Anthem Strongholds: Stronghold missions, preparation, Stronghold tips

Strongholds in Anthem are essentially raids in other MMORPGs. You'll bring a full team of Freelancers and journey into the belly of the beast - dungeons full of enemies to kill, with a series of objectives to accomplish before facing off against one of the major bosses. These are by far the biggest challenges in Anthem, so this guide will give you an overview of…

Feature: Anthem? I hardly knew 'em!

Anthem review

Hello, it’s me, the resident BioLiker, here to tell you wot I think of Anthem, a game about which you probably already have opinions, whether you’ve played it or not. Anthem is a shoot 'n' loot online game where you, a hero mercenary with a special mech suit, and a squad of matchmade or real life buddies save a lush alien world from certain alien…

Anthem crafting: how to get embers, upgrading blueprints, inscriptions

The big thing to get used to about Anthem is the constant need to craft and levelling up blueprints. The better your ability to create a certain weapon or gear type, the better your overall gear will be and the easier it will be to kill enemies. You'll need Embers as you progress through the game, and our guide on crafting in Anthem will go…

Anthem did nerf loot drops, but only after accidentally boosting them

If you were zapping around Anthem over the weekend and felt a patch had made loot drops stingier, well, it did - but only because a bug had briefly made BioWare's looter-shooter more generous than intended. Oops. While BioWare are still patching away to fix problems since Friday's official launch (and its unofficial "early access" launch a week earlier), they're also opening up about longer-term…

Anthem Finding Old Friends mission – gain entry to “Princess” Zhim’s hideout

Tassyn has a lead, but says that you're going to need some backup. That backup, your avatar thinks, should be your old friends from back in the Heart of Rage incident. You've grown apart since then, but it's time to get the party back together. Here is the intel on how to get inside the camp.

Have Anthem’s loading times been improved by the Day One patch?

Anthem's Day One (minus two) patch has finally arrived, with one of the big 'High Level' fixes being its atrocious loading times, specifically when it comes to what Bioware refer to as 'older disk drives'. But how much have they actually improved by? Well, I've gone and re-tested the same HDD, SSD and NVMe SSD I tried on Tuesday to see what's what.

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…
