Anthem's First Closed Alpha Event to Take Place December 8-9

Anthem's First Closed Alpha Event to Take Place December 8-9

All you need to do is sign up to EA's Community Playtesting program - but do it right now as space is limited.

Those who are interested in being invited to the closed alpha are told to go over to the EA Community Playtesting site and register there.

Choose your platform, and let BioWare and EA know when you want to play.

The Anthem closed alpha has been dated and it will take place next weekend. BioWare's goal with this alpha is to test matchmaking and server load, which is probably why the test will only be available in time-limited sessions instead of being open for a full 48 hours.

He added: "If only more owners (of professional football clubs) took his example of how to benefit the community, be involved". In the aftermath of the crash, William paid tribute to the "big contribution to football" made by the owner of Leicester City.

During the Alpha Test Session, players will be able to test all four types of Javelin suits (Interceptor, Ranger, Colossus, or Storm). If you don't get in, your name will be placed on a waiting list. Players with a subscription to EA Access or a pre-order for Anthem will not be given priority access or be guaranteed a shot at this first closed alpha. When registering your interest, you'll need to pick the specific platforms and time windows you're hoping to participate in. You can learn much more about this at the EA Anthem homepage.

According to Darrah, testers will seemingly be picked on a "first-come first-served" basis, although he admitted he wasn't fully sure on that score.

Keep in mind that signing on for the alpha means you will be under a strict NDA. But EA "can't promise that everyone on the waitlist will be able to join", continuing: "Once the Community Playtest has started, check your email to see if we've sent you instructions to download the Anthem Closed Alpha client".
