Developers from Respawn Entertainment have revealed that a fix is on its way for the level 500 bug that has been affecting Apex Legends players.

Since Respawn announced that they had increased the level cap in Apex Legends, many of the game’s hardcore players have been experiencing an unusual bug after leveling up.

This bizarre glitch made Apex Legends literally unplayable for many players who managed to reach the prestigious level 500, preventing them from being able to connect to the game’s servers.

Respawn’s level cap increase did not quite go according to plan.

In many titles, those who reach the maximum level are often rewarded for their time spent on a game with impressive badges, however, Apex Legends players have unfortunately been unable to show off their achievement at all.

After the bug was first discovered in the popular battle royale many have been calling on developers to implement a fix and on January 17 they revealed that one was soon to be on the way.

Respawn’s community coordinator ‘Garza’ apologized to fans on their Trello board, revealing that they were expected to release a server patch for the bug on January 16, however, certain issues arose that caused it to be delayed.

“This did not go out last night as intended as issues and concerns arose. will continue to update this thread when I get more info. Sorry,” Garza expressed, revealing that the fix would take a little longer than expected.

Although the server patch was delayed by the developers, Respawn explained that they are working on dealing with it as well as many other issues and it will likely be fixed over the coming days.

According to the Apex Legends Dev Tracker, the exact time of release for the patch is still yet to be determined, however, more information should be soon to follow.

This should come as good news to those who have been affected by the patch, as it won’t be long until they can finally return to playing their favorite game without many issues.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
