BioWare is incentivizing VIP demo players to return for the free demo.
The VIP access demo will be coming to a close soon for BioWare’s Anthem. However, the developer shared a rather interesting bit of info on Twitter. VIP demo players will currently have the chance to try out all four Javelins. If you didn’t make it in time before the VIP access demo ended, then they’ll be available next weekend for the free demo.
This is noteworthy, because during the VIP access demo, players could only try out the Ranger, and another Javelin of their choosing. So if you happened to be stuck with the Colossus, which isn’t as tanky initially, then you couldn’t really change. It also lets players who enjoyed Interceptor and Storm see what life is like on the other side.
This offer only applies to those who played the VIP access demo. What’s currently unconfirmed though is if pre-ordering or subscribing to EA/Origin Access right now will provide the same benefit to non-VIP players. The free demo is going live on February 1st for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, with the full game out on February 22nd. BioWare recently issued a statement on the VIP demo’s issues, which you can read about here.
As a further thank you, all four javelins are available now in the Forge for players who have played in this weekend’s demo. Won’t get a chance to jump in? They will be waiting for VIP participants next weekend!
Log out and back in to see them if you’re in game. pic.twitter.com/TOg24SAW7M
