The BioWare blog has been updated with a brief explanation of what Anthem players can expect who are lucky enough to be invited into the game's first closed alpha that is kicking off on December 8th and December 9th. During testing phases throughout the weekend, players will be helping developers "ensure the key systems and technology that power the game will hold up when we launch" and specifically on "load balancing and scale testing servers and matchmaking".
To those of you who registered to playtest the game, we hope you enjoy it. You’ll have a chance at the end to provide us feedback, we’d love to hear from you. For those who aren’t able to get in and still want to try out the game, don’t worry we’ll have another chance for you to do so in our VIP Demo starting Jan. 25, or Open Demo starting Feb. 1. The demos will include sections of the final game, so you can enjoy Anthem ahead of its February 22 launch.
As it is a closed alpha under NDA, it's unlikely that we'll hear much about it....or will we?
