You may have been busy playing Anthem all weekend if you’re an EA/Origin Access subscriber, but the game does not officially launch in shops until this Friday. And it’s then Anthem will receive its big (and some would say much-needed) day one patch.
We’ve been playing the game a lot – Martin published his early, unpatched Anthem impressions on Monday – and one of the chief grievances we’ve found is its progress-blocking Tomb challenge, which requires the user complete a bunch of fiddly challenges in the game’s open world before being able to progress. Tasks included killing enemies, opening chests and reviving allies.
Happily – and quietly – this has been changed so you’ll start making progress towards these beginning when you hit level three.
Eurogamer’s review will go live after we’ve had a chance to play the game with its day one patch installed.
