Great news for those that cannot wait for Anthem! The highly anticipated game now has a start date for VIP and public players when they can try out the demo. There are two separate dates and fans can get to play the demo for three days as they wish, according to the announcement on the official EA website:
The VIP Demo takes place from January 25 – 27, a few weeks before Anthem launches on February 22, 2019. Pre-order, join Origin Access, or join EA Access to experience the VIP Demo. As part of the VIP Demo, you’ll also get an exclusive in-game item to show you were the first to play.
But what is the difference between the VIP demo and the public one?
The thing is that VIP players will receive an exclusive item which will show everyone that they were the first players that got into Anthem. The demos will be available on all three platforms – PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Game Progression in the Demo Not Continued to the Full Game
Bioware also added that all players in the demo will start at level 10, but none of the saved data will be continued to the fully released game. Considering that Anthem was revealed on Microsoft’s stage at E3 2017, we should expect that Xbox One X will get some sort of privileges. Will that translate to native 4k or checkerboard resolution? Only time will tell.
After Mass Effect Andromeda didn’t get positive critics, Bioware is hoping that Anthem will be well received and have financial success.
If you want to try the demo, download it before the start date so that you get plenty of time to play. Go to the Bioware website and learn more about Anthem and how to preorder and download the demo.
Expect to see Anthem released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on February 22, 2019.
