Mass Effect Andromeda launched to lukewarm reviews last year, but BioWare is hoping to bounce back strong with a new IP. BioWare has been hard at work on Anthem since 2012, and it finally launches next February. If you’re a little hesitant about buying into the hype after Andromeda, we’ve got some good news. You may have a chance to try it out before you buy.
Speaking at PAX West, Executive Producer Mark Darrah and Producer Mike Gamble announced that Anthem is getting a demo on February 1st, 2019. This isn’t meant as a beta or tech demo, but as a legitimate look at a small chunk of the game as it will appear on launch day.
This demo isn’t exactly closed to the public, but it isn’t really open either. Full details haven’t been announced, but BioWare will be limiting the number of participants. Anyone with an EA Access subscription is guaranteed access, and so are those who pre-order the game. There are plans to let people in through other means as well, but BioWare is waiting to give specifics until a later date.
