Apex Legends developer Jason McCord has confirmed that Wraith is in for some changes once the Lost Treasures Collection Event update rolls out on June 23.

Ever since Apex Legends went live in February of 2019, Wraith has been one of the most-used and popular characters. The Interdimensional Skirmisher has been the source of inspiration for plenty of cosplays and incredible skin concepts, and, most importantly of all, can usually be found in the winner’s circle after a game.

However, with the Lost Treasures Collection Event update almost upon us, the battle royale is set to receive a bit of a shake-up. Developers have confirmed that Lifeline will be reworked and Octane will be tweaked, and now it’s been confirmed that Wraith will join them in being tweaked.

Wraith has always been one of Apex’s most popular legends.

The confirmation came after fans were quizzing Jason McCord, Design Director on Apex Legends, about which characters would receive tweaks. While he remained pretty quiet on a few, pointing towards the upcoming patch notes, he did answer a question on Wraith.

“Some tweaks to her kit, yes,” McCord replied to a question about a potential buff to the Interdimensional Skirmisher. Despite being pressed for a follow-up, the dev didn’t anything else outside of “look for patch notes before the event goes live.”

But, crucially, McCord doesn’t state whether they will be a buff, nerf, or maybe sideways change to her abilities. Currently, Wraith is already by far the most popular Legend, so a buff would be surprising.

Of course, the “kit” that McCord is referring to is just Wraith’s abilities. With a change in the offing, it could be anything from an tweak to the time she has to run with the void, an addition to her Voices from the Void sounds, or a change to the cooldown on her ultimate.

Overall, Wraith’s change might not as significant as Lifeline, who McCord himself confirmed would be able to revive two downed teammates at once when her rework goes live. However, Wraith mains will just have to wait and see what comes from the Lost Treasures update.

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.
