SALT LAKE CITY — “Apex Legends” gamers complained Wednesday that they lost all the progress they made in their games after the game’s latest update.
Respawn, one of the creators of the game, said on Twitter that it would review the issue and release a new update as soon as possible.
The 1.1 update didn’t change much in the game. The newest addition through the update allows you to re-party with your squad after the previous match. But gamers complained on social media that their unlocked reward items disappeared after the update.
“This is great, only the update wiped my stats, level, battle pass levels, unlocked legends, skins, crafting metals, legend tokens and refunded my coins for buying the battle pass and reset everything back to 0,” wrote Reddit user UrsineVulpine, according to Kotaku, a video games news website.
Respawn cautioned gamers about making any purchases.
“Until the issue has been resolved we recommend players do not buy or craft anything. We’ll continue to provide updates, along with an ETA, as information comes in,” the studio wrote on Twitter.
Apex Legends’ official Twitter account tweeted that it knew about the issue, according to Polygon.
