BioWare and EA have churned out Anthem update 1.70 for PlayStation 4, and while the patch notes don’t make for much of an interesting read, the update still weighs in at 2.9GB, so it must be pretty significant.
Anthem Update 1.70 Patch Notes
- Various bug and stability fixes.
That’s all there is to digest, sadly. However, considering the size of the update, it’s likely there’s quite a few significant improvements tucked in the patch.
Anthem was released for PS4, PC, and Xbox One back in February 2019 on the back of a wave of hype, although it’s fair to say the game didn’t exactly have the impact BioWare had hoped for. Much criticism was directed towards the lacklustre campaign and lack of activities, as well as just being, well, a bit underwhelming when you compare it to Destiny.
BioWare recently revealed plans for a massive overhaul of Anthem, which you can read about here.
You may ask whether it’s too late to turn Anthem around at this point, but it still has a dedicated fan base, so hopefully BioWare can at least improve things for existing players.
