Players have noted that on the brand-new Anthem PTS there is an option to invite players to a team from guilds in addition to friends lists, recommended selections, and favorites. This will allow a guild leader to organize and curate a reliable and reputable selection of people for future expeditions.
This feature will roll out as part of Cataclysm, a season-long event with increased challenges and rewards for the daring that’s currently in testing. “[In this patch] you’ll have a chance to explore new areas, take on tough enemies, and face some of the deadliest weather events the world of Anthem can throw at you,” BioWare said.
Meanwhile, if you were looking to see Anthem showcased at EA Play this weekend, you came away disappointed. While Anthem was highlight of 2018’s event, it didn’t even have a spot in the lineup this year, though BioWare’s Ben Irving did give a brief, reflective interview during the show.
“Anthem does have a future. A very bright future, we hope,” he says. “We’ve learned a lot these last few months, we really want to make the game better, we believe Anthem can be a really amazing game. We know we have some work to do, we just want to work with the community and build it together and make it the game that everyone wants it to be.”
