Apex Legends players can now enjoy Season 4: Assimilation on Android mobile devices, thanks to the recent public release of the Nvidia GeForce Now cloud gaming service.

There have been lots of speculation and rumors surrounding the possible release for a mobile version of Apex Legends ever since the game first dropped back in February 2019.

While a mobile release for the battle royale has essentially been confirmed by publishers EA in several of their earnings calls, no timetable has been provided for when it will be made available to the public.

However, with the recent launch of Nvidia’s new GeForce Now game streaming service, Apex Legends is fully compatible with Android phones.

Nvidia currently offers GeForce Now in two versions – free and premium. The free version allows for up to one hour of playtime per session, while the paid ‘Founders’ version, which costs $4.99 a month, gives up for four hours of access.

Keep in mind that this service is currently only available on Android, so those on iOS will either have to wait for GeForce Now to launch on Apple devices or the full mobile game to be released, whichever comes first.

How to play Apex Legends mobile on Android

  • Download the Nvidia GeForce Now app on your Android smartphone.
  • Sign in to your Nvidia GeForce Now account (if you do not have an account you will need to make one)
  • Search for and add Apex Legends to your game library
  • Launch Apex Legends and sign in to your EA Origin account when prompted

Because this is not the official Apex Legends mobile game but rather just a way to launch the BR on Android smartphones, you will need a Bluetooth controller in order to play.

That shouldn’t be an issue if you already have an Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Nintendo Switch Pro controller lying around, as those are all Bluetooth compatible. All you need to do is connect a gamepad and you’ll be good to go.

Another important thing to note is that this loads you into PC servers against players who are on computer, putting you at a distinct disadvantage due to the massive technological advantages that a PC offers over mobile devices.

That said, it’s definitely better than not playing the game on mobile at all, so while you may find yourself struggling against the competition at first, the satisfaction of enjoying Apex Legends on-the-go should more than make up for it.

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.
