BioWare is launching a massive playtest of their latest PS4, Xbox One and PC game, the Anthem VIP Demo.
Set for launch on all platforms on Friday, January 25, fans received good news this week on the start times.
There have been times where players have found themselves missing out on certain playtests due to the platform they use.
Because EA Access and Origins are only available on PC and Xbox One, this has meant problems for PS4 players sometimes getting early access.
However, BioWare has confirmed that everyone, no matter what platform they play on, will be getting access to the Anthem VIP Demo at the same time.
The official Demo start time has been set by EA and BioWare for 5PM, GMT, on Friday, January 25.
Central Europe will get access at 4PM, the United States East Coast at 12pm and the West Coast at 9am.
There is three current way to get access to the Anthem Demo this week – EA Access, Origin Access and Pre-ordering the game.
EA has also confirmed that anyone with VIP access can also invite three friends to join them in the demo, opening the game up to even more players.
If you’re playing on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you’ll need to wait until the game servers are live on January 25 to launch and sign into the game.
This still puts PS4 players at a slight disadvantage but the good news is that an open demo is also being arranged.
The VIP Demo can be downloaded via the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store or EA Access services, and will require you to login into your EA account.
You can register for the demo by visiting the Anthem website, inputting your code and selecting your preferred platform.
If you do download the Anthem demo ahead of release, you should note that it weighs in at around 23GB on Xbox One and roughly 26GB on PS4.
“If you are an Origin Access or EA Access subscriber or if you digitally pre-ordered on Origin, Xbox Store, or PlayStation Store, you have been automatically registered for the VIP Demo & do not need a code.
“If you’ve pre-ordered Anthem through any other retailers, you will need a code to access the VIP Demo. Please contact the retailer you pre-ordered from to obtain your code.
“If you are an EA Access or Origin Access Subscriber, or Pre-Ordered the game, you need to Sign In to access the Friend Pass page.”
For those who want to know just how long the new demo lasts, EA has confirmed that the Anthem VIP Demo ends on Sunday, January 27.
The open demo, available to everyone to download on all platforms, is scheduled to run from Friday, February 1 to Sunday, February 3.
EA has dropped several teases about what will be available during the Anthem Demo, including: “We want to give you a taste of all you can experience in Anthem, we’ll set you up with some missions and then a slice of the world is yours to explore.
“We start you off at level 10 in the demo, so you get to play with a more powerful Javelin and use more powerful weapons.”
