Anthem Launches on Origin Access

Though the full launch of Anthem is not until next week, an early chance to play BioWare's new action/RPG is now available through Origin Access in two forms. Those who are Origin Access Premier members have unlimited access to the full game as part of their subscriptions, which cost $14.99 USD/month. There are also additional perks for these subscribers, and this article has details on how these can be access. Those with Basic subscriptions ($4.99 USD/month) also have a first crack at the game, but this is limited to a 10-hour trial. If you are having trouble locating the game in your library, this tweet has instructions on how to find it. This post has all the launch plans, and here's a quick description of the game:
Team with up to three other players in cooperative adventures that reward both combined effort and individual skill. Each player’s choice of javelin exosuit will shape their contribution and strategic role. As you explore, you will discover a gripping story filled with unique and memorable characters. Seamless and intelligent matchmaking will ensure you can quickly and easily find other players to adventure alongside.

Per Creston's comment at 33, it sounds like Anthem is a very polished albeit unfinished early access title.

With the recent cancellations of various single-player Star Wars games, EA has made it clear that they don't want to invest in long-term projects, and Anthem is a game that needs that. Instead, they want functional products that can become Games-as-a-Service (GAAS). If you think about it makes cents. Why would EA spend a lot of money to have BioWare fully develop the game at the level of BioWare past products?

The fact that Anthem launches with a single biome and the sameness of missions reeks of a game that had its core mechanics lockdown, much polish added, and then shipped to make more money so that BioWare can add more content (and prove the point that GAAS works). Meanwhile, EA touts the game's commercial success to shareholders, while simultaneously validating that they don't need to spend tens of millions to produce proper full games that a company like BioWare can achieve. In effect, Anthem is an experiment.
