Official Developer Livestream Patch Discussion

Lead Producer for Anthem Ben Irving and Community Manager Jesse Anderson discusses major changes coming to Anthem this March in a recent developer livestream.

PS4 Hard Crash Fix

Major PS4 Crash Issue Fixed In The Next Update

One major issue PS4 players are encountering when playing Anthem is the hard crash and shut down that happens to PS4 consoles. This should now be fixed in the latest update.

Gameplay Fixes and Changes

Gear Power Changes

Gear Power Changes

Masterwork and Legendary items will be adjusted for proper damage scaling, especially in Grandmaster 2 & 3 difficulties. This means that melee and ultimate damage will increase due to higher gear power numbers.

Quickplay Dead Mission Fix

Quickplay missions will now be fixed to remove non-progressing objectives, resulting to "dead missions". This also means that players will no longer be matched to players on "dead missions".

UItimate Bar UI Fix

 UItimate Bar UI Fix

A common issue on the game is that players load into missions with a full ultimate bar, but cannot actually use the ultimate. This UI glitch will be fixed in the next update.

You Can Now Prime Titans

You Can Now Prime Titans

Titans seem to be immune to combo priming since launch. The next update will now allow Titans to be primed for combos.

Masterwork Weapon Buffs

Masterwork Weapon Buffs

Masterwork weapon damage will be significantly improved in the next update.

Level 1 Defender Fix

It appears that the standard Lvl 1 Defender deals more damage than intended. The next update will fix this issue.

Green and White Loot Will Be Removed for Level 30

Green and White loot will no longer appear for players at Level 30, and is confirmed to be implemented on the next patch.

Quality of Life Fixes

Expedition Quick Launch For Solo Play

A feature limited to squad play which is the expedition quick launch, will now be making its way to single player. Now players can quickly launch an expedition without walking all the way to the Javelin forge.

Colossus Recovery Animation Fix

Colossus Recovery Animation Fix

Colossus will now have a quicker recovery time after overheating or crashing after the update.

Respawn Restricted Areas Removed

Much of the game's respawn restricted areas will be removed so players can get back into the action after being downed. For example, there will be a 30 second respawn cooldown time now for Stronghold missions.

Other QoL Fixes

  • Freeplay server notification will not pop up as much
  • "Open the Cortex" has been removed
  • Random Stronghold selection will be added

Other Miscellaneous Fixes

Other Fixes Coming This March 12

  • Server Shutdown notification will appear on Freeplay only when there's actual shutdown
  • Mouse button 4 is no longer bound to Escape / Back for PC
  • Fixed respawning behind blocked off walls
  • Colossus can now shield charge through destructible objects
  • Mark of Ruin is now functioning properly
  • Ranger grenadier component now functions properly
  • Players will still get loot while downed when a Titan is killed
