With Anthem finally releasing worldwide today, I’ll list some of the current known issues, bugs, and errors. I saw a post earlier on Reddit’s r/AnthemTheGame subreddit about loss of framerate after yesterday’s 5GB+ patch, usually resulting in players getting less-than-stellar framerates. As far I can tell, I’m getting a constant 25 FPS but it doesn’t look that bad. In fact, I feel most of my issues stem from the my Nvidia drivers being 9 months out-of-date (and I’m currently in the process of updating them.)

If you remember the (never fixed) Mass Effect: Andromeda bug of the sound cutting out in the middle of a session, it appears to have made a comeback. Happens exactly the same way, that is, randomly, and persists until the game is closed and launched again. Reddit user spacedublin

I can’t post all the issues in that thread, or I’d be here all day. However, you can find the megathread here, and browse through. I haven’t encountered any of the issues above, though I just downloaded the game yesterday. One of the most common I’ve noticed are the extremely long load times, 30 seconds to almost 2 minutes at times. Even for me, I’m running Anthem off a M.2 drive (solid-state for those that don’t know) and loading times for other games are typically less than 15 seconds. That being said, the only similar game that had long loading times was Destiny 2, and those loads seemed to be around the 45 second mark at the most. Of course, Destiny 2 is over 100GB, and Anthem is roughly half of that. If I come across any more interesting bugs or issues, I’ll add them in.
If you have some issues, let me know the comments and I’ll add it the above list as I go. Hopefully, most of you aren’t having major issues and can enjoy the game.
