, 2020, Electronic Arts and Respawn haven’t released a fix for the bug. That being said, they did comment on the error, saying they are looking into the problem.

Beyond that, however, we have no update as to what’s causing this error for some players, how extensive is the problem, and, most importantly, what the fix is for it.

Over on Reddit, some players are reporting on a few different fixes but none of the them are confirmed. One player reported that they were able to workaround the issue by changing the date and time on their PS4 and few others confirmed its success.

Hopefully a fix becomes available in the near future to avoid it spreading to other people, which would result in the amount of players logging into Apex Legends to plummet.
