After weeks of saying almost nothing about multiplayer space shooter Anthem BioWare has announced a new update, a public test server for PC players and that new details of its end-game Cataclysm event, which was originally promised to launch in May, will arrive tomorrow under a live stream for developers.
Anthem s 1.2 update does not dramatically change the game or add much to new content outside of extra legendary missions, but it allows players to quickly travel under freeplay to any of the battle sites on the card, something that will make traveling in that state much less grueling.
What players have really been keen to learn about is the game's Cataclysm, teased back before the release as one of the game's most challenging and involved end-game activities, closer to a Destiny Destiny 9020] -style raid than Anthem's existing stronghold missions. BioWare community manager Jesse Anderson announced at EA Forum that players will finally get their first glimpse of it during a developer livestream at 4:00 pm tomorrow.
There is still no news about when the event will live in the game. It was originally to be released before the end of May, but was indefinitely delayed at the end of April, with Anthem & # 39; s developers referring to the need to work more with setting the underlying game . Instead of giving a release date, Anderson said in the forum that BioWare will induce the players' help to test it first.
"Instead of rushing it out of the door, we will take time and get feedback from you and make changes from what we hear," wrote Anderson. "To do so, we release a public test server (PTS) on a PC that allows you to view the content as it is being developed and allows you to provide feedback."
Although not much, it is better than the radio mode that the remaining players have had in the last three weeks after the game's previous May 7 update. During that time, the game's subreddit has lost many of its active users, while those stuck have been desperate for any news about the game's continued development. At least they know they won't have to wait for E3.
