BioWare's Anthem is not only a big title for EA and the studio but in many ways a release that people are curious to see if it can live up to the hype. Which is a direct result of the studio's last game Mass Effect: Andromeda receiving a lukewarm response from fans and critics. A Closed Alpha test is planned for the weekend of December 8-9 across PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

In other Anthem news, BioWare head Casey Hudson posted the latest monthly update
on the game noting, "We’re at the part of the project where we’re doing final tasks and changes, and doing a ton of testing and bug-fixing. And we’re able to do one of my favorite parts of game development: the Play From Home build". It's cool to learn that this process has been a part of BioWare development for many years, even with the ambitious shared-world of Anthem.
"It’s scary and exciting to work on something on this scale and complexity," Casey adds. "But we’re doing everything we can to make sure it’s an amazing experience for you."
Anthem will be out February 22 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
