please see first post for Open Demo (beta) timings. yes you can continue to level up. but i think the max level 15. (we all start at lvl 10)

and VIP players should have all 4 Javelins unlocked.



So get on Origin Access Basic before 4th Feb 2019 and you can play Anthem up to 10 hrs.

So what do you guys think of the Demo overall?

I find the game to be too boring. Same fetch quests, the world lacks colour and looks bland.
The enemies are practically the same with only more health as it gets harder.
There are way too many particle effects around it is hard to see enemy health and/or where the enemy is attacking from especially those seeker mines that are whizzing around on the ground and hitting you with explosions.

There is also no PVP so whatever skin you make or buy, like only the other 3 with you will notice it. If they even notice it to begin with.

The fact that it was in delayed for some time tells me that this game was not fun to begin with and they need help to make it viably fun.

GamesRadar put it as a game similar to Diablo where you grind and grind for slightly better armor over and over. If it is this kind of game, it is really not my cup of tea. I don't have a lot of time as is and this game feels more like a dread to play as opposed to me looking forward to playing it.

That's my pov. Anyone else has their own perspective or is the feeling mutual?

This whole genre is all about long term loot grinding the endgame repeatedly. The story has always been filler for leveling so it doesn't get boring.

Just played the demo for a few hours today.

Picked storm javelin as my 2nd javelin.

Basically hovering is asking to be killed. Love the fire and ice attack.

Too much loading screen imo, damn annoying.

Server also not stable. Kena kicked out twice today.

Will consider to buy once the game is on discount (50% or more). Hopefully still got other people playing by then.

yes the devs acknowledged the armor was not correct in this build of the dmeo.

Yeah the playstyle for Colossus is different from the others, you need to keep rushing forward using the shield and hulk smash.

Also read on Reddit, since picking up ammo also reloads your weapon, you can have miniguns in both your weapon slots and just swap when empty. Not sure if they will change this for launch.

Played the demo for a good like 17 hours over the 2 weekends, trying different builds and combos and linking up with my mate in a interceptor to see how it works. Good fun, seeing the videos of the late game items makes me happy and some what hopeful EA/Bioware deliver.

Looking forward to this.
