Apex Legends update 1.03 is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC and is, unfortunately, causing problems on one platform.
Having downloaded and installed the new patch, Apex players on Xbox are reporting problems with the game crashing.
Xbox appears to be the platform having the hardest time when it comes to technical issues.
While the Xbox One X Frame Rate and gameplay performance have been solid, it’s been reported that the original Xbox One is at the bottom of the pile.
And Respawn Entertainment has now confirmed that new issues may have been introduced to the Xbox One platform.
It appears that some of the new skins added in the new Apex Legends update may be the cause of tonight’s issues.
“Hey, all. We discovered an unfortunate issue with the Through the Heart Valentines DMR skin, Gibraltar’s Daemon Hunter and Neural Net skins that are causing crashes on Xbox One,” Respawn confirms in a new post.
“We’ve disabled the skins while we investigate.”
And this isn’t the only issues, with Respawn also revealing that problems unlocking New Legends have also started popping up.
“We’re aware of the reports of players unable to use Caustic or Mirage after unlocking on Xbox One and investigating. Will update when we have more info.”
Here are the patch notes shared by Respawn concerning the new skins added to the game earlier today:
- VALENTINES DAYS – Store items will be available starting at 6pm PST on 2/13.
- Added “Live Die Live” Banner Badge: Revive a member of your squad between 2/13 and 2/19 to earn this limited time badge.
- Added Valentines Day cosmetic items to the store. They will be live and available in the store starting 2/13 until 2/19 and then they’re gone!
- “Through the Heart” Longbow Epic DMR skin
- “Love of the Game” Pathfinder banner frame
It’s unclear how long these issues may persist but it looks like Respawn will share more information when they have it.
Vince Zampella, the CEO of Respawn Entertainment, recently provided an update on how popular the new free-to-play Battle Royale game is proving with fans.
“What a week! Since we launched Apex Legends last week on Monday we’ve seen the creation of an Apex Legends community that is excited, thriving, and full of great feedback and ideas,” Zampella writes.
“Our goal is to build this game with you, our community, so keep giving us your feedback because we really are listening.
“We’re also thrilled to announce that since last Monday, more than 25 million players have jumped into the game, and over the weekend we had well over 2 million concurrent players at our peak. Like I said earlier, what a week!
“From everyone here at Respawn, thank you. The community’s excitement for Apex Legends is electric, and we feel it here at the studio. We couldn’t have gotten where we are without you and look forward to having you on this journey with us.”
