    We're adding more server capacity to the #Anthem demo right now. Hang tight while we work to get everyone into the game.

    I'm watching it on twitch and the scripted chatter between the characters is just as annoying as I thought :p

    Lots of loading screens too and the jetpack overheats like a bitch.

    Ughh, performance is awful and it seems you are forced to play with others (correct me if I'm wrong), no thanks EA, you can keep your live service.

    I'm not liking what I'm seeing either. I saw a thread on reset that skins in their store can bought for $20 and emotes for $12! Prices aren't final but yeah, no. Back to warframe then :p

    @lucidus

    Yah, they somehow thought that this crap was going to compete with Warframe?

    I think not, the only thing EA will be selling soon is their sports games, they have absolutely no business in the PC market anymore.

    There are too many other smaller players that do it way better and for far less.

    Bioware should 'pull a Bungie' and get far the hell away from EA.

    20 for an emote? oh EA you never fail to impress.

    waited fifteen minutes only for the game to do nothing at all tried to close it but origin and my pc then came to a complete crawl as it told me anthem was still running in the background had to sign out of windows to get back to normal and now we are both stuck trying to connect to servers again.

    last time i had this much fun I was having surgery on my testicles

    The very first Mission is currently not working as the game ends in an infinite loading screen that for some reason also stressed our CPU while loading, reaching 70 degrees of Celsius; temps higher than those we witnessed in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (and we all know how CPU hungry and un-optimized Odyssey can get).

    Now when we got stuck at the infinite Expedition loading screen, we closed the game and tried to re-launch it. And, surprise surprise, the game did not work. The game got stuck in the main menu screen while trying to connect to EA’s online services, without giving us any connection network error.

    We’ll talk about the game’s performance in a separate article, however you should know that this game will stress your CPU like crazy. So yeah, you’ve been warned.

    I got a code for the VIP Beta, but as mentioned by others, the servers are tanked by the legion of people trying to get in.

    I really, really hope this isn't true.

    Forced to play with others? Does this mean that I can't just play with my friend(s) and that randos will be joining our CoOp adventure? That is a solid pass for me if true (someone please confirm). I've only kept some interest in the hopes of a decent CoOp game for my buddy and I without strangers ruining it for us.

    EDIT: This could be just for the demo. If so, not a big deal I guess. If they are forcing you to play with randos in the full game they are kidding themselves..

    Why is it that the EA's "Live Service" is always waiting for the "Service" part.

    So what I'm hearing is when you are grouped in a dungeon it's using p2p tech, and if the leader/host dc's you will get kicked from the dungeon. They'll have to change that before release.

    The rest of these connection issues are standard fare for online game launches. Maybe the real launch will be smoother thanks to these paying game testers.
    And if you're one of them:

    The hubris on these idiots is truly staggering, I don't want to play with random people and contrary to what EA thinks, not everyone is enamoured with the idea of online 'everything'.

    The Division does this the right way, everything is available to be done solo or coop (no randoms are forced on you, the only exception being if you don't have a full group of friends for strikes).

    It's a pretty game I'll give them that. It's hard to tell from a stream if the textures are as high as they appear though. They do look detailed.
    My only complaint is that combat suffers from the same thing as Overwatch. Your screen can overloaded with spell effects and it can be hard to tell what's going on. I prefer a more "clean" battlefield.
