To secure yourself access you can sign up right here, via the EA’s Community Playtest programme. You’ll have until 3rd December to sign up, and you can only pick one device to play on.

Being an alpha test, it’s expected to see a lot of issues, with BioWare warning it’ll be “adjusting things like matchmaking and server load on the fly.”

The closed alpha is going to be “more limited than what [BioWare] want to share in the pre-launch demos,” but it should give you a nice flavour for what we can expect.

Anthem releases in full on 22 February 2019, although we’re expecting to see some brand-new footage and get some more info at The Game Awards 2018.
