As if Anthem’s horribly buggy beta wasn’t enough to sigh about, the game’s release schedule just released. If you remember the god-awful tiers that Battlefield V released in then you know what you’re getting into here too.
Today on Twitter, EA Help tweeted the “Ways to Play Anthem” chart which details when each edition of the game will be accessible.
Just like with Battlefield V, those who actually bought Anthem are going to be among the last to play it. Users who have a subscription to EA’s Origin Access Premier will have access to the full game on February 15, a full week early.
Players who have EA/Origin Access Basic will have access to the 10 hour demo on February 15 regardless of whether or not they’ve pre-ordered the game.
If you pre-ordered the game and don’t have a subscription to one of the EA Origin Access tiers, then tough luck. You’ll be playing the game at its latest release date.
This information has been known for quite some time now, but this Tweet seems to have reignited the hatred many have towards the complicated release schedules many games have now.
