Electronic Arts has revealed the dates for the VIP Demo of Anthem, as well as the Open Demo. According to the company, consumers who pre-order Anthem, as well as EA Access and Origin Access subscribers, will get access to the VIP Demo on 25 January 2019, and all players will have a chance to step into their Javelins and experience Anthem for themselves on 1 February 2019. Both Demos will be available on Origin for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
VIP Demo players will be the first Freelancers to face the dangers of the world of Anthem, and will receive an in-game item celebrating their trailblazing spirit. They will also see all their progress carry over from the VIP Demo into the Open Demo. All Freelancers should keep an eye on the horizon during the Open Demo, as the developers have a special surprise in store for the most daring Freelancers.
“It’s time for the fans to get their hands-on Anthem and experience it for themselves,” said Mike Gamble, Lead Producer for Anthem. “We truly hope they enjoy this taste of flying and fighting in this brand-new world our team has been crafting for many years.”
