Anthem's Day-1 Patch is Now Live

Anthem's Day-1 Patch is Now Live

When Anthem's Origin Access Premium Access started last weekend, we couldn't help but think that the game wasn't finished yet. For starters, we knew that the game didn't allow PC gamers to turn HDR off in fullscreen mode, forcing players on PC to make do with a sub-par HDR experience if they are using a low-end HDR supporting monitor. That alongside other factors forced us to delay our testing. 

Now, EA has released Anthem's Day-1 patch, which means that the game is officially ready for launch, adding PC's much needed HDR options while addressing a long list of bugs and issues that plagued the game's premium Early Access version. These fixes include a decrease in HDD loading times, better quest tracking, a fix for some infinite loading screen bugs and more. 

Full release notes for Anthem's Day-1 patch are available to read on EA's website, covering too much ground to list in this short news post. Now Anthem is in its release-ready state, which means that hardware testing can finally begin.

I hear the are correcting the story also? or did I misread, but it had such a confusing plot that end campaign made no sense.Quote

Day 8 patch, dear Bioware...

No not really Warchild. I liked SkillUp his review as it voices my opinion to the letter. I won't be picking this one up.Quote

I don't know why but I can't shake the feeling that a lot of reviewers, including YouTubers are just being overly and unnecessarily negative about the game.

Is the game perfect? No - far from it but it's really not as bad as everyone is making out IMO.Quote

Two reasons:

One: It's an online shooter. No matter how much it cost (Except if it was free), people will complain that there isn't enough content and it's not worth their money. So if they made the campaign last 200 hours, people would complain it's not at least 201 hours long. Just typical gamer entitlement.


Two: It's a Bioware game. Bioware games ALWAYS carry huge drama associated with them, no matter what. People expect their games to be near perfect, have no bugs, no 0 day issues (and they'd rather have them for free).

My advice: Ignore the plebs and reviewers, but watch it live streamed for a few hours. Like what you're seeing? Consider buying it then, else move along (and stop whining hehe)Quote

The game was fun however it doesn't really have a lot of content at launch. Only 3 fortresses one of which we already beat in the Beta and it lasted what 20-30 minutes? That's not a lot of end game content. So for me it's a no buy. Doesn't mean I view the game negatively just the amount of content isn't up to par. I mean it had as much content as Black Ops 4 and even then that's not much(as it was all basically recycled content).

If they can do regular content updates then I'll be all over this game. But it seems like it'll be 2 months before more big content drops.Quote
