Anthem Cataclysm Returns

A tweet from Jesse Anderson confirms that a new hotfix for Anthem sees the resumption of the Cataclysm event in the multiplayer action/RPG. GamesRadar+ notes this seems to have come "after players complain of nothing else to do." Here's word on the update:

We just pushed a hotfix in #AnthemGame that turned on the following:

  • The seasonal store is back
  • Echoes of Reality will now display at the Start of Expedition screen
  • Inversions are active with ‘Air Support’ and ‘From the Skies’
  • All arenas are active in the Cataclysm

Sometimes people only work in certain areas. When i was a maintenance tech at a fab i did not work in the cafeteria when they were short handed, nor did the grill chef come into the fab and cycle purge the SiH4 gas line before we changed out a mass flow controller. odd how that works
So they never fired people or hired new ones? How odd indeed.

The store if it is mostly the same as it was months ago, the content for the most part was embarrassing to. Yeah them turning it back on we can see this wasn't really the hope or plan, but they sort of half to, without it they are actually taking content and gear away for people to play or obtain. LOL

"Anthem's fans, however, seem to be most interested in is The Cataclysm, which is a limited time event coming in the third update."

It was supposed to usher in Act 2, but now there's no Act 2.

And it isn't just the haters. I watched a fan video during the event speculating on the lull between the Cataclysm and whatever the next event might be.

Them flipping the switch to bring it back should be a very bad sign to anyone playing it. No new content for a while, if at all, me thinks.

It is an absolute pain in the ass to do, the puzzles make no sense and trying to get anyone to join the event is very difficult. Most of the time I ended up in a group with one other person, sometimes I was alone. If you don't have a full party forget it.

You wont be getting through the event. And a lot of times, when you did a get a party going, some players would just bail out leaving you sitting there. Its a bullshit event that no one seems very interested in doing.

^ I don't know, their words and this being a HOTFIX, seems to think it wasn't cleanly planned out as you allude to, they decided as it happened:

Greetings, Freelancers.

Many of you may have noticed that the Cataclysm content is… well… not totally gone. Technically, the Cataclysm event has officially ended, as planned. However, the team decided to leave some of the elements for you to play until the next content release. With that in mind, here’s what we’ve decided to leave open until the next seasonal update:

The Echoes of Reality portion of the Cataclysm will remain open for you to enjoy
You will still retain and earn Crystals in the EoR runs

With that said, we know we have some various UI bugs we did not anticipate. The team is working to resolve these. Here are the details you should know:

We’ll bring back the Seasonal Store later this week, so you can spend the remaining Crystals you have, while you continue to earn them in the content still in the live game.
Second (and this one is important), your Crystals will not carry over to the next Seasonal Event.
Finally, Daily Cataclysm Challenges, Story Missions, and Freeplay Events will not remain. Leaderboards will be visible for now, but will not be updated and remain blank until the next event.

We’re not ready to give a date on the next content update yet, but stay tuned and enjoy the Echoes of Reality map until then.

key words "the Cataclysm event has officially ended"

Maybe I missed something, where this was a ONE time event, and not a recurring event.

I guess, but it was never going anywhere in the first place. A less clickbate title would be Anthem Cataclysm reset after eight weeks as designed.

I honestly was not surprised to see all the haters screaming and kicking after learning that it was an eight week event, and misrepresenting it as a one time only event. Bullshit outrage build upon baseless speculation is the new normal in a world were clicks matter more then truth or facts.
