Earlier this week, we learned that BioWare is pushing back some of its major upgrades to the content / features of the anthem, in order to focus on other repairs. To better ensure that new updates are stable, a public test server for PC players will be opened in the studio, a common tactic used by other successful games, including Overwatch, The Division and Rainbow Six Siege, just to name a few.
As part of the Reddit update update, BioWare wrote: "There are so many factors that can lead us to look at our plans – whether it's bugs and stability issues, feedback from players or complications with a function that requires us let's take more time to deliver it. Our goal is to tell you about new content and features once the work is done more closely. "
BioWare will not talk about its updates from the start. However, the studio will launch a "feedback game for players," which will give dedicated PC players a chance to test the main features before starting to move to a wider player base.
We hope this means that BioWare will begin testing new boot systems, as this continues to be one of the biggest players the players have. It will be impossible to make everyone happy, but getting direct feedback from dedicated players, before making new live updates, should go a long way toward improving the long-term anthem.
KitGuru says: At present, testing servers will be limited to a computer only, which is not unusual. From the sounds of it, however, BioWare does not want to implement testing servers for console players too. Are many of you still playing an anthem?
