Howdy Freelancers! If you haven’t noticed, EA have published an update to the information they have available on the upcoming VIP early access demo for Anthem. This information is pretty important, because it may require you to either do something quick to ensure you’re playing on the 25th of January, or simple keep an eye out for a download.

Physical Pre-orders

For any Freelancers who have pre-ordered Anthem through a physical retail store, GAME, Gamestop, SmythsToys, or a Playstation Shop for example, you’ll have to request demo access.

This doesn’t mean that you need to contact EA with evidence of your purchase or anything tricky, it’s much easier than that. You simply need to get in touch with the retailer you specifically pre-ordered with in order to get a code to register your copy of Anthem with EA.

Let me point out to you now that you probably got this when you initially pre-ordered the game, so I hope you’ve either already done this, or have held onto that code.

With this code in hand you need to head over to the EA website and register your physical copy of the game, using the aforementioned code. This will give you access to the demo. I’m not 100% clear whether you register your Playstation/Microsoft account at the time in order to have the demo available to you, or if you simply get a redemption code for said demo nearer the time of it’s release.

This should be all you need to do in order to access the VIP Anthem demo. I imagine you’ll be able to download it at the same time as those with digital pre-orders, but let’s wait and see.

Digital Pre-orders

These are a lot simpler, in fact you’ve done everything you need to do. With any pre-orders through stores such as the Playstation Store, Xbox Marketplace, or EA’s own digital storefront, you’ll be able to download the VIP demo when it goes live.

I don’t know exactly how it will work on EA’s platform, but on home consoles you’ll be able to see the VIP demo when it’s available to download. All you need to worry about is downloading it before the servers go live so you can spend as much time in it as possible.

Keep an eye out here as well as on social media for the date on which the download of the demo goes live. I’ll also try to get the details about the exact timings it’ll be running from and to for you Freelancers as well.

Let me know how you’ve pre-ordered and how you’re playing the Anthem VIP demo in the comments.
