The Anthem Demo's File Size, Release Date and More Have Been Revealed

By Sam Quirke, 1 month ago
We have discovered a new store page for Anthem's upcoming demo. The page reveals a few extra details about the demo, including a potential early download date and a hefty file size. First, here's the description given on the Microsoft Store:

Experience the world of Anthem™ ahead of launch during the Anthem Demo weekend. Suit up with the Ranger Javelin and unlock another Javelin of your choice for a preview of the adventures waiting in Anthem. Unleash Your Power. In a world left unfinished by the gods, a shadowy faction threatens all humankind. Only you stand between the Dominion and the ancient power they covet. Team up as heroes in this cooperative action-RPG from BioWare™ and EA. *DEMO DETAILS AVAILABLE AT PERSISTENT INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED TO PLAY.
On the Japanese Microsoft Store portal there are a few more details. The page confirms that the game will be Xbox One X Enhanced with HDR 10 and 4K Ultra HD support. According to EA's official press release, which we covered previously, the demo will be available to EA Access members or pre-order customers first from January 25th, with the demo going open to the public from February 1st. However the below store page suggests that the demo will be released on the 23rd.


This may well be to compensate for the hefty file size of the demo. According to the store page it'll take up 23.58 GB of space.

You can find out all of the official details on the demo plans from EA's Anthem Demo page, which also confirms that Early Access to the full game will be available to EA Access members on February 15th. It is expected that Access members will get the usual 10 hours of trial play time.
