It’s been a long old wait for Anthem players hoping to catch a glimpse of significant new content in BioWare’s much-maligned shooter. Now, however, a sudden flurry of in-game activity suggests that its much-hyped Cataclysm event may finally be about to unfold.
Cataclysm, you might recall, was trumpeted as one of Anthem’s defining post-launch features prior to release, with BioWare promising a “massive, world-changing” event full of stormy weather and the game’s “most ambitious and challenging content”. Exactly five months after the release of Anthem, however, Cataclysm is still yet to arrive in the live game.
That’s not to say we don’t know what to expect from the eight-week long event, of course; BioWare held a fairly extensive unveiling back in May, and curious sorts have intermittently been able to experience some of its innards since June, via the game’s Public Test Server.
