BioWare has finally announced that there will be a closed alpha test coming soon for Anthem.
According to EA, the Alpha Test is supposed to fine tune the matchmaking and stress test the server. So really this is a brief player test and will be available on three major platforms: PC, Xbox One and PS4. The test runs from December 8-9, 2018. Keep in mind that you can play on all platforms, however you’ll only be allowed to sign-up to play in one of the three devices (PC, Xbox One and PS4) so choose wisely!
You can sign up as of today by heading over to the EA community playtesting site and so of course it’s a given that you’ll be required to sign in with your EA account. If you don’t have an EA account, the site will give you the option to create one. So choose the platform you want to play on then submit.
EA has stressed the fact that signing up doesn’t guarantee access to the Alpha Test; it’s on a first come first serve basis. Though after signing up, you’ll get a confirmation email from EA, giving you instructions on how to download the Anthem Closed Alpha Game Client.
Just so you know, once you get access to the Closed Alpha, you’ll have to agree to a non-disclosure agreement with EA, where you must not talk about the game, stream or share information about the game to anyone. Basically whatever happens in the Closed Alpha should stay in the Closed Alpha. However, you can privately share the registration link to a small number of trusted friends and family members.
Now that you will be testing the game, if you want to report any issues within the Closed Alpha, you can head over to Closed Alpha forum, EA answers HQ and you will need to sign into the EA account you using for the closed Alpha test.
The Closed Alpha is online only, so that means you will need an internet connection. Furthermore, you will need to be a Gold member for Xbox one or a PS plus member for PS4. That being said, it’s not a must that you be an EA Access member nor an Origin Access member in order to be eligible to play the closed Alpha.
