Anthem now available in the EA Access vault

Oh, Anthem. Where did it all go wrong for you? BioWare’s ambitious game-as-a-service, sci-fi shooter should have been one of the games of the year. After all, this was ‘proper’ BioWare. These were the peeps that made the Mass Effect trilogy! Unfortunately, they seem to have forgotten to include enough story, were stingy with loot, and didn’t provide enough variety to keep gamers around. Well, Anthem may be getting a little bit of a second chance as the game is now part of the EA Access Vault. While this obviously doesn’t solve every problem that the game has, it will hopefully entice more gamers to play.

If you’re unfamiliar with EA Access or its Vault, EA Access is a subscription service that allows you to play any game in the Vault. It also grants you discounts on any EA product you purchase from the Xbox Store. And if you’ve been living in a cave for the last few years, here’s the launch trailer for Anthem as well as the official description –

On a world left unfinished by the gods, a shadowy faction threatens all of humankind. The only thing that stands between these villains and the ancient technology they covet are the Freelancers.
Join with up to three other players and assemble high-tech, hand-crafted, uniquely powerful exosuits. Explore vast ruins, battle deadly enemies and claim otherworldly artefacts. With every mission, you and your Javelin exosuit grow in power. Fight the dangers of an ever-changing world. Rise united to defeat evil. Triumph as one.
Anthem™ invites you to experience a co-operative Action-RPG set in a new and mysterious world from BioWare™ and EA.
