Apex Legends has received a second update, the Preseason patch 1.04. The new update doesn’t include any balance or gameplay changes, instead focussing on fixing
up some further bugs with the game, most notably on the PS4 end of things.
Apex Legends 1.04 patch notes - February 19
Crashes based on the GPU or thanks to a button press on the loading screen should now be knocked on the head. On the Xbox side of things, a bug with Gibraltar’s Epic skins that used to cause crashes should also be gone, letting the big guy dress as fabulous as he likes.
One crucial fix is for the slow move bug that’s irritated a great number of people. Occasionally, reviving a teammate would leave them unable to run, left to wander around at a slow walk even if downed again. Considering how fast-paced Apex Legends is, this was an infuriating bug that often left you dying slowly outside of the ring, unable to run to safety. Until now the only solution was to have the player die, then collect their banner and call them back in at a respawn point. Thankfully, so much hassle won’t be required any more.
Here are the brief but full patch notes:
- Fixes for PS4 crash issues.
- Addresses issues we saw with GPU hangs.
- Fixed crash when pressing button early in load process.
- Fixed issue where players would sometimes move slowly after revive.
- Fixed issue with Mirage Ability causing crashes.
- Fixed issue with Gibraltar Epic skins on Xbox One causing crashes
