APEX Legends update 1.1 available for download, full patch release notes revealed

Respawn has released a brand new update for its free to play battle royale game, APEX Legends. According to the release notes, this patch adds the ability to party up with the last squad you played with, as well as a Mute button during the intro and Legend selection.

Moreover, patch 1.1 features additional behind-the-scenes improvements for squashing cheaters, makes small improvements to the UI for customizing Legends, adds option to turn off lighting on compatible hardware and adds  informative messages that appear on PC for crashes.

Naturally, this patch also fixes a couple of bugs/issues that have been reported by the game’s community. For instance, it fixes an issue where the Battle Pass rewards page would not have a default item selected, resulting in a mostly blank page and a bug with Banner Cards not showing up during and at the end of a match, and it also packs various stability improvements.

As always, Origin will download this patch the next time you launch its client and you can find its complete changelog below.
