VALENTINES DAYS

  • Added "Live Die Live" Banner Badge: Revive a member of your squad between February 13 and February 19 to earn this limited-time badge.
  • Added Valentine's Day cosmetic items to the store. They will be live and available in the store starting February 13 until February 19 and then they're gone!
    • "Through the Heart" Longbow Epic DMR skin
    • "Love of the Game" Pathfinder banner frame

STABILITY / BUGS / PERFORMANCE / QoL

  • Various improvements and tweaks to UI.
  • Extended timeout that was causing players with slower hard drives to crash.
  • Addressed a number of client and server stability issues.
  • Fixed exploit where you could keep duplicating items in your inventory.
  • Addressed a number of stability and performance issues.
  • Fixed issue where players would get a gray screen in lobby when connecting for the first time.
  • Fixed issue where your friends list showed all your friends as offline and unable to party.
  • Shortened duration of Bloodhound's Eye of the Allfather clones to remain in the world by one second.

GEAR

  • Arc Star now displays a grenade warning indicator.

KINGS CANYON

  • Addressed a number bugs with map geo like holes you could fall through and areas that players could get stuck in plus a bunch of other polish issues.

PLAYSTATION PLUS PLAY PACK

  • Art updated for the Playstation Plus Play Pack to the Flatline skin and Banner Card and changed the names to Deep Blue. This will affect all players that already have been rewarded the skins as well.

We still have a lot of work to do and we hear those frustrated by disconnects and crashes and are working to improve stability and performance as well as provide more visibility for everyone.

While this update doesn't offer much in terms of balance for the game's various Legends, it does suggest Respawn is fully committed to keeping the community active at the height of its popularity. Most service-based games received Valentine's Day content this week, so it's cool to see Apex Legends join the party. Especially considering this game is just a little over a week old, what Respawn continues to accomplish is truly impressive.

Even if this patch is mostly quality-of-life stuff, the addition of a free badge might be a preview of the Battle Pass content to come in March. This particular challenge is focused on revives, but other ones could feasibly offer cosmetics for thresholds based on kills and looting as well. For now, this update is enough to keep the Apex hype train rolling.

Apex Legends is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The Valentine's Days update is going live on all platforms.
