Anthem released patch 1.1.1. on May 7 which brought a few updates to the struggling game. However within that same announcement, Anthem revealed that Elysian Caches will no longer be available starting on the same date.

For the update, changes include:

  • Fixed an error where Weapon and Components stat values were not displaying correctly.
  • Fixed a problem where suit power level (rarity) was not correctly being calculated based on equipped items.
  • Fixed an issue with Spanish audio in a conversation in the Sunken Cell stronghold.
  • Fixed an issue with French audio in a conversation in the Sunken Cell stronghold.
  • Fixed an issue causing a slight delay in Salvaging at End of Expedition
  • Partially defeated encounters will no longer re-dispense loot from previously defeated creatures.
  • [PC ONLY] – Right clicking an item to salvage it at the end of expedition screen now requires the mouse button to be held.

The removal of the Elysian Caches is not a surprise given what Anthem has been going through. The game had a strong launch, with the promise of new content to be released beginning weeks later. However, a series of problems started to plague the game include loading times, issues with the loot system, and even reports of consoles crashing. It did not help that allegations of the game being rushed came out in the open with Anthem developer BioWare not giving much of a response.

BioWare has tried to fix the game and implement tweaks, but it appears to be too late, as a larger number of players seem to have left the game. This has since led to problems with matchmaking.

In its latest earnings report, publisher Electronics Arts stated that initial projections for Anthem was that it would sell around five to six million units by March. However, CEO Andrew Wilson has said that the launch itself “did not meet our expectations.”

Wilson went on further to say that the Anthem team has heard feedback from the community and thus “is now very focused on continued improvements to the game, and will then bring more content updates and in-game events that will enhance and expand the Anthem experience.”
