Anthem, developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts, didn’t get the best reception when it launched in February this year, and that is putting it lightly. BioWare is still updating the game but things aren’t looking too great for its future, as the game’s lead producer even left the developer last month after the limited-time Cataclysm event went live. Therefore, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that the game is now available in the EA Access and Origin Access Vault.
EA Access or Origin Access subscribers can now play the Standard Edition of Anthem for as long as they want. Electronic Arts and BioWare revealed this news in a new post and explained that this is the best time to play Anthem, even explaining why you should start playing the game today.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#1cedbd” class=”” size=”22″] Now is the perfect time to join the fight. There are no level requirements in a Cataclysm, anyone at any level is welcome to enter. So even if this is your first time piloting a javelin, you can still face the storm, fight your way through the arenas, and earn both points and rewards. You’ll also collect Crystals (a new in-game currency for use during this Cataclysm) that can be used to purchase War Chests and vanity items at a special seasonal store.
In addition, the Cataclysm gives you access to powerful Masterwork and Legendary melee items, support gear, weapons, and more – and you’ll need them. Brutal foes are waiting for you in the chaos of this storm, from vicious Bristlebacks and Crystal Troopers to Vara a military leader in the Dominion who commands a group of powerful Valkyries.

With Anthem moving to the EA Access and Origin Access Vault, the game will no doubt see some more players come in and Electronic Arts or BioWare will probably boast some player number statistics in the next month or so.
