BioWare and Electronic Arts have announced the demo dates for Anthem ahead of its launch next month, and there’s special privileges for those who pre-order the game. Because of course there are.
The VIP Demo starts on January 25th and runs through until January 27th. To access the VIP Demo you’ll either need to pre-order the game, be an EA Access subscriber, or be an Origin Access subscriber. For us PS4 players this limits us to pre-orders as EA Access is only available on Xbox One, and Origin Access is limited to PC.
If you pre-order the game via the PlayStation Store you’ll automatically be included in the VIP Demo. You won’t need to enter any codes, you’ll just have access to the demo when it goes live. However, if you pre-order via Amazon or other retailers, you’ll need to enter a code that comes with your pre-order.
For those who take part in the VIP Demo, you’ll get an exclusive in-game item that’ll show everyone else that you were among the first to play the game’s demo. Yay?
If you don’t want to pre-order but still want to try the game before buying, the Open Demo runs from February 1st through to February 3rd.
Anthem will release on PS4 on February 22nd, 2019. Pre-orders are, of course, open.
