Anthem Xbox One preorders now live at Microsoft Store

Electronic Arts recently wrapped up its EA Play press conference, where the publisher debuted the biggest batch of Anthem details since its reveal last year. Diving deeper into role-playing gameplay, class-based combat, and progression, we now have a clear idea of the experience in the works.

Following its unveiling, Microsoft has now opened digital preorders for Xbox One copies via Microsoft Store. Both the game's standard edition and "Legion of Dawn" edition can be secured – with bonuses in-store alongside advanced purchases.

Like many triple-A titles, Anthem's standard edition is priced at $59.99, which provides access to the base experience. Preorders will also receive "The Ranger Legion of Dawn Armor Pack," a legendary weapon, a founders player banner and access to "public pre-launch play demos."

The premium-tier Legion of Dawn edition is priced at $79.99, which locks down additional in-game content for launch. Buyers will receive the complete set of Legion of Dawn Armor Packs for all four classes, alongside a legendary weapon, Javelin gear attachment and a copy of the soundtrack. Preorders will once again be paired with the Founders player banner and access to pre-launch demos.

Anthem is currently scheduled to release on February 22, 2019, across all platforms. Which version are you planning to pick up? Drop into the comments section below with your thoughts.
