BioWare has now shared the fixes it has already done to the launch version of Anthem including performance improvements and stability fixes. Unluckily, these fixes won’t make it to the open demo which starts on February 1 so expect some big improvements in the final version of the game.
Electronic Arts and BioWare both know that there’s a lot of work still required to be done to the game in order to satisfy players and simply apologizing is not enough. That’s why the devs have now released a list of changes to “ensure everyone can enjoy the game exactly as they’ve designed it”. It’s a well-timed move as many were utterly disappointed after failing to play the recent demo.
Chad Robertson the head of live service has now shared a list of fixes that have been already solved. You can check out the list of changes between the current version of the game and the final launch below.
- Weapons with 0% infusions
- Weapons with bonus that applies to different Javelins
- Plot integrity / party gather issues
- Changes to Javelin unlock behavior
- Fixes for losing XP at end of some expeditions
- Performance Improvements
- Additional stability fixes
- A Social Hub: The Launch Bay
- And a few thousand more (literally)…
Chad continued by saying that they registered over 9M hours of play during the days of VIP demo. During all that play-time, players managed to complete over 1 million strongholds and about 2 Million harmless grabbits were slaughtered.
That’s not all as the team has also outlined fixes and changes that may or may not be done in time for next weekend’s Anthem open video game demo.
- Entitlement bugs
- Server performance updates to address much of the rubber-banding
- Fixes for infinite loads and more being investigated
- Platform bugs to validate Javelin unlocks
- Client and platform login bugs
Expect more updates like these in the future and it’s good to see the developers constantly being in contact with the community.
Anthem open demo starts soon and when it arrives, we hope that its servers are able to handle the flood of players it will bring along. If it fails exactly like the VIP demo then the creators of Mass Effect series will be in deep waters once again followed by the failure of Mass Effect Andromeda.
Anthem will officially launch on February 22 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
