Apex Legends Update 1.65 Patch Notes And Latest News

Apex Legends players might notice a new update is available for the game.

This is version 1.65 for the game and will only require a download of around 168MB for your PS4, Xbox or PC platform.

At the time of writing though, there doesn't appear to be any official patch notes from the developers at Respawn.

Respawn developer John Larson said in a recent Reddit AMA that they were planning to nerf Lifeline’s abilities in a future update. Could it arrive with 1.65? That's hard to say, but more than likely this update s likely an early patch ahead of the new War Games event, which starts on Tuesday afternoon.

We imagine Respawn will share some patch notes eventually, and we'll be sure to update this page with all the details.

But for now, we'll just remind you of all the cool events which are coming to the game as part of the War Games event.

Apex Legends Update 1.65 Patch Notes

Second Chance (Tuesday, 4/13 – Thursday, 4/15): Kicking off the event, this modifier grants each Legend one free respawn per match; once a Legend is killed, a Respawn Token is consumed to rise again from the player’s current location retaining all their weapons and gear. After a short duration, the player respawns high in the air to skydive back into the action.

Ultra Zones (Thursday, 4/15 – Monday, 4/19): Get ready for multiple Hot Zones within a single map, and for more epic loot and gold items. Each Hot Zone is enveloped in a Flash Point – the enormous, glowing bubbles that replenish HP and shields when you stand in them. In this mode, consumable items are still available as normal throughout the loot pool.

Auto Banners (Monday, 4/19 – Wednesday, 4/21): Adding a rather small but spicy change to squadmate respawning, this modifier lets players automatically retrieve their Squadmates Banner Cards! Players don’t need to loot their death box to retrieve their Banner Cards — they can just head straight to a respawn beacon. The loot pool has been altered to contain more Mobile Respawn Beacons too.

Killing Time (Wednesday, 4/21 – Friday, 4/23): This event speeds up the match as Legends fall; during a round, whenever a Legend dies, the round time gets reduced. If any given round is a massacre, the ring will close quickly so players have to keep an eye on the round timer to survive this modifier.

Armor Regen (Friday, 4/23 – Tuesday, 4/27): Closing out the War Games, the Armor Regen will regenerate over time at a rate of 12 points per second in this final mode. Whenever players take damage, their armor will begin regenerating after an 8-second delay; this delay is doubled to 16 seconds (versus 8 seconds) if a player’s armor gets cracked.
