Anthem Stuck loading

★★★★ Novice


Anthem gets stuck loading



Game gets stuck around 70-90% once past the initial screen after selecting subtitle options etc



I have tried running windowed,borderless,fullscreen.

I have tried running my game as administrator and different compatibility settings but game still gets stuck.

I have run a repair game and verify option in the Origin Client.


This is beyond frustrating as am Origin basic customer with a pre order and its eating away at my ten hour playtime



Windows 10, i5 6500,16gb Ram,Gtx 1080

It worked!!

Not sure what exactly did it, but I set run as administrator on origin.exe, originclientservices.exe, Anthem.exe, anthemtrial.exe and did all the reset dns stuff.

Only downloaded 43% but game gets past the initial loading screen and i see the intro. Hope you get it working!!

did you have same issue with the demo weekend? Or do you still have the demo installed? 


I had no load issues on demo weekend (did crash a few times though). I also installed the game while I still had the demo installed. Tried deleting the demo folder and running update and repair on the game but that didn't do anything.

I tried these things but it didn't work. Drivers are updated. Uninstalled the game and giving it a last try by installing it again. Gotta wait an hour now.
