Sadly it's causing issues for Steam Deck / Linux players. ARTICLE UPDATED Read the full article here: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2024/05/apex-legends-upheaval-update-live-with-eos-anti-cheat-breaking-it-on-steam-deck-linux NEW UPDATES COMING WITH APEX LEGENDS™: UPHEAVALMay 7, 2024 - Community AnnouncementsNEW UPDATES COMING WITH APEX LEGENDS™: UPHEAVAL Want to watch the world burn, Legends? Get ready to disturb the peace, because upheaval is upon us! Bend the world with Alter and her Void-based abilities, then sow chaos in Solos Takeover—with kitted guns and new ways to dodge (and deal) death. Descend into a new age of Broken Moon, unearthing new POIs and faster paths to mayhem. More fights? That just means more opportunities to slice in style with the latest customizable Apex Artifacts. It’s time to sew mayhem across the Outlands, so let’s get to it! TAKEOVER: SOLOS https://media.contentapi.ea.com/content/dam/apex-legends/common/upheaval-game-updates/r5-s21-launch-portalambush-b-v02-1.png.adapt.1920w.png Well, well, well…looks like Solos is coming back after all! Replacing Duos from the beginning of the season, take on the Outlands by yourself in this revamped variant. We’ve taken aspects of some of our most popular modes and integrated them to keep things interesting: use your Battle Sense to detect nearby enemies, tear things up with pre-kitted weapons and attachments, and keep the fight going with auto heal and Second Chance mechanics. We get it–sometimes you want to drop hot and heavy without having to carry the squad. It’s every Legend for themselves…for now. Solos Takeover is live May 7, 2024 to June 24, 2024. NEW LEGEND: ALTER https://media.contentapi.ea.com/content/dam/apex-legends/common/upheaval-game-updates/r5-s21-launch-alterbase-v03-1.png.adapt.1920w.png When Alter emerged from her dimension into another with her past held close to the chest, she had only two things: her interdimensional traveling Void tech, and a desire to have fun. She did what she wanted when she wanted, never needing to stick around for the consequences of her actions. Morality and responsibility were things of the past as Alter traveled throughout different realities, drawn to worlds on the edge of complete destruction. Whether something devastating was already happening or she helped usher in the apocalypse herself, Alter was always there to watch whatever catastrophe ensued. She loved seeing worlds end and seeing the true nature of the people come out within the chaos. However, in some ruined dimensions, there was a common denominator that intrigued her–one that would lead her to witness the grandest apocalypse of all. Seeking out the next world it would condemn, Alter has landed in ours, ready to do what’s necessary to see her wish fulfilled. PASSIVE: GIFT FROM THE RIFT Alter can see and remotely interact with nearby death boxes to claim a single item. While she cannot take shield cores through the void, any other prize can be snatched from afar. TACTICAL: VOID PASSAGE Alter fires a void blast from her tail that shatters against a surface to open a dimensional gateway through from one side to the other for a short time. Crossing through the portal is instantaneous, and can be done from either direction, but travelers will remain phased briefly after exiting. ...Apex Legends: Into The Void TrailerMay 6, 2024 - Community AnnouncementsWithin the void lies unfiltered chaos.

Last year, many believed triple-A military shooters, Call of Duty and Battlefield, could take over the battle royale genre in 2019. But with the hype for both now at an all-time low, EA and Respawn's brilliant marketing strategy, improved BR mechanics, and free-to-play format have resulted in Apex Legends becoming the most successful new game since Fortnite. Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was actually the first game to take attention away from Fortnite for a whole week during the end of 2018; peaking with 508k concurrent viewers on Twitch and holding the #1 position for 8 days in a row. But unlike Black Ops 4, which saw its viewer base decline by 66% in its first week, Apex Legends has kept the interest of top streamers and its viewer base has grown over time -- keeping it in the #1 position on Twitch for a record-breaking 10 days in a row. Yesterday’s first-ever tournament for the game was Apex Legends' biggest day yet with a peak of 670k concurrent viewers during Twitch Rivals where team Kings Canyon’s Ninja, King Richard, and Dizzy took home the W. Compared to the game’s peak viewer count of 486k viewers on its launch day, Apex Legends has since seen viewership rise by 38%; which is a great sign that Apex could have some serious staying power at the top, especially when considering the hype for most new games usually fades away by their second week on Twitch. Player counts for Apex Legends also seem to be aligning once again with viewers' interest on Twitch. Respawn’s CEO, Vince Zampella, announced that the game broke 10 million unique players and 1 million concurrent players just 72 hours after launching. And just 4 days after his first announcement, Zampella also revealed that Apex Legends has already more than doubled that number with 25 million unique players and well over 2 million concurrent players at its peak. Seeing Apex Legends grow so quickly is reminiscent of Fornite’s meteoric rise after Epic shifted their focus to the battle royale genre. Unfortunately, at the moment all we have are official announcements from Respawn regarding the game’s continued growth... So for now, viewership on Twitch is currently our best indicator of the current state of the game, and as long as it keeps increasing at the top of Twitch, it's safe to say that the player counts are too.
