BioWare's Anthem Game Plan

With the end of Anthem Cataclysm nearing, BioWare offers a new update with their plans for their multiplayer action/RPG. Chad, the game's Head of Live Service, admits the game needs more work, an reiterates BioWare's commitment to make it a "great game." He explains their next steps:
Those of you in our player community that played on our Public Test Server gave us valuable feedback from your play that we used to influence our changes to the game. PTS is an invaluable tool we will leverage for future updates with Anthem. Some of the changes made to the Cataclysm based on your input were:

  • Combat balancing improvements
  • Adjustments for minor-to-major crystal economy
  • Additional types of reward crates, providing more player choice
  • UX tips in load screens to better explain Cataclysm mechanics
  • Final Score Banners to show how much score was gained from playing on higher difficulties

So what’s next for Anthem?
We hear your concerns on core issues in Anthem and are acting on it. Those systems require a more thorough review and re-working versus quick fixes. We’ve got a team working on that now, and early results are promising.

In order to address these long-range plans, we are moving away from the Acts structure for updates. Instead, we have additional seasonal updates planned for this year that we think players will enjoy. These events will deliver challenges and chases similar to what you’ve seen, and are built around some fun themes we’re bringing to the game.

Valve Bioware states that Half Life Anthem is moving away from Full game releases Acts to more frequent Episodic Content Seasonal content.



Honestly, though, I enjoy this game quite a bit. I held off quite a while, deterred by the haters and the bad reviews, but I got it on sale and found that the game play is rather fun. The combat is responsive and the suits feel like they have substance. Its a fun game!

I think people should stop hating and move on.

although... EA still sucks.

Glad to see I am not the only one who found the game fun. IMO most of the complaints are rooted in EA bad

Huh, so that's what digital necrophilia in gaming looks like.

= we will continue to add meaningless cosmetic store items for you to buy , while doing nothing about adding things to actually do in the game - just like Destiny 2

Again, paying full price to buy a game based on "road map" is just STUPID. This is worse than early access.

So you're just going to rehash the boring crap that was Cataclysm? Sounds super fun.

I would maybe start by just getting better management. Hire a few people who actually know what KIND of game they want to make by the time they get, you know, five years into the project.

We've heard you, and we have to fix stuff. But we're moving away from a schedule to a different type of one. It will take a while, but we think it will bring much fun. In the meantime we have fun as much as can be had on the way, we think. We think it'll be fun. It might be fun. PLEASE GOD BUY OUR GAME
