    Lead Producer on Anthem, Ben Irving, Leaves BioWare

    This probably isn't a good sign.

    Anthem has had its fair share of disappointment since even before the game was launched back in the far off time of February 2019. Today, yet another potential black mark can be added to the books. Lead producer for Anthem, Ben Irving, announced that he is leaving BioWare for another studio.

    This may not be a sign of anything, but it rarely ends up being a good sign when the lead producer on a project decides to quit and go elsewhere. BioWare Edmonton has already moved on to Dragon Age development while BioWare...

    A Cataclysm Hits Anthem, But Nobody Knew

    The end came not with a bang, but a whimper.

    Yesterday, BioWare and EA released the long-awaited Cataclysm update for Anthem. This had promised to be a major event in the Anthem timeline but it was met with some rather unfortunate setbacks when BioWare decided to push back nearly the entirety of their planned update release schedule for the game. The first major delay came back in April when several major features, including Cataclysm, were delayed until an undetermined time.

    It looks as though that time is now, at least as far as the Cataclysm...

    BioWare Breaks Silence - Launches Anthem Test Server and 1.2.0 Update

    It's the first new Anthem news in over a month.

    If you were to ask BioWare how games as a service (GAAS) was working out for Anthem you may be met with some anxious tugging at collars and cold sweats in response. For well over a month, the EA owned studio has been radio silent on just what in the world was going on with the game.

    May mostly came and went without so much as a peep about the big Cataclysm event that was originally intended to begin this month. In fact, there wasn't really a peep about anything else either. The studio had gone dark...

  • Anthem Falls Out of Top 49 Most Played Games on Xbox

    Anthem Falls Out of Top 49 Most Played Games on Xbox

    It's being beat by games that have been out for far longer.

    This week, Microsoft updated their most played games section on their store. These are the most played games in the Xbox ecosystem from 1 to 49. Why 49 and not 50? How am I supposed to know? The important part here is that Anthem has now fallen off of this most played list.

    The last handful of games on the list include Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Borderlands 2, Brawlhalla, and Battlefield 1. That's Battlefield 1, not the more recent Battlefield 5 which is actually looking to be the 23rd...

    Anthem's Dwindling Playerbase is Causing Issues with Matchmaking


    Less than a week after BioWare announced an indefinite delay of most of their Anthem roadmap comes word that its dwindling player base is having some issues with proper matchmaking. Given that BioWare hasn't set a new release date for the numerous gameplay additions and improvements, the player base seems to be dying off fast enough that it's causing issues for those that are still playing.

    According to a new report from Forbes, players are finding that they are unable to consistently find full teams for matchmaking activities. In Anthem, players can...

    BioWare, ArenaNet, and Sucker Punch Vets Announce Hindsight 20/20


    Triple-I Games is made up of some industry veterans hailing from studios like BioWare, ArenaNet, and Sucker Punch. These devs have come together and are working on a game called Hindsight 20/20. As of right now, the game is looking at a 2020 release on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.

    Hindsight 20/20 is being billed as a single-player action-adventure title that includes some morality-based decisions. I think I know what the former BioWare devs focused on with this one! ...

    BioWare Delays Cataclysm and Other Major Content Planned for Anthem


    Today, the 1.1.0 update for Anthem was released by BioWare. This update includes a few significant improvements to the quality of life for those playing the game. Notably, players can now actually change their gear during missions, strongholds, and during Freeplay without having to return to Fort Tarsis or the Launch Bay.

    Awesome! Seriously, this was desperately needed.

    In addition to this, BioWare added in a new stronghold for players to dive into today. It's called The Sunken Cell and is tailored to those that have completed the main...

  • Anthem 1.0.4 Patch Released - Allows Players to Access Forge Without a Load Screen


    In reading through the 1.0.4 patch notes for Anthem, there was something that caught my eye. No, it wasn't the improvements to the loot drops. No, it wasn't the buffs and changes to various Javelin components. No, it wasn't the multitude of bug fixes and general gameplay improvements. No, it wasn't the addition of Nvidia Highlights support, nor the addition of multiple FOV sliders for the PC, nor the addition of DLSS support for RTX cards.

    Nope, it was the fact that BioWare patched out a load screen. Specifically, they patched out a load screen when...

    BioWare Releases Anthem 1.0.3 Patch in Rare Saturday Update


    The 1.0.3 patch for Anthem just dropped earlier today for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 players. While it isn't unnecessarily unusual to see another patch released for a game that has had a few issues, it is unusual to see a patch released on a weekend. Yet here we are on a Saturday talking about the latest patch for the game. That's fine, I didn't want a day off either.

    Notable changes in this patch include a huge number of fixes and improvements to the game. These include fixes for crashes, fixes for Titans that spawned too frequently, and more....

  • Players Discover that Anthem's Most Powerful Weapons are the Ones You Start With


    Today, a little "PSA" went up on the Anthem subreddit that says clearly that the level 1 weapons players start the game with are the most powerful weapons in the game.

    If you think that doesn't make much sense, you would be correct but there are multiple confirmations showing that this is indeed what is going on. Reddit user YeetLordSupreme found that a level 1 common Defender rifle can take down a basic enemy in just four shots. Meanwhile, they found that their level 45 masterwork "Ralner's Blaze" rifle takes six shots to take down the very same enemy.

    This is in spite of the basic weapon showing damage of just 286 per shot compared to the 1184 damage per shot with the level 45 weapon. ...

    Sony Reportedly Offering Full Refunds on Anthem for Some PlayStation 4 Users


    Despite Sony having one of the most strict refund policies around, it seems as though they are making some exceptions for Anthem on the PlayStation 4. Crashes and bugs aren't really all that uncommon for games these days. However, Anthem seems to be taking things a step further by completely turning off the PlayStation 4 in some instances.

    This Reddit thread made just a few hours ago is just one of many reports of this particular issue happening to someone. A couple of users replied that they managed to do the unthinkable and received a full refund...

    Sales Figures for Anthem are Half Those of Andromeda in UK


    As far as physical retail sales go, Anthem was the best selling game in the UK in its first week of release.

    That's the extent of the good news.

    The bad news is that it sold roughly half of the total number of units BioWare's previous title sold in its first week. That's right, Mass "My Face is Tired" Effect Andromeda outsold BioWare's latest and, er, let's just leave it at "latest."

    Digital sales for these titles are not included in these sales figures. Meaning that the number of units sold on services...

    Anthem Officially Launches Today


    Despite the game being available now since February 15 under some circumstances, today marks the day in which Anthem has "officially" been released. While Origin Access and EA Access subscribers have already had a chance to play and, in some cases, "complete" the game, this will be the first time most players will get to dive in.

    Today's release is accompanied by the "day one" patch, which we already provided the changelog for the other day. Anthem allows you and some friends (or random people if you prefer) to assume...

    Day One Patch Notes for Anthem Released


    The "day one patch" for Anthem has just been detailed by BioWare and EA. This is the update that will be required for players to download prior to hopping into Anthem on February 22. As far as I can see, this update has not yet been released to those playing on either EA Access or Origin Access.

    The update contains a decent list of fixes and quality of life improvements. Notably, it addresses the overly long loading times that many players have been very vocally complaining about. It also helps to address infinite loading screen issues, crash bugs, and more.

    The full list of changes can be found below. ...

    Anthem Post-Launch Roadmap Partially Revealed


    BioWare seems like they're committed to delivering a fairly steady stream of fresh content and updates for Anthem after it's released. Today, the Anthem team revealed a partial roadmap of what players can expect in the months ahead for the game.

    Granted, we only get a real detailed look at the content that starts to come out in March, but it's better than nothing. March kicks off Act 01: Echoes of Reality. Acts 02 and 03 are teased, but their starting dates or what they will bring to the table were not revealed just yet.
