Which as per the VIP demo from last week, check out our impressions here, will kick off in the ANZ region bright and early tomorrow morning. With server and connection issues still on the minds of players, Head of Live Service at BioWare Chad Robertson notes, "we will be prepared with more server capacity than we anticipate will be needed".

Adding that, as with anything online, predicting behaviour is difficult.

As a public demo everyone will be able to gain access and check out Anthem for themselves across PC, Xbox One, and PS4 tomorrow. Progress from last week's VIP Demo will carry over for those who played last weekend - which is nice - with the demo this week also bringing some minor updates.

With the full release only a few weeks out, BioWare has already implemented a huge number of improvements; including something called Social Hub: The Launch Bay, a place to chill with other players. Something that we felt was missing in our play session last weekend. In fact, as per below, the full release version of Anthem looks to address a number of things:
  • Further performance Improvements
  • Additional stability fixes
  • Fixes to inscriptions showing up incorrectly
  • Fixes to inscriptions from other Javelins being chosen
  • Fixes to disappearing customization settings
  • Fixes to XP gain behavior
  • Audio improvements
  • Improvements to PC controls, including flight and aiming
  • A Social Hub: The Launch Bay
  • And a few thousand more (literally)…

  • Reports indicate that the VIP demo from last week utilised (and we assume this weekend too) represents a six-week old build dating back to December.

    With our biggest concern being performance, this gives us renewed hope that Anthem will launch with a rock-solid frame-rate on consoles and better PC optimisation overall. We'll be hopping back into our Javelins this weekend to check it out again, so if you plan on playing some Anthem be sure to hit us up. In the lead-up to the servers going live, players can pre-load the demo right now.

    NOTE: This article was updated to properly reflect that the updates and fixes are for the full version and not this weekend's demo.
