One of the biggest problems with Apex Construct for PSVR is the lack of in-game menu. Should you want to change any settings or simple go back to the beginning, you can’t do it from within the game. It seemed like a massive oversight on release, and it was something our reviewer Kyle found to be annoying, among other things.
The good news is that there’s a new update available today for Apex Contstuct on PSVR. The new update, version 1.03, has gone live today and with it comes a whole bunch of tweaks and fixes that should make the game a little more enjoyable. The full patch notes are down below.
Apex Construct Update Version 1.03 Patch Notes
- Changed input method for Snap Turning. You now use the buttons just like you do for Smooth Turning. Sorry about that! Tutorial in mission “Hello World” has been updated to reflect this.
- Added a Quick Menu where you can access the Settings from within the game. Accessing this menu pauses the game.
- Fix for issue where an AI enemy would sometimes spawn in an immortal & blind state, and lead to the mission being unable to progress.
- Several free locomotion fixes, among them an altered collision check when approaching computer terminals. You can now walk up closer and lean over to them without getting pushed back.
- Raised the walk and sprint speeds for free locomotion.
- Added keyboard highlighter. Should now be easier to see which button you are about to press.
- You can no longer teleport or use free locomotion on top of things that you carry in your hand
- Audio fixes on electrified water
