Following the much-delayed release of Anthem’s Cataclysm update last month, BioWare says it will be ditching its originally announced post-launch content plans, and will now be delivering “seasonal updates” in place of its planned regular “Acts” in order to focus on “core issues”.
When BioWare initially revealed its post-launch content plans for Anthem back in February, just ahead of what transpired to be the game’s less-than-stellar release, it teased three different upcoming Acts. Each would consist of several updates, expanding the world and the activities available to players, and would culminate in a limited-time Cataclysm event, designed to shake up the core experience.
Act One was originally due to go live in March, but many of its features were delayed as BioWare struggled to remedy the numerous technical issues plaguing Anthem following release. It took six months to get the game’s first Cataclysm event out the door, and ne’er a word was spoken about the other two planned Acts in the interim – and now we know why.
