The First Descendant: What does the LE 13 error code mean?

Key art for The First Descendant.

It appears that The First Descendant is experiencing some sort of server outage this morning, as players are flocking to social media to post about disconnects and the inability to log in. This is reportedly happening across all platforms.

Here’s what we know right now:

What is error code LE:13?

We don’t know what this error code means specifically because the game is brand new and this error has not been documented before, but it appears to be a complete server outage at this point. Developers have yet to address the outage on social media, despite starting a thread to report errors yesterday and having tweeted about problems earlier this morning.

Hopefully, a fix is on its way shortly. This game-specific server outage comes just a day after Xbox Live had a major server issue.

Nexon's bombastic Unreal Engine 5 RPG looter shooter just got its official title ahead of an appearance at Gamescom: The First Descendant.
Nexon -- a South Korean video game developer and publisher known for games like MapleStory, KartRider, DNF Duel, and LawBreakers - first revealed this game under the title Project Magnum in September 2021. It looks like a mixture of every major AAA gaming trend. The First Descendant will be a free-to-play, sci-fi, cooperative shooter. Hot off the heels of games like Outriders, The First Descendant is all about mowing down hordes of enemies and giant bosses with friends to unlock new loot to upgrade your character with. 
The First Descendant│Official Trailer Teaser Reveal (4K)
Taking notes from hero shooters, players will choose from at least 12 characters, all of whom have unique abilities; meanwhile, each character's grappling hook and the game's fast-paced gunplay also look like they'll keep the action moving. While it isn't the most unique-looking game out there, The First Descendant looks pretty in Unreal Engine 5 and could strike a chord with players if its gameplay is enjoyable and the microtransactions aren't overbearing.
While we got a brief new teaser with this title change confirmation, Nexon also confirmed that it would show a lengthier trailer and reveal even more about The First Descendant at Gamescom 2022. After that, interested players will have a chance to go hands-on with the game before the end of the year. A Steam beta will occur between October 20 and October 26 this year. There's no word on when a console beta will happen, but people can sign-up for the PC beta on the game's Steam page.
Although The First Descendant's beta in October is limited to Steam, the final version of the game will be available across PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X at an unspecified later date.

The studio released the statement on X (formerly Twitter) and on its website, saying that it's received criticism from a lot of areas, including Japanese players who leveled accusations at the developer for skewing history with Yasuke, a legendary African samurai who's one of the game's two main playable characters, the other being the Japanese shinobi Naoe. In response, Ubisoft stated that its Assassin's Creed games are primarily historical fiction made with the help of historians, other experts, and in-depth research.
