  • Unless Anthem Next is leagues above the original, it honestly feels like it's time for Bioware and EA to cut their losses on this one. We'll see what happens.

    • Im hoping its enough of a full rework of the game to bring its support. Ive always thought it looked like it had potential, but its been an absolute dumpsterfire. From what Ive seen, I would be lying if I said I wasnt interested. This rework seems to be akin to making a human out of a skeleton.

    • Well on one hand, Final Fantasy XIV was once in same situation and thanks to new team and lots of effort it is now one of the best MMORPGs. On the other hand i doubt fucking EA would give developers enough time and resources even if there was still enough of talented people in the husk of Bioware to turn this around. I think its time to say final prayers to once great studio and start betting on how long until Codemasters meet same fate.

    • No, now is the time to deliver the product that was originally promised, and that customers paid for. Don’t encourage developers to continue to do shitty things because it’s going to cost THEM money to deliver to their customers what was promised.

    • I have the MCC on PC and Halo already has a great modding community on the PC. If Infinite sucks like nearly all of 343 Industries Halo games I won't be surprised, but I'll be content with the state Halo is in.

  • I really think the game could be good but it’s just not there right now. It lacks mission variety, satisfying loot grind, and interesting characters. It’s got good gameplay and all the classes play well together and encourage cooperation. But the problems with this game aren’t in the gameplay solely.

  • Sadly, we know these execs don't have the patience nor the sympathy for the devs to stick with it and make it good. If No Man's Sky could rise from the ashes, giving free updates to finally pay off big in not only sales but also PR, then I'm sure Anthem could too - but none of the right people have the power to make that happen. I'd love to be wrong though.

  • A week later and there is only *silence* Yeah, they are about to pull the plug, but they don't want to scare away the "I believe in this dead game" movement. This way they can get the last little bits of drops of the cash cows milk. Don't be fooled. If they were really coming back, they would be hyping it with some "unofficial" announcements by now.

  • Anthem had the roughest development process... EA pushed biowares hand on releasing it. However Anthem to me has the best combat system for looter shooters. If Anthem gets a massive overhaul people will return to the game but idk how many will stick around.

    WattShowWattShow17 dager siden
  • Anthem definitely feels like a laundry list of bad priorities... but I was pretty excited to see how it would turn out when I first learned of the concept. Having a single-player hub to play through story-driven moments, then venturing out into the overworld with other players to take on missions, seemed like a really cool idea. Despite the clear creativity that went into the game, however, it's a clear example of why a lot of people dislike Electronic Arts; they keep releasing titles no one was really asking for in hopes of squeezing a monetary sponge.

  • I hope it gets one more chance the gameplay is good but the game is full of bugs, glitches and the story was too short and too fast and the farming felt to much forced they even went so far as to increase the points you needed for the item that was increased 10x more in price what you need for the item making it impossible as a casual player to get the rewards from the in-game store without using real money to get them items spending money already on a spend game is a no go for me and this is my sound overly hated to you but if they charge the day 1 players for the remake the game can die in my opinion and the company that made this game should be sued, I won't pay a second time for the promises that where made and got lied for wat was promised and I dit pay for the special edition which cost $ 79.99 on day 1 so i tink i have more then the right to demand a free charge for its remake as an day 1 Buyer of the game

People don't seem to understand MAJOR people in their company have left, people in lead positions, this has happened multiple times in the years. They cannot go back to being how they were because they are not the same company anymore. This is Bioware now, this is how it's going to be
