Anthem Demo Plans

A new post on the BioWare Blog offers an "Anthem VIP Demo Weekend Summary." Most people could probably summarize the weekend demo in a word or two, but this goes a little beyond that. Most people would probably not heap praise on BioWare for how all this worked out, but Chad Robertson isn't most people, so this is part of what BioWare's Head of Live Service leads with: "I’m particularly proud to be part of our amazing team across Austin and Edmonton. Their dedication and passion showed this weekend. Our war rooms in both locations were hot-beds of activity 24×7 all 3 days. We had fantastic support from EA and our partners." He then looks ahead to next weekend's public demo, and what will and will not be fixed by then:
We’ve got a long list of things that were addressed during the weekend, or are being addressed for next weekend’s public demo. These include:

  • 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

We’re doing more scale testing this week, particularly to be ready for the opening rush of players on Friday, and to verify we’ve got “infinite load” problems improved, the latter of which was a primary frustration for many players.

We’ve also been preparing for many weeks for our full launch. That version of the game already has a long list of things that are already fixed that won’t make the public demo weekend. That list includes:

  • 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)…
