Anthem missions: Walkthrough for completing the game

BioWare's latest game is monumental in scope, meaning that completing the missions can be quite a slog. But like any Cypher worth their salt, we're here to give you all the intel you need to complete the missions in Anthem, from the story-based missions, down to the smaller objectives given by the three factions. Let's get cracking.

Anthem Preventative Precautions mission: Investigate the Scar presence at the Arcanist base

While Arcanists will take any help they can get, Sentinels are much more wary about obtaining help from the Freelancers. They see them as unreliable mercenaries only interested in glory. Brin - one of the more junior Sentinels, wants you to investigate a reported Scar presence at a nearby Arcanist base. This one is a nice and short mission considering the complexity of the story…

Anthem See In The Dark mission: Uncover the secrets of the hidden runes

Perhaps having a little too much curiosity for knowledge, Matthias wants you to investigate some recently discovered ancient runes. Naturally, there are some creepy creatures that would rather you left the runes alone, but you're in it for the reputation. Besides, Tassyn is likely still working out the next move so it's not like you have much of a choice.

Anthem What Freelancers Do mission: Rescuing the arcanists

Freelancer Yarrow will ask you to aid a fellow Freelancer named Rythe with escorting some Arcanists. Missions with Arcanists don't tend to go well since they're rather interfering busybodies, so lo and behold, they've angered some Scar. Your job is to protect the Arcanists as best as you can, while at the same time driving off the Scar attack.

Anthem fixes a whole lot of wonk in its Day 1 Patch

While Anthem technically doesn't launch until tomorrow, and has been out since last Friday for Origin Access subscribers, the "Day 1 Patch" hit BioWare's sci-fi looter-shooter overnight. It aims to address many of the technical troubles which have been evident in the test weekends and early access, which include long loading times, crashes, freezes, bugs impeding quest progress, and some--but not all--of the other problems…

Feature: Day one is a flexible term now

In Anthem’s first week, screw everything except the Storm javelin, TBQH

I was forming opinions about Anthem, EA's jetpacks-and-loot Destinylike, when they said that they’re dropping a big ‘day one’ update before the 22nd that supposedly changes and/or fixes a load of things. It’s downloading as I write this, making it technically a day one minus two patch, but it still bloody well say day one patch in the notes. I’m sure Origin Premier users feel…

Anthem Early Warnings mission: Prevent a cataclysm event

After that rather disastrous outcome, Anthem's second mission begins immediately and introduces us to Owen - your character's designated Cypher. He's adorable, but his mind is definitely set on being a Freelancer. We'll guide you through this second mission, giving you advanced warning of the stuff to come - including a cataclysm event you must stop.

Anthem Silence the Heart of Rage mission: Reuniting with your team

Anthem throws you into the deep end by having you take on the threat to the Heart of Rage - what is the catalyst for the Critical Objective missions in Anthem. This mission does serve as the game's tutorial, but we'll also provide intel on what you need to do to finish this mission relatively unscathed.

We put Anthem’s loading times to the test: HDD vs SSD vs NVMe

Anthem doesn't technically come out until February 22, but those who pre-ordered the game have been jumping around Bioware's futuristic Iron Man fantasy since Friday - or at least some of them have, as a lot of people haven't been able to get past the game's interminably long loading screens. Indeed, sometimes the game takes so long to load that you're too far behind the…

Feature: WELL?

What are we all playing this weekend?

Alice is on holiday, so this week it's me, Alice, filling in for Alice. We're deep in the trenches now, the game trenches, the February onslaught of releases. Metro is only just in our rear view mirror, and Brendan is almost a broken man. Anthem is in its bizarre week of early release for people who'll pay for EA's special version of Origins. Apelegs is…

Anthem servers holding strong for Origin Access players

Anthem is out now, kinda-sorta - assuming you've got an Origin Access subscription. While the game fully debuts on February 22nd, subscribers can play now. Those with the cheap Basic subscription get a ten-hour trial, while Premier subscribers have been set loose on the full game. I'm also happy to say that some issues in the first hour or two aside, the servers appear to…

Blomkamp’s Anthem story is just an outrageously long trailer

The first thing I did after watching Conviction, the Anthem 'story' directed by District 9 and Chappie fella Neill Blomkamp, was to check it wasn't just a trailer for Conviction, the Anthem 'story' directed by District 9 and Chappie fella Neill Blomkamp. It's not. What I would swear blind is but a four-minute trailer for something I might watch on Netflix once I've run out…

Anthem loadouts: Item slots and rarities, unlocking Javelins and perks

Loadouts in Anthem will be the basis of character progression. Yes there are pilot levels that put a number to it, but it's definitely more of a game where your items indicate just how good you are. This means crafting, and optimising your loadouts, so that they have the best perks for your Javelins. This guide goes over Javelins, the slots that they have, and…

Anthem to debut alongside a Neill Blomkamp short film this week

Anthem launches next week, or this Friday for Origin Access subscribers. For those stuck waiting until the regular release next week, at least there'll be Anthem: Conviction to watch on February 14th, a free live-action short produced by District 9 director Neill Blomkamp and Oats Studio. Set decades before Bioware's power-armoured shoot n' looter begins, it should be a great special effects showcase, at least.…

Anthem release date, gameplay, trailers, PC system requirements, open demo, editions and pre-order bonuses

With Anthem's open demo now concluded, the next time we'll be able to jump into a Javelin will be when the game is released. Since that last update, we've had another video impression from our video team. We've also been busy creating the foundation for our guides coverage, so this roundup piece will have those, as well as various trailers and details on the game,…

Anthem demo PC performance: An early swan-dive into the quest for 60fps

As pre-launch demos go, Anthem's VIP demo the other week left a pretty bad taste in everyone's mouth. PC performance issues abounded. Load time were horrendous (if you even managed to get connected to one of the servers, that is), lag times were all over the place, and the frame rate went up and down like a yo-yo. Happily, Anthem's open demo, which finished yesterday…

Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC continues to be a bit of a mess these days, but provided you haven't been put off by the astronomical prices of the [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s for HDR or, indeed, the ongoing debacle surrounding Windows 10 support for it, then the next step on your path to high dynamic range glory is to get an HDR compatible graphics card. Below, you'll find a…
