BioWare: Anthem Public Demo Players "May See Recurring and New Issues"

Let's get ready for round two.

EA and BioWare are getting ready to launch the public demo for Anthem. After some complications last week that saw players unable to even access the VIP demo, BioWare says it devoted time to resolve those issues. But due to the nature of the demo, there's no guarantee the same problems won't happen again this weekend.

In a blog post published today ahead of tomorrow's public Anthem demo, BioWare head of live service Chad Robertson says players who joined last week's VIP demo "should see significant improvement in multiple areas over last week." Robertson says that while these changes should be an improvement over last weekend's VIP Anthem demo, BioWare warns players could "see recurring and new issues."

BioWare says that scale testing is ongoing and that servers should be able to handle the incoming players. One of the issues in last weekend's VIP demo was a large influx of players. Many found themselves waiting in the starting screen after being notified that servers hit capacity. However, if more players than anticipated join the public demo, measures are in-place to control the entry rates for incoming players.

Robertson also detailed changes that are being made for the launch version of Anthem that won't be included in tomorrow's public demo. These include stability updates, performance improvements, and the Launch Bay social hub.
