After a long period of time keeping things under wraps about Anthem, BioWare has finally announced a new update. It is a public test server designed for the multiplayer space shooter’s PC players.

Apart from the new update, the studio also has new details about the endgame Cataclysm event, which was originally promised to release in May. Interestingly, it will finally be revealed tomorrow during a developer livestream.

The 1.2 update for Anthem does not necessarily bring significant changes to the game, let alone add much in terms of new content outside of additional Legendary missions. However, it gives players the option to fast-travel during freeplays, allowing them to teleport to any of the map’s strider locations. This should make traveling in the mode a little less exhausting.

Perhaps the most interesting thing BioWare announced is the Cataclysm event, something fans have been eager to hear about. It is believed to be one of the most challenging activities in the game, with a promise of new endgame content.

The studio’s very own community manager, Jesse Anderson, made the announcement on the EA Forum, suggesting that players can get their first look-see of the event during a developer livestream tomorrow at 4 p.m. EDT. As far as when the event will really go live, the developers did not specify any date whatsoever.

EA originally promised to deliver the Cataclysm event before the month of May ends. Unfortunately, BioWare decided to put it in an indefinite delay at the end of April. The developers explained that more work was needed to be done before everything could be finalized. Instead of providing a release date, Anderson said that BioWare will be eliciting players’ help in an attempt to test it first.

“Rather than rush it out the door, we want to take time and get feedback from you and make changes based on what we hear," Anderson said on the forum post. "In order to do that we are releasing a Public Test Server (PTS) on PC, which will allow you to see the content as it is being developed and gives you the ability to provide feedback.”
