New missions, expanded progression Guild support, and more also coming next month.
BioWare has been talking about the end-game for its upcoming looter shooter Anthem for some time now. A recent video discussed the crafting, different difficulties, and Legendary Contracts that would be available after the story was complete. Now it seems we have a bit more insight on the developer’s post-launch roadmap for Anthem, which currently consists of three Acts.
In March, we’ll get Act 1: Echoes of Reality for the “ongoing narrative” of Anthem. As per info shared by lead producer Ben Irving on Twitter, Act 1 will be split into three updates – the Evolving World, Stronger Together, and the Cataclysm. Cataclysms have already been described as “time-limited world events” which involve weather changes, stronger enemies, and new things to do. They may be akin to the public demo’s world event that saw a giant fire storm in the sky that spewed forth Ash Titans.
Echoes of Reality will also bring new rewards, a new Stronghold, new missions, an expanded progression system, and Guilds and leaderboards. An official release date hasn’t been announced for these features, and we don’t know exactly how much content to expect from the entire Act. Anthem is out on February 22nd for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, so there will (hopefully) be plenty to keep us busy until March.
VERY excited to start sharing more information about the Anthem Live Service! This is just the beginning… pic.twitter.com/eGmj5V6Mpc
