Anthem Microtransactions - Shard Prices in Anthem

Here's your guide to the Shard (microtransaction) prices in Anthem.

Although you can purchase items with earned Coin in Anthem, you can also purchase items with a microtransaction currency called Shards. In this Anthem Shards guide, we'll be providing you with all the details you need to know about the currency, including highlighting the Anthem Shard prices.

If you instead however need any additional details on BioWare’s new game, you can always head over to our Anthem guides hub. Here you can find a full beginner’s guide to the game, as well as an overview to all four Javelin classes.

Anthem Shard Prices

Before we delve into what Shards can actually buy you in Anthem, we’ll get you up to speed on how much the microtransaction currency is going to set you back by in Anthem. Just below, you can see the full range of Shard prices on both the PC and Xbox One versions of the game (they’ll be the same when the full PS4 version launches next Friday).

  • 500 Shards - $4.99
  • 1050 Shards - $9.99
  • 2200 Shards - $19.99
  • 4600 Shards - $39.99

And just below, you can see a range of what the in-game store in Anthem has to offer you. If you press the menu button on the Xbox One controller and then tab over to ‘Featured,’ you’ll be presented with a complete range of all the latest items that are on offer for Anthem players.

It appears that the items in the Featured section of Anthem’s in-game store rotate roughly every 10 days. In the screenshot above, you can see an Epic outfit for the Ranger and Colossus Javelins, and an Epic emote for the Colossus Javelin. Further to the right, you can see items that there’s a bunch of crafting items that you can buy with Shards/Coin.

You can then take these metals, fabrics, and graphics items, and use them in the Forge area of Fort Tarsis to customize your Javelin’s appearance. These are basically the items that you’re going to be using to craft new skins for your Javelins. While you can earn any of these items through playing Anthem, the shop gives you a quicker route of earning them.

One major thing to note is that every item in the Anthem store appears to be purchasable with both the Shard currency, and the in-game currency of Coin. While you’ll earn Coin from simply playing Anthem (completing missions, salvaging gear etc.), you’ll only be able to purchase Shards with real world money.
