Anthem made its debut among a lot of noise but after the relatively soft launch period, it didn’t manage to hold up that well. Bioware has slowed down updates for Anthem but the latest patch feels slightly useful for fixing matchmaking related issues.
Anthem update 1.21 was released today by Bioware bringing a number of improvements related to Cosmetics, UI, and Matchmaking. It might not add free content but it is still better than nothing.
Bioware has also revealed the details on what exactly is included in Anthem update version 1.21 which was released recently. Among the fixes that are listed is a fix for the appearance of select cosmetic items, fix for a rare instance of the mouse cursor disappearing, and fix for a combat-related bug.
Here are the full details on Anthem update 1.21 as shared by Bioware. This patch should require a download of more than one GB.
Cosmetic Fixes -Fixed a number of bugs that prevented select cosmetic items from being presented correctly in Prospero’s store and/or the Forge.
● Fixed an issue where the mouse cursor would disappear on specific instances when going into the Forge (while using keyboard & mouse controls).
● Various other minor UI bug fixes.
Combat Fixes -Fixed a bug that would sometimes cause characters and enemies to appear frozen after the frozen effect had worn off.
Matchmaking -We’ve made some additional improvements to our matchmaking experience by enabling longer timers for players to match into a squad, while also fixing a bug from a previous update that forced some players to matchmake for longer than intended. The new max limit for matchmaking should take no longer than 90 seconds.
Anthem launched on February 22, 2019, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
