APEX LEGENDS™ MOBILE COLD SNAP PATCH NOTES
INCOMING TRANSMISSION FROM THE DEV TEAM!
With the release of Cold Snap, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on and celebrate the launch of Apex Legends Mobile and give you an update from the development team!
First of all, we want to thank everyone that’s joined us on our launch. We are so humbled and grateful for the community’s response to Apex Legends Mobile. We’re blown away by the passion and creativity of the community. We’re excited to iterate on the game with you—Prime Time was just the beginning!
We really appreciate you all being vocal and sharing your feedback with us. This is how we’ll continue to make the game better: with your continued feedback, be it good or critical. Some of the things we’ve heard from the community as urgent fixes are:
- Frustrations around the Ranked System
- How Bans are handled in Normal Matches
- Matchmaking optimizations
- Performance optimizations for devices and servers
While we’re not responding to every thread that’s out there, we are listening to the community and taking in the feedback. Much of the feedback we’ve received is either currently being addressed by the team or we have plans for it in the near future. We’re continually checking our data to evaluate the game’s health and performance, and we’ll be relying on that as well as the community’s feedback as we collectively build on the game together.
Notably, we’ve been making some adjustments to our matchmaking and systems that impact servers. Our goal with Apex Legends Mobile is to facilitate a highly competitive mobile experience. This will be a space where we’ll continue to iterate, with the key focus on low latency (so you’re playing with players that have a similar experience on their device) and matchmaking with players of similar skill sets.
Regarding the topic of bots, the dev team does see value in employing bots in various parts of the game. However, our main goal is to provide a competitive gaming experience for our players above all else. Exposure to bots should diminish as you play more and increase your skill level. We’ll continue to assess and iterate on our matchmaking over the upcoming seasons. Please continue to share your thoughts.
We are eager to share more of what’s coming for Apex Mobile when we’re ready! Keep an eye out on our official communication channels and you’ll be the first to know.
Thank you so much for your continued support of Apex Legends Mobile. We’ll see you on the drop ship!
And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming. Legends…. Welcome to Cold Snap!
In this update, we’re releasing fan favourite Loba, a limited-time game mode, and brand new skins and cosmetics for maximum icy cold drip! Ready? Let’s get frosty!!
When Loba was nine, she looked on as simulacrum hitman Revenant killed her family. Left with nothing, Loba survived by picking pockets. Everything changed when she broke into a supposedly impenetrable facility and got her hands on the Jump Drive tech stored inside. With her new teleportation bracelet, the most secure and unattainable items were within her reach. So was her dream of living a high life. Now, she’s joined the apex games for a little R&R: riches and revenge.
Passive: Eye For Quality
Nearby Epic and Legendary loot can be seen through walls.
Tactical: Burglars Best Friend.
Teleport instantly by throwing your jump drive bracelet to a targeted location.
Ultimate Ability: Black Market Boutique
Play Loba and unlock her unique legend progression perks to steal the win from the competition. You can find Loba in the shop or at level 25 of the Battle Pass. Some of Loba’s perks include the ability to gain extra loot from crates and even steal her squadmates’ banners!
NEW LIMITED-TIME MODE
TOWN TAKEOVER: THE CLIMATIZER
Winter Warfare has taken over World’s Edge. The climatizer will turn off and on during the course of a match covering parts of World’s Edge with snow! Drop into Worlds Edge for frosty rewards! When the Climatizer is on, check your mini-map for Frosted loot boxes. Collect diamonds from frosted-over loot boxes and foes alike to spend on rare items in the seasonal shop!
