Anthem closed alpha test set for December 8

EA announced today that the closed alpha for Anthem will start from December 8 to 9.

Gamers who are interested in participating in the closed alpha test should register at the EA Community Playtesting website. To register, make sure you have an active EA account. Once you are registered and signed in, choose the platform of your choice and submit. Unfortunately, signing up for the closed alpha test does not guarantee you will be invited to take part, as it’s on first come and first served basis.

If at some point there are no room left for the closed alpha test, you can still sign up on a waitlist. EA can’t however promise that everyone on the waitlist will be able to join. Once the playtest has started, be sure to check your email to see if EA have sent you instructions on how to download the closed alpha test client.

Those who are accepted to participate in the closed alpha test can pre-download the client to make sure that when it goes live, you will be able to play right away. Instructions on how or where to download it will be sent via an email.

For someone who have subscribed to Origin or EA Access, they still need to sign up for the closed alpha test. According to EA, the closed alpha test isn’t tied to pre-orders or EA Access/Origin Access membership.

Here’s an overview of the game:

  • Team up with up to three other players in cooperative adventures that reward both teamwork and individual skill.
  • Choose from an arsenal of customizable Javelin exosuits – armor designed to provide its pilot with incredible offensive and defensive capabilities.
  • The Javelin exosuits – and accompanying gear, weapons, and equipment – can be heavily customized and personalized as you rank up and defeat powerful foes.
  • Anthem’s visually spectacular, evolving, and open world features unpredictable conditions, hazards, and enemies.

Anthem will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 22, 2019.
