Apex Legends dev teases special LTM with base characters and classic Kings Canyon map

An Apex Legends developer proposed an idea for an LTM that would see the return of OG Kings Canyon and base characters.

An Apex Legends dev is teasing the community with questions regarding a new LTM that would bring the OG Kings Canyon map, base characters and weapons, as well as day one stats.

With the Control LTM being removed from the game now that the Warriors Collection Event has ended in Apex Legends Season 12, it seems the devs already have new content on their minds.

With all the content that’s set to release in Season 13, including a new Legend and Storm Point map update, players could also be getting a new LTM that will have OG players reminiscing.

While we have seen some aspects of the OG Apex Legends experience return in the past, like the Apex Legends Genesis Collection Event back in Season 9, which brought the original Kings Canyon and World’s Edge maps back to the game, we are yet to see it return as an LTM.

While it was great to see the original maps, it would be even better to have the base characters and weapons all with their original stats from Season 0 of Apex Legends.

This idea is exactly what Apex Legends dev Conor Ford has proposed to the community over on Twitter, creating a poll that asks: “would anyone ever like to see an OG Apex LTM from @PlayApex ? Base Characters and day one weapons only on OG King’s Canyon? Day one weapon stats as well.”

This would see the return of the Wingman and R-99 combo, prior to the significant nerfs over the twelve seasons of Apex. This would also see Wraith at her best, despite still being one of the most popular Legends in the game.

At the time of writing this article, the poll is strongly in favor of this hypothetical LTM coming to the game, as 91.3% of the 27,455 votes have gone for “yes please.”

This has also opened up ideas from the community for other LTMs in Apex Legends, as one of the comments states that they would like to see “more fun ltms” like a “gun game LTM” from the Call of Duty franchise or even “Wingman only.”

We’ll have to wait and see what Respawn Entertainment does when it comes to new LTMs, but since Control was such a hit with the player base, it’s likely we’ll see more of the same in the future.

Apex Legends devs respond to criticism by adding cheaper Apex Coins option

Respawn Entertainment have responded to player feedback by introducing a cheaper Apex Coins option in the game.

Published

In response to complaints from Apex Legends players about the high cost of Apex Coins, Respawn Entertainment have added a cheaper currency pack option to the game.

Apex Coins are the premium currency in Apex Legends that can you purchase with real money and then spend in order to get your hands on new cosmetic items for your Legends and weapons.

You may have to purchase bigger currency packs in order to get yourself certain items, and the Apex Legends community has been frustrated with the high cost of these. Now, the devs have responded to this issue.

Apex Legends players that don’t have enough currency to unlock a specific item end up having to spend a lot on bigger currency packs.The cheapest bundle that you could get contained 1,000 Apex Coins and would set you back $9.99.

This can be particularly frustrating if you only need to use a small portion of the Apex Coins in the pack. Now, Respawn and EA have addressed this problem by adding the option to purchase currency packs with a 500 coin bundle for $4.99.

Now, you’ll be able to get yourself a decent number of Apex Coins without having to spend an extremely large amount of cash. Players that only need 400 Apex Coins to buy something, and no longer need to spend a whole $10 to do so.

The addition of this option will come as a huge relief to players that were tired of paying for currency that they didn’t need for an insanely high cost.

At the time of writing, the Apex Legends developers haven’t officially announced this change, but the arrival of this cheaper currency pack shows that they were listening to community feedback.

When did Apex Legends come out?

Apex Legends has become one of the most popular battle royale games in the world, but when did it first release?

Published

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royales in the world, but when did it come out? Here’s everything you need to know about the game’s original release date.

From PUBG to Fortnite, Apex Legends to Warzone, the battle royale genre has truly dominated the gaming scene for the last five years. In fact, the mode has become so important to shooters that games that launch without one are viewed as missing a vital component.

Each battle royale brings its own spin to the genre, capturing the imagination of players looking for new experiences. For Fortnite, building set it apart from its opponents, while Warzone’s use of class loadouts made it different from anything else on the market.

For Apex Legends, the use of characters with special and unique abilities meant that nothing else on the market could match its high-octane action, and unsurprisingly, thousands still jump on and play years after its launch. But when did Apex Legends actually release?

When did Apex Legends release?

Apex Legends released on February 4, 2019, and was available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

Since then, the developers have released next-gen versions of the game for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, offering upgraded graphics and performance thanks to the power of the new consoles.

Developers Respawn Entertainment also targeted the portable gaming market too, releasing Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch on March 9, 2021.

When did Apex Legends Mobile come out?

Apex Legends Mobile was released on May 17, 2022, and is available on both iOS and Android devices.

After finding huge success on consoles and PC, Respawn decided it was time to let Apex players fight victories wherever they are. The game was first released in a limited number of regions but is available worldwide now.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes: Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg, bug fixes, more

Apex Legends has a brand-new 1.99 patch which brings bug fixes and new interactive Easter Egg for Lifeline’s Clinic.

Published

on

Respawn Entertainment have dropped a new patch for Apex Legends Season 13, which includes a variety of changes and even interactive objects for Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In addition to the ranked split which occurred on June 28, Apex Legends has received a brand-new patch for Season 13, bringing a variety of bug fixes and updates to the game.

The Apex Legends 1.99 patch is small, but for those who are interested, here are the patch notes for the update.

Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg

This patch is very small, and Respawn Entertainment haven’t actually revealed patch notes for what the update actually brought to the game. However, thanks to dataminer Kralindo, we have information on what the update has done.

One of the most interesting changes in the patch is the addition of interactive objects in Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In Lifeline’s Clinic, players can now play the drums, guitar, and more. Interacting with these objects will play audio, which is a little Easter Egg for Lifeline’s previous occupation as a punk band drummer, hence her drum sticks Heirloom.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes

Although there are no official patch notes for the Apex Legends 1.99 patch, luckily Kralindo has gone through the game’s code and figured out some of the changes.

There may be more changes server-side, but here are all the changes Kralindo managed to see:

  • Some small Newcastle tactical changes, most likely bug fixes
  • Lifeline town takeover interactive objects activated
  • 500 Apex Coins enabled in the store (via playlist)
  • Really small change for the Replicator

That’s all for the Apex Legends Season 13 1.99 patch. For more, check out how the ranked reset works.
