PS4 and Xbox One copies of Anthem are being marketed early in parts of the world like the Middle East, what with enterprising retailers taking to Instagram to post its immediate availability. Though the game’s servers are already live for PC and Xbox One, thanks to their early access release through Origin Premier, Origin Access, or EA accessibility on February 15, this would allow PS4 proprietors in addition to Xbox One users never subscribed to EA Access to install it and prepare themselves to the enormous Anthem day one patch.
For what its worth, Anthem is not worth picking up in its existing condition if our period with the game is any sign. There are a host of design and technical issues that make playing through BioWare’s latest much out of a enjoyable adventure. With Destiny two seeing a ton of improvements and The Section two seeming to be promising, there is very little reason to spend time into Anthem until its upgrades fix its plethora of issues, making us wonder why the game has been released in the country it’s in to start with. More so once you consider EA CEO Andrew Wilson’s remarks regarding Anthem’s shift in release date in 2018.
“Regardless of how it’s being depicted, we’re not seem at that as a delay, we’ve selected to launch Anthem at [the fourth quarter]. The date is preferred by portfolio balance, not product openness,” EA CEO Andrew Wilson stated at a call to investors at the moment. “And we are really excited by the way the new Battlefield is forming up. It probably does not make too much sense to launch Anthem right by it. As a new IP, it likely makes sense to give [Anthem] its launch window”
Anthem India release date
Contemplating EA’s India distributor is Amazon, it is unlikely that we will see the game release early. If anything, expect Amazon to deliver Anthem on release date at best.
