You may have been busy playing Anthem all weekend if you’re an EA/Origin Access subscriber, but the game does not officially launch in shops until this Friday. And it’s then Anthem will receive its big (and some would say much-needed) day one patch.
We’ve been playing the game a lot – Martin published his early, unpatched Anthem impressions on Monday – and during our time with the game we’ve come up against a lot of the issues listed as fixed in the patch notes below.
Specifically, the patch will improve loading times, and fix issues causing disconnects and crashes. It will also relax the restrictive “gather party” mechanic which can force you into further loading screens if someone zooms too far ahead.
