Today, EA announced Anthem will soon be releasing a “VIP Demo”, which can be accessed through a number of ways. The demo starts this weekend, starting January 25th and ending the 27th.
Those who pre-order, join Origin Access or join EA Access to gain access to Anthem’s VIP Demo. Those who play in this demo will receive an exclusive in-game item for being the first to play.
If you are an Origin or EA Access subscriber, or you digitally pre-ordered the game through Origin, Xbox Store or PlayStation Store, you’ll automatically be registered for the VIP Demo.
If you’ve pre-ordered Anthem through any other retailers, you’ll need a code to get into the VIP Demo. You must contact the retailer you pre-ordered from to receive your code (boo).
Apparently, the demo is currenlty unavailable to download at the moment, but will be available “closer to the start date”.
You can read more information about the VIP Demo on EA’s webiste. Anthem is set to launch on February 22nd, 2019.
