Countdown to Anthem

A post on the BioWare Blog from BioWare's Casey Hudson talks about Anthem, as just one month remains before the launch of the mech shooter. He discusses the history of the game's development, which began over six years ago with a project codenamed DYLAN. He then brings us to the present day and even the future, as he discusses the game's launch and the various ways players will be able to play:
Anthem will launch with a ton of content, including a substantial main story that introduces you to the world and its characters. But there’s still a missing ingredient that we haven’t been able to test Anthem with: you. So, over the next month as you start to have opportunities to try what we’ve created, I ask you to keep one thing in mind: The launch of Anthem is not the end – it’s the beginning of an ongoing story in which you are a critical element. If there’s something you want more of, we can build it. If something isn’t right, let us know. And the story itself will unfold over time based on how you play the game. Soon, we will reveal more about our plans for how we intend to support that ongoing stream of content and features.

But when can you play? We are just days away from the first of several opportunities you’ll have to jump into Anthem and try it for yourself:

  1. If you have pre-ordered or are an active EA Access subscriber, you’ll be able to participate in the VIP demo starting January 25.
  2. Then, on February 1, the open demo goes live and everyone will be able to spend the weekend playing Anthem.
  3. If you subscribe to Origin Access Premier you’ll be able to start playing the full game through Early Access on February 15. Or you can play the first 10 hours on the same day through the Play First Trial.
  4. And finally, our worldwide launch date is February 22!

I’ll be spending a lot of time in the world of Anthem myself. I hope to see you there!

I hope it doesn't tank, because I don't want Bioware to die without seeing if their one good studio (this one) can recapture the Mass Effect magic.

On the flipside, I'm thoroughly worried that it WILL tank and they WILL die.

I can always count on Creston's unwavering support.

Hey, remember back in the day when you said we would start charging for ME3 multiplayer map packs? Man, those were the days...
