‘Apex Legends’ Valentine’s Day Skins Temporarily Removed

Respawn Entertainment's Apex Legends has been a hit since launch. The game has racked up over 25 million players, the first Twitch Rivals tournament featuring the new battle royale experience was held, and the first event has kicked off in-game with Valentine's Day goodies for all. That said, it looks like some issues have popped up, which has caused Respawn to disable some of the event skins.

Taking to Twitter, the Apex Legends account informed everyone of the problems plaguing some of the Valentine's Day skins. "We discovered an unfortunate issue with the Through the Heart Valentines DMR skin, Gibraltar's Daemon Hunter and Neural Net skins that are causing crashes on Xbox One," they said. "We've disabled the skins while we investigate."

While it is unfortunate that this sort of thing would arise, it's good to see that Respawn isn't letting it slow them down. It's safe to say that Apex Legends is continuing to rise, and even though it hasn't been two weeks since the game's surprise launch, the free-to-play battle royale title is well on its way to becoming a true champion in the genre.
