Howdy Freelancers! We have word of how Anthem is moving forward after the supposed end of the Cataclysm, let’s dive in and check out what’s happening.

The Cataclysm is Finished in Anthem

The Cataclysm has officially finished in Anthem, it’s done. However, the gameplay elements of the event have been left in the game. This is because BioWare wanted to leave us with more content between now and their next content release. So for the time being, we’ll still be able to play the Cataclysm and try to improve our own personal high scores.

While the Cataclysm is still open we will be able to earn Crystals, the in-game currency used to purchase items from the Seasonal Store. It’s worth playing the Cataclysm and collecting these because the Seasonal Store is going to return later in the week. However, it’s also important to spend the Crystals at that point, because they don’t cross over to the next seasonal event, whatever that might be.

What’s Leaving?

What BioWare has confirmed is definitely leaving the game right now is Daily Cataclysm Challenges, Story Missions, and Freeplay Events. This means that there will be no additional challenges to complete, and Freeplay will return to what it was like before the 2 week pre-Cataclysm period. Basically there are no longer Crystals.

Those story missions associated with this Cataclysm are also gone, so if you missed them it’s hard luck. BioWare hasn’t said that these will never return, so it could be possible that with a future Cataclysm it’ll be possible to play through them.

What’s Next for Anthem?

With the announcement of the big change from Acts to seasonal content, BioWare has shifted gears in terms of what they’re bringing to Anthem next. With that said, BioWare has not confirmed what is coming to Anthem next, in fact they’ve actively said that they’re not ready to reveal it.

This is a bit disappointing, because I thought that they knew what they were working on next when they announced their future content plans. I don’t think we will have to wait as long as we did for the Cataclysm though, since BioWare has been working super hard on Anthem for a very long time now. I think they’re ready to bring a lot of new stuff our way, so watch this space.

One thing I really wish they would bring to Anthem is the territory mini-game that The Immersive Gamer came up with recently. That would totally change the endgame for Anthem.

Let me know your thoughts on the end of the Cataclysm in the comments.
