Apex Legends glitch lets you launch vehicles across the map

Deals deals deals! Just kidding – I interrupt your regularly scheduled Black Friday posts to bring you some delightful Apex Legends japes. Today in “what daft thing has Imogen done in a multiplayer shooter now”, I had a go at replicating a glitch that throws Apex’s new vehicles across the map. Actually, “launch” is probably a better word to use than “throw”, because pulling off the stunt jetts you off into the sky like Gnome Chompski strapped to a rocket. (more…)

Apex Legends reduces battle pass grind… again

Apex Legends ‘ seventh season added in lovely things like a new map and character. However, it also brought about some rather unwelcome changes to the game’s battle pass, making it superbly grindy to level up. Respawn Entertainment made it so the XP required to gain a level was substantially higher than previous seasons. After a lot of backlash, they recognised the issue and made attempts to improve it last week. It still wasn’t quite enough, though, and now they’ve made further changes to lessen the grind – with even more on the way next week. (more…)

You can preload Apex Legends on Steam right now

Remember when Respawn said Apex Legends would launch on Steam on November 4th? Well, that’s not entirely true for folks here in the UK.
