Respawn’s free-to-play bat­tle royale has tak­en the gam­ing com­mu­ni­ty by storm, pass­ing by huge mile­stones in the mat­ter of days.

Even though Apex Leg­ends has only been out for a lit­tle over two weeks, it already has a patch to address sev­er­al prob­lems. This patch also adds Valentine’s Day store items and a new Ban­ner Badge.

At the end of the patch notes, the team over at Respawn let play­ers know they’ve heard their frus­tra­tions over the dis­con­nects and crash­es. They’re work­ing on sta­bil­i­ty and per­for­mance improve­ments, as well as pro­vid­ing more vis­i­bil­i­ty for every­one.
