Although the Battle Royale genre is overcrowded with video games, Apex Legends remains one of the most popular games in the niche.
Developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, it has over 100 million players worldwide.
But over the past few days, players have been complaining about various issues affecting the game, such as chat not working on Xbox and resetting settings after next-gen update.
And as if the aforementioned issues weren’t troubling enough, Apex Legends players are now reporting that they’re getting a “The server received bad player data from storage” error message.
Many say they can’t join matches and get kicked out of the round after the error appears. Common troubleshooting solutions such as restarting the system and reinstalling the game make no difference.
You can see in the image below what the error message looks like for some.
Here are the reports of Apex Legends players who are getting the error message “The server received incorrect player data from storage”.
I’m on Playstation and after a rank I get a disconnect talking about the server that received bad player data from storage-PDef version DG-ADBC11F92687A009 not in manifest. (Error because persistence_enforce_manifest is enabled.). How can I fix this?
I just started getting a ton too. I can’t join any games with my buddy, he logs in and I get the above (with the error clock) or I just stay in the lobby.
Unfortunately, the developers of Apex Legends (Respawn Entertainment) have yet to acknowledge or comment on the issue.
We hope the developers look into the issue and fix it as soon as possible as it makes the game unplayable for those on consoles.
