Anthem Demo jan 25-27th TIMEZONES?

★★ Guide

@EA_Alexander


Hey bud do you know the exact time the Demo will go live in terms of Timeszones?

Will it be a worldwide opening - everything at the exact same time or will EU servers go online at a diffrent time than the US servers etc?

 

See attached image of the timings from the Alpha tests. I had to do some planning to make sure i didnt miss the timeslot in the EU.

 

Please let us know if you have this info or are able to obtain it cheers :D

 


Asking cuz i have some left over vacation days from 2018 (use em or loss em situation) so i figured i'd plan to book off a few days around the times the Demos are out and fully immerse meself in the world of Anthem.

Do you also have any information as to when we will be able to download the demos onto our platforms?

E.G. can we download the Client on PS4 Store now or must we wait more closer to the date?

Cheers in advance o/

You should be able to preload it now, it's in the store on the differing platforms.

I'll add my 2p worth here...in case someone is reading this from other parts of the World.

 

Here is the Help thread detailing when the Demo starts:  https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/anthem/anthem/anthem-pre-launch-demo-info/

 

"The first pre-launch demo runs from January 25 (at 17:00 UTC) through January 27, 2019."
