Update 1.56 fixes crashing ahead of S8
Season 8 of Apex Legends is fast approaching, and the team at Respawn Entertainment have been working tirelessly to ensure it is a success.
Their latest update - Update 1.56 - has been released, with the aim of fixing in-game issues which were causing players game to crash.
“We've pushed out a patch that improves stability and (hopefully) fixes the freezing issues.
“This issue, in particular, has been tricky for us to pin down consistently, but we are hopeful that we have addressed most of the cases where it happens.”
Let's hope it straightens itself out before Season 8 drops!
Olympus was the new map for season 7, and let's hope for a new arena for Season 8!
A utopia floating in clouds above Psamathe, it was once a place where the brightest minds in the Outlands could gather and exchange ideas.
However, an accident in an experimental research facility led to the creation of the Phase Rift (a massive bubble of Phase energy), and the city was abandoned.
Now players can use Olympus’ luxurious amenities to their advantage.
Rotating agricultural towers, beautiful gardens and classy restaurants serve as new stages for intense skirmishes.
New vehicles called Tridents give your squad a way to boost into battle and take your enemies by surprise.
The Phase Runner – a tunnel of Phase energy running through the center of Olympus – lets you cross the map in seconds. And the Rift stands tall over everything, mysterious and beckoning.
Along with the Olympus map, the Trident was a great new vehicle addition for Season 7.
Cruise the highways to avoid chokepoints or use the boost to soar over jumps, this thing is made to speed up those early game rotations.
Drive in third person, or ride as a passenger in first person with full shooting capabilities.
The Trident is durable, so it will never explode, but damage applied from enemy fire will be dispersed amongst the players in the car.
Don’t worry, you can still do full damage to players by hitting them directly so we expect to see some amazing Kraber shots.
Disembark to park it anywhere and use it as makeshift cover in the late game.
The Trident interacts with Legend abilities in many different ways, experiment and have fun!
