Anthem Now Available Through Origin and EA Access

Sep 12, 2019

Anthem got off to a rocky start when it launched earlier this year, but BioWare has released a number of updates for the game since, including the game’s long-awaited Cataclysm event. Unfortunately, the improvements haven’t had much impact, as Anthem’s playerbase has cratered – the best update in the world isn’t going to mean anything if there’s nobody around to play it.

Well, perhaps Anthem will get a bit of a shot in the arm, as EA has announced it’s joining the Origin Access and EA Access lineups. Anthem will be joined by several other indie favorites on PC, including Yooka-Laylee, The Escapists 2, and Vambrace: Cold Soul. Of course, Origin Access Premier subscribers will also get to play FIFA 20 this month. Check out the full lineup of new Origin/EA Access titles, below…
