Apex Legends Update ‘Preparing’ stuck on download – how to fix Season 5 patch?

Apex Legends Season 5 update has just launched on PS4, Xbox One and PC this evening.

But some players are reporting a problem with the games latest download which should bring a wealth of new content and the new Legend Loba to the game.

Players are reporting that they are stuck on 'preparing' when attempting to download.

"My thing is stuck at 4.01gb while preparing and won't go up at all" one player wrote whilst trying to download.

Another, facing a similar scenario said: "Anyone else having trouble with #ApexLegends #Season5 update? Mine stuck at preparing."

At present, neither EA Help or Respawn has responded to the issues or a fix on how to correct the issue facing players.

One possible fix for the 'stuck on preparing' issue for Origin players to try was posted 2 months back on the Apex Legends Sub-Reddit.

No players have posted to say if the fix works with the current problems facing players, but it's worth a go.

  2. "Application Settings" top menu

  3. turn off "Automatic game updates"

  4. "Orgin" menu at top and "Exit"

  5. start Origin again

  7. select "Repair"

  8. done. it'll repair & update your game
