It’s patch day for Anthem! What, you didn’t see that coming? Nobody else did either. BioWare just stealth-launched Anthem 1.30 Cataclysm today without any preamble, apart from the false starts and crystal event. Surprise?
As we’ve previously covered, Cataclysm adds the new Cataclysm story missions, alliance changes, the new Inversions system, the removal of Luck from the game, buffed weapons (especially melee), difficulty balancing, new gear, and the Cataclysm game mode itself.
“Battle Vara Brom and her forces in a dangerous new game mode that evolves over time. Teamwork is heavily encouraged as you battle against the dangerous environment and time itself, unlock secrets, and master the Cataclysm to earn all new rewards and rank up the leaderboard. The Cataclysm is available on the Start of Expedition screen for all players who have completed the “Incursion” mission.”
