This was posted yesterday on the Anthem subreddit, and I missed it because… I was playing Anthem. Anyhow, if you want to read the actual post, you can find that here.

Patch Notes

I couldn’t find a patch number included, but it appears to be a 4 GB download from Origin. Considering the fixes involved, it seems like an extremely large size.

  • The final boss in the “Return to the Heart of Rage” stronghold and crit path mission will now properly appear if a squad of freelancers wipe before reaching it.
  • HDR on console can now be properly turned on.
  • Fixed a number of issues that were causing players to crash.

Considering how many issues with crashing are being reported, I’m not surprised that it’s one of the first issues to be tackled. I only had one particular session that actually crashed, and I believe it was related to my graphics card. Leading up to the crash, the game was stuttering while in Free Roam, at some points getting down to 12-15 FPS. (I updated my drivers after this post, which got my FPS up near a constant 60. I’m enjoying it.)

I haven’t been able to find any official patch notes posted yet, which you should be able to find here, but this came straight from Reddit. If I eventually find one, because sometimes small adjustments slip through the patch notes, particularly these quicker patches, I’ll update this post. In the meantime, keep an eye on the subreddit for any news.
