The Anthem Demo and Beta are going to be released soon and even though these are meant to give players an idea regarding what the game is about, that might not be the case when it comes to Anthem. The game is going to release on February 22nd and there are plenty of people on the fence regarding whether or not this is something that they would be interested in playing.
For starters, the demo is not going to be the final build of the game. This means that things can be different when the game releases. This might be a bit misleading for people that are not up to date with the news around the game. Other than that, players are going to start at level 10. This means that players will not know much much grinding it takes to get to that level. People will also not be able to customize their characters.
Players will not be able to use the “pilot picker” feature and there is no tutorial either. You will be able to check out a few missions and explore part of Fort Tarsis. Being limited to a part of the place is great but I would like to have the ability to move around the whole place to get an idea of what the area is like.
Players will be exposed to the in-game economy but that will be different in the final version of the game as well. There are plenty of things that are different from the final release and the demo so the only thing that is for sure is that you will be able to take the Javelins out for a spin and check out their abilities. If you are interested in being ironman for a day or two then you should check out the demo or beta but these do not look like true representations of the actual game.
Let us know what you think about the Anthem demo and whether or not you are interested in playing the game when it releases on February 22nd.
