Cryptic Apex Legends teaser hints at “more than one” Kings Canyon

A brand-new Apex Legends teaser reveals details about Loba’s next quest, but also suggests a bizarre possibility that there are multiple Kings Canyons. 

Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune’s Favor introduced a new character, Loba, and a variety of quests that follow similar rudimentary patterns calling on the sophisticated thief’s skills to steal highly coveted artifacts. 

The game’s latest teaser is a transcript of a dialogue between Loba, Yoko Zepnewski, and Cheryl Amacce—the latter two being unknown characters who appear to work for Hammond Robotics. 

 

Amacce proclaims she’ll be able to help Loba in her efforts to enact revenge on Revenant, but that the esteemed burglar will need to steal another artifact, intriguingly from a King’s Canyon island that has not yet blown up.

There is an obvious takeaway here: the next big quest for players to complete in Apex Legends will be hunting down some treasure that is “buried underneath Kings Canyon.” But the more intriguing takeaway comes later, as Loba reminds Amacce that there is no longer a subterranean Kings Canyon as the island was shredded by explosives.

Respawn EntertainmentAn interesting conversation featuring Loba that hints at the future of Apex Legends.

 

Snarkily telling Amacce that she’s acting like there is more than one version of the same location, the Hammond Robotics employee responds: “You say that as if there isn’t.

With much of Kings Canyon destroyed by the events leading into Season 5, suggesting that Loba go underground to steal things once again seems ridiculous. The fan-favorite areas Skulltown and Thunderdome are gone, but so is most of the island’s subterranea. So how can Loba fulfill Amacce’s request?

Two prevailing theories consequentially emerge: 1) she’s referring to Kings Canyon After Dark, which exists in an alternate dimension, or 2) she’s referring to an entirely different island, either located on the same planet, Solace, or on another.

A host of map changes were made in Season 5 as Apex Legends returned to Kings Canyon, including new secret bunkers.

Season 5’s Kings Canyon found much of its environment decimated and blown into the surrounding ocean.

 

The first theory is interesting but somewhat unexciting. Technically, the Kings Canyon After Dark map, which was introduced during the Shadowfall LTM during Season 3’s Fight or Fright event, is the same island but in an alternate dimension befitting spooky zombie-esque Shadows.

The second is entirely nebulous and could mean vastly different things, but not entirely far-fetched given Hammond Robotics’ history.

Kings Canyon After Dark was very spooky, but could it also be the site of Loba’s next stealthy shenanigans?

Whatever the case, June 23 can not come soon enough as Apex Legends fans were already excited for the upcoming Lost Treasures Collection Event, which will feature loads of new content.

This quest teaser only adds to the excitement. If players were getting bored of the standard quests, then the possibility of pushing Loba and Revenant’s story arc further while deploying into a novel Kings Canyon will be alluring—especially if it means Skulltown might be making a return.

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.
