"Long-range plans" for Anthem will change update process

Bioware is moving away from Acts, and aims to provide challenges, chases, and "fun themes" for players.

Anthem was released earlier this year to a rather lukewarm reception, recently heading to Origin and EA Access as well, and now Bioware has released a blog post looking at the future of the game, which will change how updates are delivered.

Bioware recognises that there are still concerns regarding "core issues" in Anthem, and the studio is acting upon feedback from the community, dedicating a team to it with early results looking good already.

"In order to address these long-range plans, we are moving away from the Acts structure for updates. Instead, we have additional seasonal updates planned for this year that we think players will enjoy. These events will deliver challenges and chases similar to what you've seen, and are built around some fun themes we're bringing to the game," the developer adds.

The studio reinforces their desire to be transparent regarding Anthem's future, adding that "we know more work needs to be done to make Anthem better".

We'll have to wait for more details on long-term changes, but players are encouraged to head to the test servers if they want to help build Anthem.

The Cataclysm update this summer was a big change for the game, adding plenty of new challenges, but it's uncertain where Anthem will go from here, as the specifics aren't exactly nailed down in this post.

What do you think the future holds for Anthem?

"It engages and entertains even if it is a rather distilled and disjointed experience compared to the studio's usual work."
