Respawn Entertainment have released a new update for Apex Legends on Tuesday, February 19 that they hope will address issues that have caused the game to crash on a number of platforms.
Since its release on Monday, February 4, Apex Legends has become one of the biggest games in the world, reaching 25 million total players in just one week.
With so many players trying out the battle royale title, it’s unsurprising that bugs and issues have begun to surface, affecting fans of the game on different platforms.
Apex Legends’ latest update hopes to solve some of these problems, especially those that have been causing the game to crash on PS4 and Xbox One.
The developers have addressed an issue involving the way the game uses the PlayStation 4’s GPU that was causing the game to crash, along with bug that saw the game stop when players pressed a button while the game was loading.
The February 19 update also fixes a bug that caused Epic versions of the Gibraltar skin to crash the game on Xbox One, while finally addressing a glitch that caused players to move incredibly slowly after they had been revived.
The February 19 Apex Legends patch is now live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. You can read the full patch notes below.
