Anthem won’t release until February 22, but EA is giving BioWare fans a chance to check out the sci-fi action shooter early with a closed alpha December 8-9, 2018: sign-ups are ongoing at the publisher’s Community Playtesting program site and will continue until end of day tomorrow (December 3, 2018). At least 60 GB of free space is required. If you don't get in, this won't mark your only chance to try the game before launch. EA and BioWare have plans to offer an Anthem demo next year, and EA/Origin Access members will presumably get their usual limited early access to the game as well. Its full release is set for February 22.
