Apex Legends Valentine's Day Update Encourages Loving Your Team
Apex Legends has not been out long, but the game has already gotten its first update wrapped up in a neat little Valentine’s Day theme. No one has to be lonely when you’re in a three-person squad climbing your way to the top of the battle royale!
The patch notes, which were posted today on Reddit, don’t name a lot of changes, but there are a few for new updates for the season. There are two new cosmetic items to earn to follow the Valentine’s Day theme, including the “Through the Heart” Longbow Epic DMR skin and the “Love of the Game” Pathfinder banner frame.
Additionally, a new badge has been added for players to get from now until later next week. Starting today, if you revive a player on your team, you’ll get a “Live Die Live” badge. You only have until February 19 to do so, so make sure you show one of your teammates that they’re your special Valentine.
The non-Valentines parts of the patch mostly affect balance and stability. Respawn has tried to respond to feedback about crashes, server issues, and friends list errors in the last week. Bloodhound’s special ability, Eye of the Allfather, now lasts for one second less than it did before.
With the game hitting a playerbase of around 25 million accounts, I wonder what the studio is going to do for the first major update of the game. Apex Legends is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
