BioWare Celebrates Anthem's First Anniversary

BioWare quietly celebrates the first anniversary of Anthem's launch by releasing a new patch and giving the players a few small cosmetic gifts. The studio has also announced an improved schedule of events, which, however, will lack virtually any new attractions.

This week it's been a year since Anthem was released. A game that was supposed to open a new era in the history of BioWare, according to many people, has completely buried its reputation. Despite the game being practically abandoned when it comes to development work, the developers have prepared an anniversary surprise for the few veterans who still play with game. However, this is not the removal of the long overdue holiday decorations (this already happened a few days ago), but a few small gifts. From February 25 to March 24, everyone will be able to pick up four birthday skins, one for each type of Javelin, as well as a new special material for crafting.

BioWare has also prepared a new patch 1.7.0. Unfortunately, it does not introduce any new attractions. The patch modifies the existing schedule of available events so that the title can function practically on auto-pilot for a long time (however, the devs are open to suggestions for changes from fans). The familiar daily, weekly and monthly challenges and events will be subject to regular rotation, also including optional game modes. The range of weapons and items in the shops will also change. Standard prizes await for participation in the events. An additional variety is to be provided by time-limited events, organized on the occasion of selected calendar holidays.

Recently, BioWare developers confirmed that they plan to redesign Anthem in the future, focusing on basic aspects of gameplay and motivating the players to have more fun. Rumors of the so-called Anthem 2.0 or Anthem Next have been circulating for a long time. According to them, the title will be rebooted and will most likely switch to free-to-play. For now, we don't know when or even if it will happen.
