Anthem Demo schedule: All times and dates
Prepared for the Anthem Demos? These are the dates and times you need to know.
Electronic Arts is preparing to launch pre-release demos for Anthem, its upcoming shared-world role-playing game, headed to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. While the all-new franchise isn't set to launch until February 22, 2019, two planned preview sessions are your chance for early access.
The Anthem demo splits into two separate periods, from a limited-access "VIP Demo" to a wider "Open Demo." The former is limited to those who preorder Anthem, subscribe to EA Access on Xbox One, or use Origin Access on PC. Alternatively, the Open Demo is accessible for all.
