Anthem Demo Details

It’s worth noting that progression in the demo for Anthem won’t carry over to the final version of the game, which releases later in the month on February 22. You’ll start out from the hub area of Fort Tarsis, and you’ll then be able to explore a limited amount of the open world in the four Javelin suits (we don’t yet know when each will unlock in the demo).

Not only can you explore a limited amount of the open world in the Anthem demo, but you can also take on a select amount of missions. Should you manage to progress far enough into the demo, you’ll even be able to take on a Stronghold with up to three other players. EA has also teased a reveal of some new content we've yet to see in the game.

As of right now, this is all the information that you need to know about the two demo versions for Anthem. Now that we’re all done here, you can head over to our Anthem Ranger Javelin guide, or our Anthem progression guide for more.
