Bioware's decision to extend Anthem: Icetide through February means we're entering the last week, and perhaps symbolically - it's where it all began - in the Heart of Rage. Also, Bioware are being great sports about the Christmas decoration jokes.

Bioware made sure to remind Anthem players to go and check out The Cypher's Kiss interactive, branching story, and we wholeheartedly agree, as the dev's wordsmiths really had a blast creating it - and it shows. 

We cannot guarantee the emotional reaction you'll have, but that's what a good story does in our book, no pun intended I guess. Anyhow, you can find the link to The Cypher's Kiss here .

As for Anthem: Icetide's last week, the dev wrote, "Yes, the holiday lights and snowy vistas will soon melt away back into the rainy, humid jungles of Bastion that we know and love. Don’t worry, Twitter, we didn’t forget to take the lights down. (It’s okay, though. We laughed, too.)"

The part Anthem players need to take notice of, however, is that the previous season rules apply in this case as well, meaning crystals earned during Icetide will be reset. So, you have a week to put them to use, after which it's bye-bye. 

As it says in the title, the final week of Anthem: Icetide takes players to where it all began - the Heart of Rage, with Heart of Ice being the daily and weekly challenge. The store refreshes are as follows:
