The third season of Apex Legends is right around the corner, starting on October 1, and there’s lots of excitement about what might be coming, with some theories even suggesting a new map is in the works. 

Admittedly, this theory is somewhat optimistic, drawing on various small hints and teasers and bringing them together to form the bigger picture.

It suggests that a new location, away from Kings Canyon, called Psamathe, could either join or even replace the current map in Apex Legends.

What is Psamathe?

Psamathe is a planet in the Titanfall universe, and actually happens to be the birthplace of both Lifeline and Octane.

The planet was first mentioned in related to Apex Legends after the attack of the flyers and leviathans at the start of Season 2.

In a blog post on the official website, it’s stated that “Images of the disaster (in Kings Canyon) have been splashed across holoscreens from Solace to Psamathe.”

Could Psamathe be the new map?

We already know that Season 3 is called ‘Meltdown’, but it was previously leaked as being named ‘Fire and Ice’. 

In fact, in the Season 3 announcement, one line teases some kind of Fire and Ice situation, stating: “Drop in and put your enemies on Ice”, while the Italian version translates to “Eliminate enemies and explore lava and ice scenarios”

Another clue is this concept art for Lifeline – lava can be seen in the background of the icey land.

Is this Lifeline art our first glimpse of Psamathe?

Crypto teases new planet

Bringing all these clues together is the lore for new Legend Crypto, who is joining the lineup of characters at the start of Season 3.

In a cryptic message, he wrote: “I took down the Repulsor tower. I had no idea it would be so insane. I’m hoping the damage was enough to close Kings Canyon, so I can hitch a ride on the dropship off Solace, and find the evidence I need somewhere in New Dawn.

“I just hope I see you one last time, and I don’t get blown up before I go off-planet.”

Perhaps the biggest clue is the large ‘space elevator’ which was teased on September 25

This space elevator could perhaps be how the Legends are transported off Solace, and onto Psamathe.

All of this should be taken with a helping of salt of course, as it is far from confirmed, but there are a lot of clues here that could be pointing to the Apex games moving to a new location for Season 3.

With less than a week to go until the new season starts, we’ll all know soon enough.

Despite being around for a while now, the infamous code 100 error continues to cause problems in Apex Legends and we’ve got all the info you need to address it.

What is the code 100 error in Apex Legends?

The Code 100 Error has been annoying Apex Legends players since early 2020; the error relates to players being unable to ‘complete their EA Account sign in,’ which is particularly annoying for players as EA have not yet noted the issues, much less acknowledged that they have their own fix coming.

Players have come up with a temporary fix of their own, with the remedy being pretty much the same regardless of whether you play the popular title on PC, Xbox, or PlayStation. You can find the fix for each respective platform below.

Respawn Entertainment / EA GamesThe Code 100 error is stopping Apex Legends players from helping teammates as Lifeline.

The temporary fix, which has been a success for most players, revolves around being able to change your DNS [Domain Name System] server to a public DNS service, which has its own numbered code.

To make the fix work on Xbox, go into your network settings and tweak a few things:

  1. Go to Settings – Network, Advanced Settings, DNS Settings
  2. Change DNS settings to the following:
  3. Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8
  4. Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4
  5. Save settings and return to Apex Legends

You may have to restart the game for the updated settings to make a change.

Windows CentralThe network settings for Xbox One are slightly tucked away – but you’ll be back playing Apex in no time.

Again, fixing the error on either PlayStation console is pretty similar to Xbox but there are a couple more steps to follow:

  1. Go to Settings » Network » Set Up Internet Connection.
  2. Select which connection you use – be it WiFi or LAN Cable
  3. Select ‘custom’ and enter the following settings:
    • IP Address Settings: Automatic
    • DHCP Host Name: Do Not Specify
    • DNS Settings: Manual
    • Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8
    • Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4
    • MTU Settings: Automatic
    • Proxy Server: Do Not Use

Save these settings and then return to your home screen.  Like on Xbox, you may have to close the Apex Legends application and start it up again for the changes to take effect.

How to fix Apex Legends code 100 Error on PC

The good news is that there is a fix for code 100 on PC, the bad news is that it takes a bit longer to do that on console. That said, if you follow these steps, you should be able to bypass the error.

  1. On PC, hit the Win + R keys together, opening the command box
  2. There, type in ncpa.cpl and wait for ‘Network Connections’ to appear
  3. On Network Connections, head to the internet connection you operate on and right-click it
  4. Once that right-click menu open, select properties
  5. After the properties menu opens, find Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and select properties – which is towards the bottom right-hand side of the box
  6. There, select ‘Use the following DNS server addresses’ and type in:
  7.  Preferred DNS server: 8.8.8.8
  8. Alternate DNS server: 8.8.4.4
  9. Once done, select OK in the bottom right-hand corner. Once the box disappears, restart your PC and allow the changes to take place.

So, there you have it, that’s how you fix the Code 100 Error on old-gen and next-gen consoles, as well as PC.
