For those of you who didn’t get into the Anthem VIP demo this weekend, or did and had a rough time doing anything, BioWare is holding a do-over. The company posted this official notice on their Twitter page yesterday evening, letting players know that they would be doing a second VIP demo this coming weekend, and as a token of their regret over the issues this past weekend, all four of the Javeline suits will be open and ready for you to play with.
As a further thank you, all four javelins are available now in the Forge for players who have played in this weekend’s demo. Won’t get a chance to jump in? They will be waiting for VIP participants next weekend!
Log out and back in to see them if you’re in game. pic.twitter.com/TOg24SAW7M

A lot of people like to take pop shot at Electronic Arts and their developers, most of the time for good reasons, but this is one time we really have to tip our hats to the devs for making an effort to make things right with the fans who wanted to play Anthem. They were transparent and apologetic for the mishaps, and now they’re giving players a second shot at the demo. Whatever you may think of EA and BioWare, you gotta respect that move. We’ll share our thoughts on Anthem later today.
