New clues for Apex Legends Season 3 Meltdown are starting to convince some players that Kings Canyon is going to get a huge change to its layout by incorporating lava and ice.

The Apex Legends community is hyped for what Season 3 of the battle royale will bring, which will definitely include new Apex Games contestant Crypto alongside any other calamity his presence will surely bring to the landscape.

But a few hints from the Italian Apex Legends Season 3 site could hold a telling sign of what players will be in for when the next chapter of the game gets underway.

In a Reddit post, user ‘FrostBurn303’ found an interesting use of words on the Apex Legends page when translating the words into English.

“‘Sbaraglia i nemici e esplora scenari di lava e ghiaccio,’ FrostBurn303 noted as they investigated what they found. “Which translates into ‘Eliminate enemies and explore lava and ice scenarios’”

Meanwhile, the native English portion of the site for that portion says “Show off your skills in the new series of Ranked mode. Drop in hot and put your enemies on ice!”

Even though there are some correlations between the two taglines, the user pointed out the apparent distinction in the Italian version of the site: “I translated the page to English so I could post this here, but apparently in the English version it’s a bit different.”

The English version seems to intentionally include “hot” and “ice” to encourage players to drop into the new Ranked Series 2, but the Italian translation gives the tagline a completely different meaning.

Respawn EntertainmentClues indicate that Crypto isn’t done messing with the Apex Games.

Before Respawn settled on the official name of Meltdown, leaked game files linked Season 3 to a different moniker of ‘Fire and Ice.’

We’ve already seen the chaos Crypto created before he even entered the game, since he was the main catalyst for Season 2’s wild changes throughout the map.

Season 3 could see the covert hacker create even more disastrous situations that includes lava and ice in Kings Canyon, as he enters the game to fight while staying “out of the spotlight.”

It won’t be long before Crypto fully enters the game and players can experience the full effects of Season 3’s new changes in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends dev responds to Winter Express ‘crush’ bug

An Apex Legends developer has responded to a frustrating bug that is crushing players in corners in the Winter Express LTM. 

With the holiday season fast approaching, game developers across the globe are racing to get their updates in so that players can celebrate while also playing their favorite games. In the case of Respawn, the Apex Legends dev have brought back the Holo-Day Bash event as well as the Winter Express LTM. 

The popular limited-time mode is pretty simple, with players battling in tight spaces, and with random loadouts, to take control of the train that used to chug around World’s Edge. 

While it is incredibly fun, there are a few issues cropping up – with the biggest one, this time around, seeing players being crushed when they go near certain corners or interact with a teammate. 

EAThe Winter Express LTM provides a new element to squad-on-squad combat.

Anyone who likes to get their teammates a friendly punch will have noticed the issue, but Apex Legends player blinnddd was confused at first – asking if it was a bug or an intended consequence of getting their teammate a tap. 

Plenty of players quickly responded to say it was an issue before Daniel Klein – a Senior Game Designer at Respawn – chimed in to confirm it’s a problem, but it’s not exactly a simple one to get ironed out. 

“F**king moving geo 🙁 Yeah, it’s a bug, but not an easy one to fix, he commented shortly after the post went up on the Apex Legends subreddit. “Hope that was in the grace period!”

Additionally, the problem has been flagged on Respawn’s public Trello board of Apex Legends issues, but it’s purely in the investigating phase for now. 

The Holo-Day bash event, and the Winter Express LTM, are set to run until January 4, so there is plenty of time to get it straightened out, but as Klein notes, its not an easy one. So, we’ll just have to wait and see.
