Anthem Closed Alpha Begins Next Week, Here's How to Sign Up

Sign up to test Anthem today.

EA and BioWare will host a closed alpha for its upcoming live-service game Anthem and it begins soon. Next week on December 8 and 9, actually. Players can sign up for the playtest today and we have the details on how you can do that.

Anthem's closed alpha is not a pre-order demo but rather a way for EA and BioWare to collect feedback and make changes to Anthem. As a result, players who are accepted into the closed alpha will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement and must not share gameplay from the alpha online or stream the alpha. If you agree to the secretive conditions here's how you can sign up:

Signing up for the alpha does not guarantee a spot as spaces are limited, but there will be a waitlist for players who don't get in but still would like to try and playtest Anthem. Accepted playtesters will be sent a confirmation email and a chance to pre-load the alpha before the official start times. BioWare says there will be multiple play sessions over the two days so it's likely that players will be assigned specific play times.

Customers who pre-ordered Anthem will not be guaranteed an alpha playtesting spot as it is not a pre-order bonus. The alpha is also separate from the promised demo that does come with the pre-order, so just keep that in mind when you sign up a playtesting spot. EA Origin Access members are also not guaranteed an alpha spot.

BioWare is getting ready for Anthem's February 22, 2019 release date. We have an extensive interview with the Anthem developers you can read or check out our Anthem guide here. The deadline to sign up for the Anthem alpha is December 3.
