New Apex Legends PC Update Patches Game Crashes

about X hours ago from

Respawn has released the patch notes for a PC update for Apex Legends. The update is already live and is specifically aimed at fixing game crashes on PC.

"The game should now write an apex_crash.txt file to your My Documents folder when it crashes," Respawn community manager Jay Frechette wrote in a Reddit blog post. "The apex_crash.txt files we got from players had a lot of information that we needed… We had never seen the crash in any of our internal testing before, but now we could finally reproduce the bug and that meant we could find it and fix it."

More updates for Apex Legends are planned for next week. Frechette didn't provide specifics, but did list several issues that Respawn is working towards fixing. Those broad problems are outlined below.

The CW's Supernatural Will End After Season 15

It was bound to happen one day, but that doesn't make it any easier of a pill to swallow. The CW's Supernatural--which recently celebrated its 300th episode--will officially come to an end after the previously-announced 15th season, which will premiere in the fall of 2019.

The news was announced by stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, and Misha Collins in a social media video, where they revealed the crew of the show has just been informed of the decision. "Though we're very, very excited about moving into our 15th season, it will be out last," Ackles said. "Fifteen years of a show that has changed my life, I know it's certainly changed these two guys' life. We wanted you to hear it from us that, though we're excited about next year, it will be the finale. The big grand finale of an institution."

Hey #SPNFamily here’s a little message from @JensenAckles @mishacollins and me. I’m so grateful for the family that’s been built because of the show. Excuse me while i go cry. pic.twitter.com/QDXDsAyIfK

Fortnite Week 4 Secret Banner Location Guide (Season 8 Discovery Challenge)

Week 4 of Fortnite Season 8 has arrived, and with it a new batch of challenges to complete across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. Clear this week's challenges and you'll earn more Battle Stars, leveling your Battle Pass up and bringing you another step closer to unlocking Season 8's new skins and rewards. But there's another good reason to complete all of the tasks; doing so will also clear one of this season's Discovery challenges, earning you a special loading screen that points to a free Battle Star or Banner hiding somewhere around the island.

Which of those two items you'll be able to find depends on which loading screen you've unlocked, which in turn is determined by how many weekly sets of challenges you've completed this season. If you've finished four weeks' worth of them, you'll receive the loading screen pictured below. This one features a regal Peely being carried up the volcano while a procession of lowlier bananas trails behind. Look closely at the background, however, and you'll be able to spot a Banner hanging from one of the torches lining the path.

Sekiro Guide Roundup: Beginner's Tips, Ogre Strategy, Dragonrot Cure, And More

In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, From Software takes a step away from the stamina-focused action RPG gameplay it popularized with Demon's Souls, the Dark Souls trilogy, and Bloodborne. If you think your experience with the Soulsborne games is going to make your journey in Sekiro an easy one, think again.

There are plenty of similar themes to be sure. Even though Sekiro takes place in a more realistic setting in comparison to the likes of Lodran or Yharnam, Ashina is still a society on the edge of complete collapse and home to a host of nightmarish monsters and god-like figures. The playable protagonist, Wolf, is also a stoic, undying figure, whose ability to return from the dead is the only reason he's able to overcome the powerful enemies he encounters.

The similarities pretty much end there, though. Combat in Sekiro is focused on posture instead of stamina, for example, so now deflecting enemy strikes is the ideal path to success. New attacks are unlocked via experience as opposed to weapons found as well. There are plenty of other differences--you can even swim in Sekiro. From Software has crafted a completely different game, and it can all be a little overwhelming to get a grasp on it all. Especially since, without any co-op multiplayer, you'll have to take on most of the game alone.
