Anthem is an upcoming online multiplayer action role-playing video game being developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts set for a worldwide release on the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms on February 4, 2019. Players assume the role of a Freelancer, a group of people who leave their civilization to explore the surrounding landscape, and the game combines a third-person shooter with the action role-playing game elements in a “contiguous open world”. The VIP demo begins today for those who have pre-ordered, have EA Access or an Origin subscription. Read more for new gameplay footage and additional information.
“This is the first early access demo that EA is offering for Anthem. It’s only available to players who have the game pre-ordered, or subscribe to EA Access (Xbox One) or Origin Access (PC). Origin Access has two tiers. The first is Basic ($4.99 per month), which is the same price as EA Access and offers the same early access benefits. The second is Premier ($14.99), which offers more benefits and has no console equivalent. It’s still unclear what exactly will be included in this demo, but it will probably just be a small portion of the overall game,” reports Polygon.
