Since Apex Legends launched last week, it’s had fewer bugs and issues than most battle royale games in the past year, but some players are still experiencing game crashes. In particular, players on PS4 have reported an Apex Legends CE-34878-0 error code causing the game to crash upon launching a match, with a blue screen appearing just as the countdown timer finishes. This issue is exclusive to players on PS4, forcing the game to restart but then crashing again in most cases. Read on to find out how to fix blue screen on PS4.

Apex Legends CE-34878-0

The Apex Legends CE-34878-0 error is not a surprising issue on the PS4. In fact, players have reported this problem across a handful of recent games, most recently causing crashes in Black Ops 4. Sony has released an official fix to alleviate the problem, which is fully explained in our previous CE-34878-0 error code guide, but this doesn’t work 100 percent of the time for Apex Legends players. Instead, this error can be fixed by changing the settings in Apex Legends, preventing the game from crashing any further.

Some players have reported to EA that the Apex Legends CE-34878-0 error can be fixed by going into the game’s audio settings, and turning off the “Convert Incoming Voice To Chat Text” setting. Try this method, and restart the game again if it does not work immediately. Multiple players have confirmed that this solved the issue for them. Alternatively, players on the PS4 Pro have found that the console’s boost mode would cause the Apex Legends CE-34878-0 error, which would then stop once they turned off the boost mode. If all else fails, make sure that the game is fully updated with the most recent fixes, and consider reporting the issue in EA’s dedicated technical issues forum for Apex Legends.
