EA has released details of Anthem’s new event, Season of Skulls. Coming out of the storm-filled Cataclysm, Season of Skulls is about defeating waves of enemies for Crystals, whether through the arenas that’ll be dotted around the map or the ‘Anomalies’ that litter the land as you explore.
It’s fair to say BioWare’s Anthem has had more than its fair share of problems – including publisher EA outright admitting that the game “wasn’t working” – and the Cataclysm event didn’t do much to change its fortunes. Nevertheless, players who stuck with Anthem during the Echoes of Reality season were rewarded with lots of new loot to pick up – most of which you had to pay for with a special event-only currency called Crystals.
Ben Irving has announced that he’s stepping down from his role at BioWare to work at another game company. Irving had been with BioWare for over eight years, and served as lead producer on Star Wars: The Old Republic starting in 2015, before he moved onto Anthem in April 2017.
