Apex Legends: How to Fix Patching Files Issue

Apex Legends Season 11: Escape has just gone live, but some players aren’t exactly having the best experience when it comes to updating the game — myself included. If you’re stuck waiting forever for the update to finish in Origin, we can help out with the details below. Here’s how to fix the ‘patching files’ issue for Apex Legends.

How to Fix Apex Legends ‘Patching Files’ Issue

First off, this guide will be explaining what worked for us, so, hopefully, it’ll work for you as well. The first thing you’ll want to do is click on the game’s update icon in Origin, then press Pause Download. Next, you’ll want to open up Task Manager and completely close Origin.

After closing it, right-click on the Origin application and press Run as Administrator to start it back up. Go back to the Apex Legends icon, click it, and this time, select Repair. This repair process might take a little while, but you shouldn’t be stuck nearly as long as with the ‘patching files’ hang-up.
