I read that if you pre-ordered Anthem you get access to the VIP demo, but I see no access to the VIp demo in the Origin app so I’m guessing you have to pre-order the expensive edition to get the VIP access? I was looking for a friend code to give out, but I got nothing so far.
It looks like the VIP friend codes aren’t platform specific, just linked to your EA account, so if anyone has extras on their given platform, you can send them to other platforms.
Anyone who gains access to the VIP demo will get three keys to send out to friends so they can also play, which should definitely make it easier to team up in a game designed all around cooperative play. Said friends can play on any platform they like, so they’re not stuck to the platform you choose (though obviously that would help in terms of teaming up as this is not a cross-platform game.)
Freelancers. Ready to dive into Anthem™? The VIP Demo will be the first chance you can get hands on the game and is available from January 25 - 27 . Visit https://www.ea.com/games/anthem/anthem-demos for information on how to access the VIP Demo.*
I’ve pre ordered and after some chatting with EA help I’m finally downloading at nearly 40 MB/sec… it’s a good size file.
Below is a link that up to three people can use to try the game out this weekend:
Hopefully some of you on the fence jump on over. I’ve read nothing but good things about this game and looking forward to seeing y’all there
I’ll be on PC
actually all you need to do is pre order. How you get access to the demo was a bit squirrely. I had to look within the store, find the game, then click on “try it first” to start the down load. The EA rep sent me a link for sharing with up to 3 people
I got in, got a squad interface that wouldn’t work, restarted it, and now I’m at “Connecting to Online Services…”, which I’m assuming they implemented so we weren’t spamming them with DDOS-like requests to try to connect again, lol
I occasionally am doing this with people who don’t use the OTG discord, so here is a link to mine, if anyone wishes to join us. I’m not averse to using the OTG discord, btw, just helping people find me.
