What you need to know
- Anthem is a third-person action game from BioWare.
- It garnered poor reviews at launch due to its story and technical issues.
- BioWare has finally promised a complete overhaul of the game.
- Anthem is part of EA Access.
Many months ago, rumors were floating around that BioWare was planning a massive overhaul of Anthem. It's no secret that the game's launch didn't go smoothly. Not only was there a convoluted and incomplete story, but the performance on consoles was terrible. Since then, the team has fixed the technical issues, but the overall problems with gameplay remain.
Casey Hudson, BioWare's General Manager, said the following in a blog post. The post appears to have been taken down since so it may have been revealed a little early. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
It's great to see that BioWare hasn't given up on the game like they did with Mass Effect: Andromeda. Hopefully, Anthem will be completely revamped and a joy to place once all the changes are implemented.
