Apex Legends Update 1.1 Patch Notes: Squad Invites, More Mute Buttons

Respawn Entertainment’s latest update to Apex Legends, Update 1.1, is out for PC and console players. It caused some early problems for players, resetting some accounts, according to Respawn’s Reddit post-but Respawn says those issues have been fixed.

Update 1.1 includes some interesting quality-of-life changes for Apex Legends that should make it even easier to create better, longer-lasting squads of the players you meet when firing up the game. Apex now includes an option that lets players invite the members of their last squad back into their party-perfect for those times when your team of randos from matchmaking actually turn out to be pretty good.

The option for squad invites is now on the Friends menu, which means you can opt out if you don’t want any matchmade players trying to follow you back to your squad. The patch also has a few other changes worked in, including access to a Mute button on the Legend select screen, and more options on PC for reporting players for cheating or other issues. PC players will also get more information if the game crashes to help them deal with the trouble.

You can read the full patch notes below. It’ll give you something to do, since Apex Legends is currently down while Respawn deals with the progression bug.
