Anthem is almost here! EA’s attempt at a Destiny clone launches February 22. Will they screw it up by ham-handedly monetizing every aspect? Almost assuredly. In the meantime, EA has announced a demo period so everyone can try out Anthem before the launch.
There will be two demo periods. Each will last just one weekend. The VIP demo period starts at 9 am PST on Friday, January 25, and ends Monday, January 28, at 6 pm PST. The open demo starts at 9 am on Friday, February 1, and ends at 6 pm on Monday, February 4.
Access to the VIP demo is limited to players who preordered Anthem, EA Access subscribers, and those who receive invites from their friends. Each player who downloads the demo will receive three invites to distribute freely.
The open demo can be accessed by everyone, no purchase, subscription, or invitation necessary.
The demo is available for download now. VG247 has a great article with lots of details.
Anthem is due to be released on February 22, 2019, on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It is being developed by BioWare Edmonton and being published by Electronic Arts.
