Pre-loading has begun for the demo version of Anthem across PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The VIP demo will unlock on January 25 for everyone who has pre-ordered a copy of the game or is a part of the EA/Origin access subscription service. All participants who meet these requirements will also be granted 3 extra demo codes to give friends to ensure you have a squad to play with! For players who do not meet these requirements, the demo will become available to everyone starting February 1.
Bioware has shared some details about what players can expect from this demo build of Anthem. First this Demo is not based on the final game but is a “specific demo build.” Progress from the Demo will also not carry over to the final build of Anthem so be prepared to lose all items upon Anthem’s retail release. The final thing is this demo will not include any tutorials opting instead to toss player right into the action. The Demo for consoles is roughly 25 GB with PC coming in at roughly 43 GB so plan your time needed to get it downloaded accordingly.
Anthem launches February 22 and is available now for pre-order.
