The Freeplay events, Weekly Strongholds, Challenges, and Seasons Store from the Icetide Season has been extended to run through February in Anthem.
Bug Fixes & Improvements
The Anthem developers squashed quite a few pesky bugs and improved here and there. For example, they resolved a problem with the Daily: Contracts challenge where the amount of minor crystal rewarded was incorrect. This challenge will now correctly grant 500 crystals.
- Reduced the wait time to start Time Trial races from 60 seconds to 20 seconds.
- Tyrant Mine should now be available in the seasonal Icetide challenge rotation.
- This was supposed to be in with Icetide, however there was an issue that emerged in testing. We didn’t feel comfortable releasing Tyrant Mine until we could fully resolve this issue.
- Fixed an issue in Anthem where seasonal wreaths were playing their collection sound effect when they spawned into the world incorrectly.
- Weekly Stronghold challenge completion credit is now correctly tracking based on completed strongholds and not how many players are in the session at the time of completion.
- The “Soldier’s Reward” inversion is now correctly using its own icon as intended.
- Fixed an issue in Anthem that was preventing the electric orbs from correctly spawning in the arachnid defense annex in the Tyrant Mine.
