Apex Legends is a remarkably complete battle royale game that was just suddenly out, offering direct competition to the biggest hitters on the market and even taking some of the sheen off of EA’s other new game, Anthem. It’s been a small phenomenon so far, but it does have some optimisation issues and things that need looking into, one of those being the CE-34878-0 error on PS4.
If you’ve seen this, it’s no doubt come in quick frequency or at an inopportune time during a match. I, personally, had about 1 in 3 matches crash just as I was jumping, which would then set off a chain reaction of three consecutive errors in quick succession. I can close my eyes and still see that blue hue. However, the Apex Legends CE-34878-0 PS4 error may actually be –partly– your own fault.
If you scroll over to the options, which are quite varied for a console FPS (always nice to see), there’s a curious option called “convert incoming voice chat to text” that doesn’t seem to do anything, apart from brick the game itself. Turn that off right away and you should see some improvements almost immediately. It looks like an interesting feature (so much so that I just turned it on for the hell of it) for the future, just not one that you want to have on right now.
As a bonus, I’d recommend that you turn off Boost Mode if you’re using a PS4 Pro. The Pro really seems to struggle to parse Apex Legends with this on and sounds like a helicarrier. Turn that off and it should be quieter.
