Can Somebody Please Explain To Me What's Wrong With My Anthem Game?

★★ Newbie

Hello everybody, I am an origin access premier subscriber and during both betas I was not able to play anthem due to an infinite loading screen o the main menu. I tried to contact support and somehow wasn't able to, whatever, no big deal. However, now I'm trying to download the preload for anthem and I keep getting an error message and to check my internet connection. My internet's just fine, I just downloaded a couple of updates from origin actually. I'd love to at least download a game that I've paid for, any advice? This whole ordeal has been super frustrating and I don't know why it's just for this game and not for the other 9 origin games...

Can confirm it's available for PC.

 

Also I got a notification in my Origin client as soon as it was.

Maybe I should add, that was 19:00 CET.

Preload is available.  Not at my home PC to see if it will let me load it though.

 Yes.

It seems my last post was mistakable.

I am downloading since 19:00 CET (about 17 mins now), and from the speed I can tell I am not the only one. Although 'speed' doesn't seem to be the right word Thinking

Maybe 7 Million grabbit hunters are trying to DL at the same time?

 

I just got my email to DL my preorder (PC, LOD), but I plan to DL maybe Tuesday...

 

I suggest only those with early access DL ASAP - it should help ease the payne?

I think that's considerate of you.

Thank you!

I'm seeing reports of the download servers being hammered and running slow or at standstill.

 

Probably not you, just a load of keen people.

 

A little time for the hog-pile to ease should help.

If it still don't works, try to clear your Origin cache.
All settings in Origin (only in Origin not in the games) are back to default settings after this.)

 

  • Close Origin completely.
    (right click on the Origin symbol in the task bar > close)
  • Press the Windows key and "R" at the same time.
  • Type or copy and paste "%ProgramData%/Origin" (without quotes) into the new window > hit ENTER
  • Delete all the files and folders in the Origin folder, except for the "LocalContent" folder.
    (The "LocalContent" folder must remain untouched.)
  • Delete the "AnthemDemo" folder from the "LocalContent" folder.
  • Press the Windows key and "R" at the same time.
  • Type or copy and paste "%AppData%" (without quotes) into the new window > hit ENTER
  • Now your Windows explorer should have brought you to your "C:\Users\>your user name<\AppData\Roaming" folder.
  • Delete the "Origin"  folder inside the "Roaming" folder.
  • In the address bar of your Windows explorer click on "AppData".
  • Open the "Local" folder.
  • Delete the "Origin"  folder inside the  "Local" folder.
  • Restart your PC. > test
