Apex Legends players have been waiting so long for the Season 1 Battle Pass that their Spotify playlists are starting to reflect the waiting game. 

Fans of the free-to-play game have been clamoring for the first version of the Battle Pass since the game’s shock release on February 4, with rumors and leaks suggesting that it would land on March 12.

However, as time continues to roll on with no official word from the developer about an upcoming launch date for the new content, it’s starting to impact people in more ways than one. 

EAApex Legends fans are hoping the Battle Pass lands soon.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user Sunhat-sandwich shared their Spotify playlist – which they created to listen to while playing the game.

The growing rumor mill surrounding the Battle Pass, though, seems to have had a sad, but perhaps very relatable, influence on some of the song choices. 

Made a spotify playlist for when I’m playing 🙂 What do you think? from r/apexlegends

Just looking at the track titles, there’s ‘I’m Sick of Waiting’ by Citizen, ‘God Fucking Damn’ by Armbreaker21 and ‘Can’t Take This Any Longer’ from Tess Reyes – which are three very possible reactions from Apex fans to Respawn still not launching Season 1. 

Not to mention ‘I Think I’m Going to Die’ by Theresolution5. However, that might be a bit too strong of a response.

Respawn confirm capped FPS for Apex Legends on next-gen consoles

Apex fans looking forward to a possible FPS boost when the game heads to next-gen consoles have been left disappointed after devs from Respawn confirmed that upgrade wasn’t going to happen.

FPS means “frames per second” and represents how many times your screen refreshes over a second. Generally, the rule for most games is higher FPS = smoother movement and graphics in-game.

Both the Series X and PS5 will be able to support games up to 120 FPS, double the amount from the previous generation of consoles, but not all games will be able to take advantage.

Unfortunately, while Apex will be coming to both next-gen machines, it doesn’t seem like Respawn will be able to increase the frames players can achieve.

Replying to a user on Twitter who inquired about the 60 FPS lock, Respawn dev Jason McCord confirmed Apex would be staying where it was so that everyone could continue playing, no matter what system they’re on.

“Locking the game on consoles lets us give a more consistent framerate for the lower end machines,” McCord explained. “If we uncapped it, you’d see much bigger spikes and valleys, and the game would feel worse.”

That’s not to say that Apex won’t perform better with new hardware though, framerate drops have been an almost constant complaint amongst players since the game was released, but it’s thought that the PS5 and Xbox Series X should do a much better job of keeping things at consistent 60 FPS.

In fact if Apex is able to keep framerate drops from happening, we’d wager being able to keep things going at a steady 60 frames a second would be a significantly more noticeable upgrade for many players than making it able to go all the way up to 120.

All that being said Respawn’s battle royale is still doing quite well with a loyal community of fans, and it will look to keep things going as players eventually start to move to new consoles to play through Season 7.
