Players are reporting that a new Apex Legends update has been released today by Respawn Entertainment on PS4. And while we don’t have any patch notes to go with the new launch, gamers are reporting long copying times. The update itself seems quite small, but it appears that the time to copy and install the latest patch runs a lot longer than expected.
One user writes online: “A very LONG copy on this one, hopefully, it fixes the Blue screen Error CE-34878-0.
Another writes: “Mine took about 25 minutes to copy. I wasn’t even planning to turn on my PS4 but I saw posts on the update and got online just to have the game ready for later.”
As mentioned above, it appears that this latest Apex Legends update is very limited in scope and looks to be a hotfix.
The game has encountered a string of issues since the release of Apex Legends Season 4 – Assimilation.
Problems have been listed on all platforms and have included reports of stuttering and lag issues.
Strangely, it doesn’t appear that everyone is suffering from these issues, making it harder to gauge its overall impact.
Respawn was also forced to postpone the launch of the Valentine’s Day Rendezvous event earlier this week.
This is now live and will be available in-game on all platforms until February 19, 2020. During that time, gamers will notice the return of the Duos limited-time mode, which will disappear along with the rest of the timed event.
And here is what we know is included in the Valentine’s Day Rendezvous:
- Log-in to collect your Valentines 2020 Badge
- Duos returns for a limited time
- “Double Up” XP Boost
- Squad up with a buddy and earn double XP (up to 20k per day)
- New and Returning Valentine’s items
- 2 new Pathfinder and Nessie gun charms
- Return of last year’s “Through the Heart” DMR Longbow and “Love of the Game” Banner frame at discount.
It’s unclear if new patch notes for today’s Apex Legends update will be shared by the Respawn team in the coming hours.
Apex Legends is a free-to-play Battle Royale shooter developed by Respawn Entertainment and released in 2019. Apex is available to download and play on PS4, Xbox One and PC, with no word yet on a Nintendo Switch port.
