Anthem’s closed alpha starts next weekend - here’s how to get in

Casey Hudson, BioWare's general manager, wrote on the company's official blog that the studio was working on some "secret Dragon Age stuff".

BioWare is preparing for a new Dragon Age announcement.

Furthermore, Bioware has revealed the game's graphics options in its recent livestream for this beta build. PC gamers will be able to adjust the quality of Anti-Aliasing, Ambient Occlusion, Textures, Texture Filtering, Mesh, Lighting, Effects, Post-Processing, Terrain and Vegetation. Hudson reiterated that "Dragon Age is an incredibly important franchise" for Bioware, adding that we should expect some news on that front in December. The show's host and creator, Geoff Keighley, has already revealed that there will be over 10 new games announced during the event.

Hudson has been teasing some secret Dragon Age stuff for some time now, but it looks as though fans we'll finally find out just what it is next month.

The test sessions will run next weekend, on December 8th and 9th, though Executive Producer Mark Darrah clarified on Twitter that there won't be a huge number of spots available since this Anthem Alpha is a technical test first and foremost. The Game Awards kicks off on the 6th of December, so we don't have long left to wait.

Earlier this year, Hudson tweeted that the next Dragon Age game would focus on story and character.

What do you think about this news? Are any of you looking forward to The Game Awards next week? Hudson added, "It's a tradition at BioWare. It's scary and exciting to work on something on this scale and complexity, but we're doing everything we can to make sure it's an awesome experience for you".
