EA Announces Closed Alpha For 'Anthem'

Nichole VegaDec 01, 2018

EA and BioWare have announced that the first closed alpha test for Anthem will take place on December 8th and December 9th. Will you sign up? As is typical for an alpha, this will be used to test out matchmaking, server loads, and more.

This is why the initial test is only open for two play sessions across two days; it ends on 9 December. BioWare also points out that signing up to be a tester doesn't necessarily mean that you'll be invited to become one, so temper your expectations if you do decide to register. There will be multiple sessions which participants can partake in, but you are limited to only one device for the alpha, whether its Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or PC. If you don't get in, your name will be placed on a waiting list.

If there is no room for you, don't worry. Additionally, closed alpha is not part of the pre-order program or through EA Access / Origin Access programs.

At any rate, the requirements now stand at a minimum of an Intel Core i5 3570 or AMD FX-6350 processor, with at least 8GB of system RAM, and on the video card front, you'll need to be running an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 (4GB) or an AMD Radeon R9 390 (8GB) or better.

Quick guide on how to sign up and participate in the games' first public closed alpha test.

Registration is on a "first come first served basis", according to EA.

In terms of the alpha's goal, EA explains, "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".
