    It wasn't already? I thought that was how most played it.

    Fitting, its worth playing just for the view. Nothing more. Really would be a good game with some game design in it though

    It was part of Premier Access before, the more expensive one.

    So new games at EA all start outside their subscription plan and then are eventually phased in? This makes sense unless they are multiplayer which more and more games are now. Not sure this is a wise system going forward.

    The only thing Anthem had going for it was being pretty, thats it, its linear, formulaic and is nothing but a cash shop. Everything about the game has been a disaster.

    I'm expecting to see EA/Bioware drop support for Anthem within the next few months or at least before next year. The game requires massive overhauls of big chunks of the game which they dont have the team for or money coming in to justify.

    There will probably still be a few people playing the game, but i seriously doubt there are all that many, its probably only a matter of time before the game has its ME:Andromeda 'moment' where they give up fixing the game and just maintain what remains, probably maintaining the game in its current state is the best that can be hoped for. :/

    EA Basic is very cheap at $30 / year and Premier is $100. Premier gives you access to some but not all games at launch - Anthem was one of them - and Basic has mostly older games available... more than 100 games. Basic also gives you 10 hour trials of full new games as it did with Anthem. That's what I did with it and based on that decided not to buy it.

    "Older" is relative though and you can gauge how well or badly a game did on retail by how quickly it gets to Basic. ME: Andromeda and now Anthem got there in record time :)

    Rest in peace Anthem. You tried and I enjoyed the game for roughly 25-30 hours.

    I think it's more along the lines of Anthem needs a crutch to stay alive. If Anthem were a success, it would not be on a low tier all access plan.

    I think it means it's going to the standard sub . If was available with origin access Premier (the premium sub) before.

    Didn't they already mess up C&C 4 (Tiberium Twilight)? The game went the way of trying to copy Supreme Commander 2 or something. SC1 was greatish....SC2 was under received (though was still fun). That dev team going to making Planetary Annihilation and bombing hard on that one was....it wasn't that great.

    ------[Then again, they only went back to making an SC-like because their LoL-like -Demigod- failed so very hard due to a piss poor network system and little to no post-launch development support. Don't get me wrong, the game's mechanics were absolutely fun and I miss it so very much. But the networking was utter garbage.]

    Oh...so ya, it's EA. Plus have you seen their library lately? The only good thing to come out of them is APEX Legends; which was by one of their subsidiaries as a 'grown up Fortnite' knockoff.

    When a struggling game goes to EA, it usually means end of the journey.

    LOOKS like an interesting game, but even Deathwing FEELS and PLAYS better.

    Really, coming to Anthem videos after playing DW with stuff like Redeemer. Priceless. /epicfail on EA's part.

    Just go f2p already before dying off completely. Maybe it'll have a better turn around.
  • JeroKaneJeroKane Member RarePosts: 6,267
    You can literally buy the game for 5 - 10 bucks now. Retail stores are just dumping their stock now for this game and practically giving it away nearly free, just to get rid of it.

    I think Bioware will be joining Westwood and the others out back very soon.

    All they really need to do is make the game more solo friendly, which gives players the option to solo or group content, by improving the gear and weapons, the game would pickup a lot of players, imo.

    You mean like abandoning their "Game$ a$ a $ervice" multiplayer horseshit that all of us allegedly wanted and make it a single player game like all the games Bioware is best known for? What kind of heresy is this?

    Why wouldn't a subscription to a multiplayer game be wise?
