If you've followed <em>Anthem<\/em> throughout its life cycle, you know it has had one of the rockiest launches of any game in recent memory. It had a lot of promise early on with its amazing Javelin suits and beautifully-detailed worlds. Upon closer inspection, the game was rushed before it was really ready. Tight deadlines and the urge to please online gamers doomed <em>Anthem<\/em> from the very start.\r\n\r\nStill, Bioware has made efforts to improve as much of the game as they can. Their most important update was their Cataclysm event. It has introduced new challenges, in-game currency, story missions, enemies, war chests, and rewards. Unfortunately, a lot of major issues at launch remained.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=yWHsIshj4ZM\r\n\r\nThose who've come back to <em>Anthem<\/em> after this recent update in August have expressed their gripes. This begs the question: Can <em>Anthem<\/em> survive and still become a great online multiplayer that gamers should go out of their way to check out? That remains to be seen. However, we recently got some insights about some additional changes heading to <em>Anthem<\/em>. These updates are brought to us by Bioware's head of live service, Chad Robertson.\r\n\r\nHe basically says the core issues that are still present are being looked at. Unfortunately, there aren't any quick fixes that can address them. Rather, they require a much larger team and in-depth strategies. According to Robertson, the early results of these progressions are promising.\r\n\r\nHe also confirmed that seasonal updates will continue to come out for the game, which will introduce new content and new challenges. Is this the big rehaul that users have been hoping for? Unfortunately not. Still, the updates show that Bioware isn't just giving up on the project all together. They're still supporting the game and working as quickly as possible to make it better in the right departments.\r\n\r\nJust recently, <em>Anthem<\/em> entered EA's Origin Access basic subscription service. Thus, for a low $5, you can play <em>Anthem<\/em> and other EA titles. This low cost is much better than the original price of <em>Anthem<\/em> when it first launched. If <em>Anthem<\/em> on this platform can spark interest, Bioware could see this as life for a game that was doomed before it was even released.\r\n\r\nIf you have <em>Anthem<\/em> and haven't played it in a while, these seasonal updates should give you more content to sink your teeth into. For those who don't currently own a copy, Origin Access may be worth exploring. Or, you could wait and see if <em>Anthem<\/em> will be offered for free. Judging its current trajectory, that's a real possibility.
