Anthem Closed Alpha Dates Announced, Here’s How To Sign Up
As the video game industry approaches The Game Awards ceremony taking place on December 6th, developers are preparing their best outfits for the night and their minds for noteworthy announcements. They’re also preparing some surprise reveals during the night too, including the renown BioWare studio. Though a closed alpha for Anthem was revealed in September, another wave has opened up for other gamers looking to test out the upcoming title.
Between December 8th to the 9th, PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 owners will get a chance to try out the latest BioWare closed alpha experience. “It’s an opportunity for you to check out Anthem but we’ll also be adjusting things like matchmaking and server load on the fly,” says Electronic Arts. “These Community Playtests are more limited than what we want to share in the pre-launch demos. All of these factors combined mean that we’re making access to our Playtests limited, which is where the “closed” part of the name comes from.”
It’s based on a first come, first serve basis, so you’d best act quick. Here’s how to sign up, according to EA:
Anthem Closed Alpha Sign Up
- Head to the EA Community Playtesting site.
- Sign in with your EA Account.
- Choose your platform, and let us know when you want to play. Once your choices are completed, click Submit.
- Signing up does not guarantee you’ll be invited to take part, it’s on a first come first served basis.
- If you’re in, you’ll see a confirmation on the Community Playtesting site and you’ll get an email from us letting you know how to download the Anthem Closed Alpha game client.
If you didn’t or can’t get it for the time being, it’s okay! There’s a wait list available just in case those few who sign up can’t participate during the announced closed alpha dates. It may take a bit of patience however. Additionally, those of whom have previously participated in a Community Playtest will receive an email and instructions to pre-downloaded the alpha files. Keep in mind, this is an online-only alpha, so you’ll need an internet connection to get started; this means Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners will require a Live Gold membership and a PS Plus account respectively.
For more information on the forthcoming closed alpha, check out the FAQ page here. Now, unfortunately for the streamers out there, Anthem has a “strict non-disclosure” agreement in order to continue onto the testing phase. Players can’t “talk about, stream, or otherwise share information about the game.”
