Canadian video game developer Bioware has announced the demo launch of their upcoming game Anthem at the Pax West 2018. During the panel, Anthem developers confirmed that the demo game will launch on February 1, 2019, for XBox One, PlayStation 4, and Microsoft Windows gaming PCs.
Anthem Lead Producer Mike Gamble has described the demo as a slice of the real game, and not just a tech test or beta.
The demo release will be launched three weeks ahead than the game’s full release. This means that the demo will feature the final product and will not be a beta test. Although no details were further revealed about the demo game, including the size of its content. But many speculate that it will showcase the game’s opening hours which may include character selection, game’s introduction, and tutorials. Such features are enough to give players a glimpse of the game’s massive open-world environment.
To access the said demo, fans will have to pre-order a copy of Anthem or be subscribed to EA Access. Otherwise, you won’t be able to check the game three weeks before its launch.
The developer also informed the fans that there will be many alphas and betas that might be released between the fourth quarter of 2018 and February 1. However, the developer didn’t mention anything about the release dates or how fans will be able to access them.
Aside from the announcement of the demo release, Bioware also released a new trailer of Anthem, featuring the game’s story and showing fans a look of its dynamic world.
