Since yesterday, the fans of Apex Legends can download a monster update that takes the game to season 2, entitled Battle Charge. To accommodate the introduction of new content, the patch in question has an approximate weight of 20 GB in the console versions of the game, which are reduced to 18 GB in the PC counterpart.
With some numbers So impressive, it is not strange that the community wonders how much Apex Legends will weigh in a matter of a few years. Fortunately, Respawn Entertainment has recognized that it is an extraordinarily heavy download, but a necessary one to take the game to a new level.
” When we publish to patch, we normally send the new content in additional files that share the original files, so that the updates are as light as possible for the players ” explains Jayfresh, community manager at Respawn. ” However, the cost of this is that of the old content stays next to the new, growing more and more with the passage of time. New players must download it to start playing, and everyone should keep it on their discs. To lower this cost, we periodically publish a new build [trunk version of the game] that removes the outdated content ” Since Respawn explain that this type of updates are necessary to refresh the content of the game, and that they will notify in advance when there are more cases like this.
Among the main attractions of Battle Load are the inclusion of a new legend (Wattson), a new weapon (L-Star LMG) the debut of the Matched Leagues for the most competitive players and a renewal of the only current map of the game, the Canyon of the Kings. If you want to get the most out of season 2, you can also take a look at the new battle pass.
