With gamers anxiously waiting for their favourite development teams to come back from holidays, Bioware checked in and provided details on what to expect in the fifth week of Anthem: Icetide, as well as some poetry. No, we're not kidding.

No need to worry - Bioware didn't switch to poetry full time and the poem in question has to do with Anthem's lore. Dubbed Korox in the Box: An Icetide Tale, it's quite a long poem, so we'll link to it instead of pasting it. 

It's great seeing the dev go into Anthem's lore knowing that storytelling is definitely their stronger side, and they've promised even more is coming soon, with characters you know and those you still don't.

Naturally, there's more coming this week in Icetide than just poetry, starting with The Sunken as the next weekly Stronghold. It comes with two unique challenges - Thin Ice, which is the daily one, and Cracked Ice as the weekly one.  

Here are the weekly store refreshes:
