Highlights

  • Apex Legends update 1.1 went live 10 a.m. PT (10:30 PM IST).
  • The update reset players accounts causing them to lose all progress.
  • The error caused due to the update has been fixed.

 

Apex legends update 1.1 went live and players that logged in to play the game were greeted with accounts where all their progress was lost. Thankfully, the curse is undone and player progress is back where it belongs. Apparently, when the 1.1 updates went live, player progress data was moved to the wrong servers. The fix was quite easy and all players data is back. 

Respawn, the developers behind the Battle Royale game have said on a Reddit post, “Everything you've accomplished and bought in Apex up until the 1.1 Patch that went live at 10:00 PST today should be restored. Any in-game purchases and progress acquired during the time between 1.1 going live and the fix will be reverted - levels earned, items unlocked, packs opened, and spent currency. If you continued to play and didn't patch then this will not affect you. Any currency purchased, spent or not, will be carried back over to their original account state. i.e. - if you bought $20 worth of coins, and spent $18, then you’ll get $20 after the fix”.

Now that you've breathed a sigh of relief, here is a look at the details of the fixes and new features the update brings

Quality of Life:

  • Additional behind-the-scenes improvements for squashing cheaters.
  • Added Mute button during the intro and Legend selection.
  • When using the Report Player button for PC, you now have the option of selecting Cheat or Other.
  • Added informative messages that appear on PC for crashes due to running out of memory or CPU errors best explained by overclocking/overheating.
  • Added better collision to the turrets on Supply Ships.
  • Stability fixes to all platforms.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed issue where the Battle Pass rewards page would not have a default item selected, resulting in a mostly blank page.
  • Fixed bug for PS4 and X1 where sometimes attempting to use a keyboard to chat could cause a fatal script error.
  • Fixed bug with Banner Cards not showing up during and at the end of a match.

Jump Pad Phase Walk Interactions:

  • Octane’s Jump Pad no longer affects players when using Into the Void ability.

Apex Legends is fairly young in the world of battle royale. The game launched out of the blue and managed to garner 50 million users in one month after launch. The developer has actively supported the game and recently banned 335k players from playing the game on PC for cheating. You can read more about that here
