Respawn Entertainment have long been criticized by members of the Apex Legends online community for a lack of content being added to the game, but have the tables turned in Season 2? 

The event kicked off on September 3 and, as seen in the official patch notes, introduced a whole host of changes to the battle royale game – including brand new portal in the sky, an Armed and Dangerous limited time mode, Wraith Town location and even a decrease in cosmetic pricing. 

These type of changes have been called for by fans for quite some time, in order to freshen things up in-game and give people the opportunity to pick up skins more affordably. 

Let’s take a look at the final verdict on the Voidwalker event from the players’ perspective. 

EANew Voidwalker cosmetics have been added to Apex Legends, but the overall pricing is still causing concern.

Since the update first landed in-game, thousands of players have jumped into Kings Canyon, been trying out the different features and posting their thoughts online. 

In a thread featuring on the Apex Legends subreddit, it very much looks like fans have come to a consensus around it as well. 

A thread named: “Can we show some love towards this event? Respawn, you did an amazing job” and started by user mikeytlive has gained a lot of traction, with others chiming in with their own verdicts on the event.

One user responded: “Not gonna lie, that the portal drop zone is some of the most fun I’ve ever had in this game,” while another posted: “Especially great job on the new location! This adds a great landing location to the map and its finally a good spot on the east side.”

While some reduced price cosmetics have been added to the game for the start of this update, where fans can pick them up for $5, many still have gripes about the price of skins overall.

“$20 for a skin is still completely absurd and needs to change but otherwise good stuff,” one user wrote, and many others agreed in the thread. 

On the whole, though, there has definitely been a largely positive response this time around.

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.
