After being extended through February in the last update, Anthem: Icetide is entering its eighth week and Bioware have quite a few things in store. New Stronghold, new armour sets and a new lore-story - it should be a fun week for sure.

"As you may have noticed, we added two new Icetide armor sets to the game last week and have two more on the way for this week, too! Just look at this tusk-bearing lad", Bioware wrote. And we've got to admit - the "tusk-bearing lad" is quite the sight, although we'd probably go for a meaner choice of words. 

This week's Anthem: Icetide Stronghold brings back Heart of Rage, with the daily and weekly challenges being Heart of Ice.

Ever since reading and after it, we've been drooling for more of Bioware's narrative mastery. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a bit longer this time around but the good news is that Anthem's writing team is preparing something special.  

"We’re taking our time with this last one since it’s, well...let’s just say it’s a little different than the others. The BioWare writing team really had some fun with it, so we can’t wait to share it with you all", they wrote.
