Respawn Entertainment have released a new gameplay trailer showcasing the brand-new map, World’s Edge, alongside a plethora of new content that will be coming to Apex Legends during Season 3.

Following the release of the cinematic trailer which unveiled World’s Edge in all of its glory, a gameplay trailer has since been posted, revealing a deeper insight into exactly what’s in-store as part of Season 3: Meltdown, set to go live on October 1. 

The trailer – which was posted prematurely, due to an accidental leak – highlights various areas of the new map, alongside providing some clues and key details that will manifest throughout Season 3.

EAWorld’s Edge provides a dynamic environment for players to do battle in.

From the offset, Crypto displays his unrelenting aggression that has been fueled by the abduction of his beloved sister, by taking down Bloodhound in merciless fashion.

Subsequently, the camera pans around World’s Edge as it presents the varied terrain within. Set in an overgrown metropolis, the bold contrast between a molten–infused industrial plant and the icy suburbs, will pose a challenging environment for Legends.

Alongside revealing a more in-depth look at World’s Edge, the trailer also provides an insight into the user interface behind Crypto’s drone ability, which supports a chargeable EMP blast that is designed to take down enemy shields.

Moreover, a cargo train is doing the rounds throughout the trailer, which seems like an easy method of transportation around the new map, immediately hinting at increased accessibility to fast–paced gunfights.

Respawn have also added a vertical element of transportation with the introduction of geysers that are designed to propel players into the air, allowing them to glide in the air to another location. 

Of course, this will close the gap between other characters and Pathfinder, whose grapple hook and zipline combo have always provided the charismatic MRVN with a movement advantage.

First look at the new Meltdown–themed skins

In-light of the embered districts and snow-capped regions within World’s Edge, two fan-favorite characters have received an apt skin overhaul: Lifeline and Pathfinder.

Players will likely have to unlock these skins through the battle pass that will become available with the new season. Meltdown is set to kick-off on October 1st, where players will finally have access to the much anticipated new map.

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.
