Seven months after the official release, Bioware's looter shooter Anthem is being dumped to EA's monthly subscription services on PC and consoles Origin and EA Access. The game is available in its Standard and Legion of Dawn editions.

It would be quite an understatement to say that Bioware's looter shooter Anthem had a troubled launch. Revealed back in 2017 as the next big thing from EA and Bioware, a looter shooter that would finally tick all the boxes, Anthem has been going downhill for a long time and by the looks of it, the game is now in the worst period since its release.

EA officially announced that Anthem is now available on their monthly subscription service Origin Access or EA Access if you play on the consoles. Anthem arrives to subscribers only seven months after its release and it's available in Standard and Legion of Dawn editions.

Subscribers on PC who have the Origin Access Premier tier of the service will get the fancy version, which packs extra armour for each Javelin class. PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC players with the regular subscription will get the standard version of the game.

For those who are unfamiliar with EA's service, it includes a ton of games from EA for a monthly fee of £3.99 or £14.99 for the Premier version. As long as you stay subscribed, you can play all the games that are available but once you cancel your subscription you won't be able to play them anymore unless you buy the game directly.

Several other games also joined the service today alongside Anthem and here is all of them: Out of the Park Baseball 20 (basic edition), The Escapists 2, Ultimate Chicken Horse, Vambrace: Cold Soul, Yooka-Laylee.

As for Anthem, the game recently received a huge update which added the Cataclysm end-game activity originally promised for the spring. Last week, Bioware promised that they are not giving up on Anthem and that more updates, bug fixes and improvements will be coming but at a slower pace.
