Respawn Entertainment writer Tom Casiello gave Apex Legends fans a bit of relief after the Season 6 trailer made some wonder what happened to the Loba and Revenant storyline.

There’s been a ton of development as it concerns the High Society Thief and the Synthetic Nightmare’s story which has been explored since Revenant first came on to the scene. But the dreadful, gloomy feel of the tense storyline took a seat on the sidelines in the Season 6 trailer as Legends romped in explosions and gunfire.

While the preview was a breath of fresh air for people who wanted to get back to the fun aspects of the battle royale, it didn’t really have anything in regards to the heavy lore that the studio has been building up so far.

Even though the latest retailer confirmed new Legend Rampart, people were wondering if that meant the interweaving stories already established were going to take a break.

Apex Legends Season 6 will introduce new character Rampart.

Addressing these concerns, Casiello’s responses to fans on Twitter reassured them that there definitely will be more Loba and Rev interplay, but it’ll be coming later.

“Oh, it’s not over yet. Not by a long shot,” he said in response to an appreciation post for the Loba story in the last season. “Just because they weren’t the centerpiece of the trailer, doesn’t mean they don’t have a role to play in Season 6.”

The Respawn writer even said that players will find out more about Wattson and her story too. But that will probably be a bit later since creating these meaningful stories, “with an ever growing cast, it isn’t easy.”

As for the early parts of the upcoming chapter, it’s going to be Apex Legends like the fans have known it to be for a long time.

“After the last two seasons with the Revenant/Loba saga, we wanted to get back to hijinx and shenanigans,” Casiello said of the style depicted in the Season 6 trailer. “Good old fashioned shoot ‘em up fun. A nice break. But we have big angst-filled plans, so enjoy this while it lasts…”

This is great news for all camps of the Apex Legends fanbase; not only is Respawn taking the game back to its fun roots, they’re also giving themselves more time to really flesh the next phases of the expansive lore revolving around Loba, Wattson, and more.

Apex Legends players are encountering consistent connection outages across the world that points to an “invalid token” for people trying to jump into a match on PlayStation 4 and Xbox.

In the days since the Aftermarket event patch, there’s been an increasing amount of reports from Apex fans who are getting stuck on the wrong side of a connection issue. After trying to load into servers, some people are getting faced with a message that reads: “connection rejected: invalid_token.”

This promptly shuts down their attempts to hop into the Arena, with some claiming to have gone days without a chance to play the game.

“My issue is that I haven’t seen anybody [talk] about this,” one user said. “Like nobody is actually aware that so many people can’t even get into a game.”

The Apex Legends community is finding a persistent connection error on PlayStation 4.

What is the ‘connection rejected: invalid_token’ error?

People from Canada, South Africa, the United States, and more have all logged a complaint without a fix in sight from Respawn, though there could be hope they’re aware of the issue.

Over at the Answers HQ support hub, EA Community Manager David has been noticing that “there’s a regional component to this issue,” but not much else was provided.

Of course, EA and Respawn head up Apex Legends queries often. Hopefully someone at the publisher will let the proper devs know about the spike in reports, if the devs aren’t already on the case.

Some have found a ‘workaround’ in South African regions, it could have something to do with restrictions on some people’s routers. The ‘fix’ doesn’t apply to everyone, but it could have some tips for those that need it.

This doesn’t apply to every PS4 players’ situation, but it could be helpful for people working on a fix.

“I’ve been having problems with Apex ever since the cross-platform update,” one person wrote. “… I’m not exaggerating here, like EVERY single time I try loading into a match it kicks me back to the main menu and say ‘invalid token’ and this is happening every time it finds a match.”

As this continues to prevent Apex Legends players from getting into matches, expect Respawn to work on the issue on their end soon and provide updates, which we’ll then share here.
