Bioware has announced that they will launch test servers for Anthem soon. This will allow the players to test out new Anthem features and updates before public release. The development team will use the provided feedback to optimize Anthem’s future updates.
Anthem PC test server will help BioWare understand what the players want. The announcement for this test server was made by BioWare in a post on Reddit following the release of Anthem 1.1.0 update. The test server is likely to come on Sony’s PS4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One but there’s no confirmation yet. For now, the public test environment for Anthem is exclusive to PC.
There are so many factors that can cause us to pivot on our plans – whether it’s bugs stability issues, player feedback, or complications with a feature that require us to take more time to deliver it. Our goal is to tell you about new content and features once the work is closer to being done.
At the same time, we want to provide more ways to get your feedback and for you to tell us what you think is fun (or not fun). To facilitate this we plan to introduce a Player Feedback Environment (PFE), an opportunity to get your feedback before we go live with major features (in the short term for PC only).
Anthem’s latest update has now arrived which brings new stronghold called The Sunken Cell. You can try out the new Stronghold if you have completed the main campaign. The update also comes with several bug fixes and new features.
New features include the ability to let you customize the Javelin on the go. You can now also launch new expeditions without having to return to Fort Tarsis.
The April Anthem update is part of Anthem’s 90-day roadmap and was originally planned to be a game changer. However, BioWare decided to delay most of the content to focus on bug fixes and other issues of the game. Major Anthem features like Cataclysm is delayed indefinitely. You can check out the full list of delayed Anthem features below.
- Mastery System
- Legendary Missions – Phase II
- Weekly Stronghold Challenge
- Some Freeplay Events
BioWare has also provided a list of known issues post Anthem patch 1.1.0.
EA’s Anthem continues to struggle and we hope that the game will move into the right direction after the launch of PC Test server. This will also prevent BioWare and Electronic Arts from facing further embarrassment. Anthem’s roadmap is now completely changed.
