Anthem released patch 1.0.4.02 today to put in place some major changes from the previous update. Patch 1.0.4 had been released March 26, which brought with it Legendary Missions and Elysian Caches.

This latest patch hopes to tweak the drop rate so that players now have reduced chances of getting components for javelins that they are not using. The patch also makes sure that loot players earn from an Elysian Cache will now immediately show up after a Stronghold finish.

Anthem 1.0.4.02 Patch Notes

Here are the notes for Anthem's latest 1.0.4.02 patch.

- Fixed an issue that was causing loot to drop for javelins other than the one being used.

- Fixed an issue that was causing Elysian Cache items to not appear until completing another activity or restarting the game.

- Addressed a number of issues that could occasionally cause Nvidia highlights to crash.

- The newsfeed will now properly show content again upon launching into the game.

- Fixed an issue that was causing Ursix and Titans to not spawn as frequently in Freeplay.

- Fixed an issue that would cause the screen to shake when enabling DLSS and turning off motion blur.

- Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause players not to be able to interact with Owen, or hear his audio at the end of the Legendary version of the mission “Finding Old Friends”.

- Titans, Ursix, Luminaries and Fury enemies should no longer disappear when another player starts an Event in Freeplay.

Anthem continues to be plagued with a number of issues, both game-related and non-game related. The latest was an article published by Kotaku alleging problems during the development of the game. While BioWare has already commented on the report, Kotaku made a follow-up report stating that General Manager Casey Hudson admitted in an internal memo that the problems expressed in the article were real. According to the memo, management has made it the top priority to solve the problems related to the quality of the workplace and the staff's well-being. Hudson goes on to say that they were also concerned with the article releasing names of specific developers as it is not only unfair but also traumatizing for people who are singled out.
