Major Apex Legends glitch is stopping players from getting into game

Trying to drop onto Kings Canyon After Dark but can’t seem to ready up? You’re not alone. A major Apex Legends glitch is stopping players from getting into game, and the solution to fix it is unclear.

September Soiree was meant to be a big affair for Apex Legends. With tons of LTMs, including King’s Canyon: After Dark and Dummies Big Day, players were hyped to grind out the different game modes.

There were also some event-exclusive skins on offer from the Grand Soiree back in August available to help celebrate Season 6.

However, if the new event wasn’t already proving to be buggy enough, a new glitch is flat out stopping players from getting into Apex Legends.

After launching the King’s Canyon: After Dark LTM, players noted they weren’t able to join the queue. While they could select the game mode they wanted to play, when prompted to start the queue, they’d just be taken back into the mode select screen.

Obviously, not being able to queue up means no Apex Legends. The game won’t just automatically launch you into queue after a period of time.

The community has been brainstorming a number of solutions. You can try one of the following things to solve this glitch and get back into game as fast as possible:

  • Restart your game client, and try and queue up again
  • Change your servers, and try and queue up again
  • Join a friend who doesn’t have the glitch and queue up
  • Uninstall and reinstall the game (yes, this is drastic, but if you’re desperate…)

It’s not clear if it’s a server issue or a client issue, but one thing is for sure ⁠— Respawn is likely cracking on a fix as fast as possible. Expect a hotfix to drop in the coming hours to solve this glitch.

Until then, you just have to have your fingers and toes crossed. If you’re one of the unlucky ones with the glitch, you won’t be able to get into game, meaning you’ll have to watch the action on the sidelines for the time being.

Apex Legends Season 7 start date moved forward one week

After an initial leak and then a change with the Season 6 Battle Pass, it appears that the start date for Apex Legends’ Season 7 start date has been moved up by a week.

Although not officially announced yet by Respawn Entertainment, all indications seem to be pointing to Season 7 kicking off a week earlier than had been originally scheduled.

According to the in-game Battle Pass menu, S7 was initially set to start on November 10, which made sense given the length of a standard Apex Legends season. Now, prominent data-miner ‘Shrugtal’ leaked updated game code that showed the date being changed to November 4.

Following Shrugtal’s tweet, Apex’s Battle Pass menu was adjusted to show that, as of October 21, there were only 14 days left remaining in S6, rather than the 21 that had been displayed earlier the same day.

This all but confirms the date change, which Respawn have not yet explained, although it could be because S6 had been delayed by a week, so this could be the devs wanting to keep subsequent seasons right on schedule rather than all of them also starting a week later.

While this change fixes that issue and also means Apex fans will be able to access Season 7’s content a week earlier, at the same time, they’ll have a week less than originally anticipated to experience everything that Season 6 has to offer.

It makes more sense now that the annual Fight or Fright Halloween-themed event, which starts October 22, is wrapping up on November 3, just in time for the new season to launch.

This change also helps to explain why Respawn have been so teaser-happy recently, putting out voice recordings almost on a daily basis hinting at what’s coming to their prized battle royale in its seventh chapter.

While we don’t know what these recordings mean just yet, since they all seem to be pieces of a larger puzzle, there’s no doubt that the Apex community is getting excited again over that familiarly awesome feeling of new content on the way.

S7 is set to introduce a brand new legend named Horizon and is also expected to add a new machine gun called Predator, although the latter has yet to be confirmed. Of course, players will also have a new battle pass full of content to jump into.
