Jump Into the Cataclysm: Anthem is Now in the EA Access Vault

By Heidi Nicholas, 1 month ago
It's a divisive game to say the least, but if you're one of those still looking to get each of the 46 Anthem achievements, good news: it's now in the EA Access Vault.


This means that those with EA Access can start downloading the Action/RPG now to get the Standard Edition (the Legion of Dawn Edition is available to those with Origin Access Premier). EA's post explains that due to the issues with their 1.4.0 Patch, they're extending the Cataclysm event for another week. It won't end now until September 17th, meaning that any players who pick up Anthem now that it's in the Vault will also be able to get in on the limited-time Cataclysm event. Any player of any level can enter the Cataclysm event, and you'll know you've arrived when you're greeted by "howling winds and a dangerously darkened sky". The event includes three stories, beginning with "Tip of the Spear", and plenty of opportunities for tasks, loot and combat, as well as a new in-game currency. There's also enemies unique to the event; Bristlebacks, Dominion Crystal Troopers and Vara, the leader of a group of Valkyries. Even when the event is over, there's still a lot to do after donning your Ranger, Interceptor, Colossus or Storm javelins — not to mention achievements to hunt.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
