Anthem Getting Patches

I am in the middle of my review for this game, but being that I got details on Patches and fixes for Anthem. I will have to put my review on Hold for the time being. I want to see if these patches will make any improvements, because if they do not oh Bioware for shame! 

Anthem Needs Patches Badly

I will be honest with you gamers out there. I am getting tired of waiting for a game to simmer in the oven. There is a pattern that I am noticing with any Next Gen game that has multiplayer not fully cooked yet. the developers rush it out and we as the gamers deal with extreme situations that take away from a potentially fun video game. In this case with Anthem, it is like microwaving a Hot Pocket but the whole Center of it is still Frozen! 

Bioware did a stream not too long ago discussing these patches that we are expecting to drop on March 12th, 2019. 

  • Lots of general crash fixes including the one that’s shutting of PS4s. BioWare says that no PS4s have been permanently damaged from the issue, which some have claimed, but the shutoff problem should be fixed.
  • They addressed the recent viral meme bug of the level 1 rifle outperforming endgame weapons, saying that it’s a goofy bug but an easy fix.
  • Added a 30 second respawn timer to many sections in missions where you can respawn yourself if your teammates won’t.
  • You will be able to launch missions from anywhere in the Fort rather than walking all the way to your Javelin.
  • Crashing into walls/overheating will have some reduction in the animation time to get back on your feet.
  • Common and Uncommon items will finally stop dropping after level 30.
  • They think they’ve fixed a lot of the bugs that have to do with dead Quickplay missions.
  • There’s now a “random Stronghold” option (though with no changes to Stronghold balance between them, I’m not sure why anyone would do this).
  • They think they’ve fixed most situations which cause the sound cutting out bug.
  • Server shutdown messages will be less annoying.
  • Glitches that lock people behind walls should be eliminated.
  • Bug that made it look like your ultimate bar is full is gone.
  • You can prime Titans and you’ll do more damage to them overall.
  • Mark of Ruin works now.
  • Gunslinger’s Mark works now.
  • Melees and Ultimates should do more damage now at higher levels.
  • Ranger grenade cooldown component works now.
  • Wind wall and Ranger dome actually block damage now in higher difficulties.
  • Base damage of Masterwork weapons bumped generally.

This is all fine and good but they really need to address some other things as well. 

  • Syncing of Campaign with Co-op missions. 
  • Weird Resetting of story scenarios. I had to do the same dialogue more than 3 times before it finally settled.
  • Add a waypoint marker for the Expedition areas or Freeplay would be nice. 
  • I do agree with everyone in adding two extra people to make it a Six-Person Squad. 

That is just a wishful list on my part. Look Anthem has a lot of potentials to be a great game, but Bioware I felt as if you dropped a huge ball on something good. I will save my review for after the patches, but there is some competition coming out next week with The Division 2 and of course new content coming to Destiny 2. This might make gamers put Anthem on the back burner and that is something that I hope does not happen. 

I want to read your comments, what other things you want to be patched or added to Anthem for an enjoyable experience? – Beast Out –
