BioWare’s awful response to Kotaku’s exposé pours petrol on a raging PR fire

BioWare respond to reports of Anthem development hell

After playing nearly twenty hours, it's hard to shake the sense that Anthem's development was messier than BioWare might have liked.

Anthem buffs some loot drop rates, plans to improve more

BioWare have now officially and intentionally improved loot drop rates in certain Anthem activities, following weeks of griping from players that the looter-shooter is too stingy with the goodies.
