What to expect in Anthem's March update

Anthem is an upcoming shared world third-person shooter from BioWare. BioWare is the studio behind famous franchises like Dragon Age and Mass Effect. Anthem is expected to launch on February 22, 2019, but that hasn't stopped the developer from releasing new details about the project.

Aside from featuring a plethora of content at launch, Anthem should get new cosmetic items, creatures, and even regions after launch. However, it seems that Anthem's story will evolve as well, much more so than a game like Destiny 2. Today, BioWare detailed the roadmap for future updates, and said that at launch "the ongoing narrative of Anthem begins."

In March 2019, Anthem will get a narrative event called "Echoes of Reality." Echoes of Reality is broken down into three chapters called "Evolving World," "Stronger Together," and "The Cataclysm." While we don't know what Evolving World and Stronger Together have in store for players, The Cataclysm will be a map-altering event which will only take place for a limited time. It may reveal new areas and block off existing ones. Only time will tell. You can read more about the endgame content here.

What are you most looking forward to from Anthem's endgame? Let us know. Recently, the Digital Foundry managed to test out all the versions and concluded that only the Xbox One X offered native 4K resolution. The PlayStation 4 Pro achieves 1800p. In an earlier analysis, Digital Foundry discovered that there were "checkerboarding" artifacts on all versions — even PC — but that's not the case anymore.
