PlayStation 4 owners experienced a significant issue when it came to BioWare’s Anthem. The game made their PlayStation 4 systems crash. Fortunately, an Anthem patch will be releas]ed in an update that is supposed to come out on March 12. That should fix the frustrating issue.
Ben Irving, the lead producer of Anthem, explained in a Twitch stream that they discovered why these crashes occur.
More than that, both Sony and BioWare investigated the problem, and they discovered that there were no bricked consoles.
“After a thorough review, we have not encountered an instance where Anthem has ‘bricked’ a PS4 console. If you are experiencing anything different, please reach out to @EAHelp so we can track the incident and investigate. In all the instances we’re aware of that we’ve investigated in partnership with first-party, they can be powered back up if you know how just to turn the power back on, and cycle it properly,” Irving explained.
An Anthem would come out next week to fix PlayStation 4 crashes and more
Chad Robertson, head of live service at BioWare, also shared the news on Twitter. He explained that the patch that will come next week should fix this issue.
“We’ve identified several causes for the temp power-down crash some PlayStation 4 users experienced,” Robertson said. “Fixes for the top issues are in the Anthem patch next week. If you encounter a game crash where your PS4 console won’t respond, you can manually power down and restart it – no risk of damage.
That isn’t the only Anthem problem that will be fixed by the upcoming Anthem patch. For instance, BioWare is planning to fix some issues related to damage scaling. This problem made certain high-level weapons become less powerful than the primary weapon that you unlock when you first start playing the game. Nonetheless, we do not know whether this issue will be fixed in the next update as well.
