EA has revealed that there are three different ways that you can play Anthem, BioWare’s forthcoming online multiplayer action role-playing game, before it releases next year.
The three different ways will be through the VIP demo, Early Access with Origin Access Premier, and the Play First Trial on EA Access and Origin Access Basic.
The VIP demo will begin on Feb. 1, 2019, and will be open to EA Access subscribers, Origin Access subscribers and players who have preordered the game.
Early Access begins on Feb. 15, 2019, for Origin Access Premier members who wish to play the game a week in advance of its release on PC. Members will have access to more than just a demo; they will also be able to access the full game, as long as they are subscribed to Origin Access Premier before the game’s launch.
Lastly, the Play First Trial will let players play 10 hours of Anthem if they are subscribed to EA Access on Xbox One or Origin Access Basic on PC. Whatever progress players make will be carried over to the full game if the game is purchased with the 10 percent member discount, or if you change your subscription from Origin Access Basic to Origin Access Premier.
