Apex Legends players come up with crazy idea for Skull Town return

Apex Legends will be bringing back Kings Canyon once again for a limited time, which means it’s a return to the first map everyone called home, but some players want Respawn to take it a bit further.

The original map will always hold a special place in the heart of players since it was the first memory a lot of them had with the game.

Kings Canyon has come back in the past and it’s currently gearing up for yet another return on January 24. Instead of being the map we all know and love, it’s going to be the nighttime variant, but it’s returning nonetheless.

EAWould you drop into Skull Town if it came back?

After just two days, the map will leave again until another LTM in the future brings it back. Fans are sick of this happening and want a more consistent way to play on the map, and have come up with their own idea.

In fact, Reddit user dinohunterpat has narrowed it down even more and wants just Skull Town to return, but with an added twist.

The spin they want the location to take is to bring the player count down to 24 and make it so they respawn. Essentially, it’d turn into a free-for-all deathmatch mode, but it could also easily be turned into a 11v11 or even split it into eight squads of three.

LTM Idea: Bring back Skulltown in a 24/7 playlist with 24 players and respawns from apexlegends

Of course, an easy suggestion to make would be telling these people to play the criminally underrated Titanfall 2, where a deathmatch mode like this is already present.

Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends may have their share of similarities, but the differences are enough to make that suggestion fall onto deaf ears for a lot of players.

EAPlayers are anxious for a Kings Canyon return.

Skull Town was a popular location for players who like to hot drop onto the map. It was always bustling with opponents at the beginning of the game, so there was always bound to be a lot of early action whenever you landed there.

While a mode like this would eliminate the thrill of dropping there and not knowing what to expect, just having Skull Town back in the game would be more than enough for many.

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.
