When a game reaches the EA Access service, it is usually a kind of winning round – an opportunity for a well-received game to reach a new audience through a subscription service. But for Anthem that's a different story.
EA has announced that Bioware's loot shooter is targeting EA Access and the PC's Origin Access subscribers.
For Anthem, however, this is not the opportunity to kill potential players, but perhaps the last opportunity to attract a substantial audience of all kinds.
Kickstart the jetpacks
Anthem had promising experiences before the start, coming from the team behind the Mass Effect and Dragon Age games, giving players the opportunity to team up in a hostile world and fight jet-packs against massive opponents.
However, the game was ultimately criticized for its low game content, weak story, and problematic attempts to combine single and multiplayer gameplay. Despite $ 100 million of digital revenue, the company has a hard time finding a consistent (or happy) audience. Only a fraction of the $ 100 million comes from microtransaction purchases over many years.
And so on to EA Access, where the game is offered for free along with a number of other titles for a monthly fee. Could it be where the luck of Anthem turns? We hope, if only in the interest of Bioware, a developer with a rich heritage that deserves to be celebrated despite a series of disappointing titles.
