Apex Legends 1.59 Patch Notes: Legend VO, Private Match Bug and Skins Issues All Fixed

Apex Legends Season 8 is finally here, but Respawn's work on the battle royale shooter is never done.

The game's latest patch, Hotfix 1.59, has arrived.

Players have reported being stuck in lobbies that are running in slow-motion, being unable to login, and even losing access to hard-earned skins, but these haven't been addressed here.

Instead, there's a focus on private matches, Legend VO, and skins causing issues when ADS.

Here are all the fixes fans can expect, although we expect a further patch to come next.

Apex Legends 1.59 Patch Notes

  • Legend Banter VO is not playing as intended
  • Errors related to Private Match
  • Legend Skins bug causing issues when aiming down sights
  • Bugs related to Heirloom Store
  • Rampart Event Skin (“Gold Standard”) has discolored teeth

These are taken from the Apex Legends Trello Board, but with the patch arriving at around 480 MB, it would be fair to say that it's a pretty modest update.
