BioWare’s Anthem seems to have everyone saying the same thing: it’s fun when it’s working, which unfortunately isn’t 100% of the time. Hopefully that’s something that BioWare can fix with patches in the future, but is it really acceptable for a triple-A title to launch and be – for some users – barely playable?
Issues with servers, load times, plus a whole heap of bugs have rendered the game unplayable for lots of gamers, and with free offerings like Apex Legends dominating the gaming world right now, maybe Anthem is just too little, too late.
Despite only launching a week ago, Anthem‘s already seen a pretty significant price drop on Amazon, where the PlayStation 4 version of the game can now be picked up for just $51 instead of the $60 it launched at last week.
It’s good news for people wanting to play the game who didn’t want to pay the big bucks, but it’s pretty bad for people who paid the $60 initially.
Im glad @anthemgame flopped. Now hopefully a price drop will make it more reasonable for us poor people to also play

One player tweeted: “Everyone knows what a fast price drop means…sucks for EA takes another L as Anthem struggles to leave stores.”
I’m waiting for a price drop based on the issues and lack of content. I would’ve purchased already at full price but there is to much negativity around it. They messed up loot in a looter shooter, smh @anthemgame @EA

Wow Crackdown 3 is already on sale, Between Fallout 76 & Anthem I wonder which game has had the fastest price drop since initially launch.

The drop in price is likely to increase Anthem’s dwindling sales, but it’s not going to do much for EA’s reputation…
Have you been playing Anthem?
