After suffering several delays, the Anthem update, Cataclysm, is finally live. And here’s everything you need to know about the event.

In the story, the residents of Bastion are under threat. There are evil creatures that are loitering in the woods, while Dominion forces continue to harass them. But they are nothing compared to the Cataclysm.

Players will then have a tall task of ending the menace that’s gripping Bastion. But it’s not going to be easy. There are new enemies in the Cataclysm, including the Crystal Troopers and the Bristlebacks.

But nobody is as brutal as Vara, the leader of the Dominion who has Valkyries that do all his bidding. She took power when the Monitor was defeated, and she proves to be even more power-hungry. Her ambition is to control the Anthem.

The players’ task, therefore, is to take down Vara. Her defeat would be instrumental in finally ending the Cataclysm.

Apart from the new enemies, you will also gain new access to new melee items, both Legendary and Masterwork. You can also get new weapons, armors, accessories, and support gear to help achieve your goal.

The Cataclysm event was announced by Anthem earlier this year. It was supposed to drop in March, but then April and May came and went, still nothing. In June, Bioware then released a demo of the event, but no new development was announced after that.

Players were then surprised when, without warning, Bioware dropped Cataclysm for Anthem.

Anybody can join the Anthem Cataclysm, regardless of their character’s level. You can find the button on the “Game Modes” menu. Clicking on that will immediately allow you to gain access to Cataclysm. If you are in doubt, just look for a menacing hole in the sky and strong winds to know that you are live.

But don’t explore this menacing world just yet. The storm is deadly because it will cause damage to your javelin as long as you are exposed. The important thing is to seek shelter right away, which you will find in arenas.

There are many things to do in the Anthem Cataclysm. There are missions and tasks to be completed with corresponding rewards. There are combats to secure loots and currencies. You can also increase your ranking and points through the event.

The Cataclysm event will last the whole season long for Anthem. There are war chests, rewards, new story missions, leaderboards, inversions, and scoring.
