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.
Once the repair is completed, you should be all good to go. Fingers crossed that this solution works out just as well for you as it did for us.
That’s everything you need to know about how to fix the ‘patching files’ issue for Apex Legends. Be sure to search Twinfinite for more tips, tricks, and other useful info on the game if you’re in need of any other pointers.
