Anthem’s latest update fixes bugs and not a whole lot else

    
18

The latest update for BioWare’s somewhat touch-and-go MMO shooter Anthem has gone live, but if you’re hoping for some new content or major adjustments, you’re unfortunately out of luck this week because this patch is about as minor as they come – witness the cranky players. Nevertheless, there are a few bug fixes that should at least provide some small quality-of-life improvements.

With the new update, players should no longer receive loot for javelins besides the ones they’re currently using. It may not be more loot, per se, but it’s at least more *usable* loot. And if you’ve been thinking that Ursix and Titan spawns seemed to be a bit low in Freeplay mode, it’s not just in your imagination — but don’t worry, that problem should be fixed now, too. And speaking of mob spawns in Freeplay, this update also makes it so that Titans, Ursix, Luminaries, and Fury enemies will no longer despawn when another player starts an event. That about covers the highlights of this Anthem patch, but if you want to read the full patch notes for yourself, you can peep ’em over at the game’s official site.

Kinda sad to see that so many great ideas now buried under this… game

This is already shoveled off for Austin to ‘maintain’, where it will be swept under the rug to rest alongside SWTOR’s rapidly decaying corpse.

Meanwhile, Dragon Age 4 rebooted as ‘live service’ is in development. Aren’t we excited.

Hmm. I ran freeplay at GM1 looking for some Titans and in about 45 mins I had four, FOUR! legendaries. And not the useless usual crap, 3 components and one assault.

Now, I don’t know if that is going to be commonplace, but I’m quite a fan of the new patch right now. Heh.

Game is definitely back-burnered for now. Who wants to log in to run the same 3 strongholds and procedural fetch and kill quests? Love the gameplay, now it just needs more game to play

I’ve seen game launches like this before – none of them ended well except for Final Fantasy. Oh, well, yet another “AAA” EA/BioWare game in the list “wait for 90% discount”. They manage to release “masterpieces” like this almost every year recently.

FF was a sub game that absolutely had to replace FFXI. SE didn’t have a choice but to fix that game.

Destiny had the same type of launch. Yet it fixed itself and spawned a sequel. Division, same thing, and the sequel is amazing. So…yeah, I’m expecting the game to turn around and can’t wait till it does.

Well to be fair, there are a lot of bugs in that game.

“Not a whole lot else”, because they said before this would be an early bug fix patch, and then the content patch would release closer to the end of this month.

I imagine that also covers things like fixing the loot drops other other non-content fixes and the like.
