Anthem Freeplay Caps Your XP Bonuses If You Don’t Return To Fort Tarsis

While playing Anthem, keep track of what you and your team are doing in freeplay mode. The game will cap how much experience you earn for world events, so doing a bunch in a row isn’t in your best interest.

In Anthem, you stop earning experience for completing world events after completing your third in a session. You should be returning to Fort Tarsis on a regular basis regardless in order to turn in your loot, see what you’ve found, level up, and reconfigure your Javelin. However, if you and your friends realize that you’ve been playing long enough in freeplay to complete three events, just head back to Fort Tarsis to reset your counter before continuing to play. That way, you’ll be able to keep gaining the experience bonuses that are unlocked for completing world events.

BioWare has announced what’s coming to Anthem in the three months post-launch. There isn’t much planned for February and March outside of additional freeplay events, new cosmetics, and Legendary missions. However, April sees Anthem getting a new Stronghold called The Sunken, as well as a huge social play update that adds weekly Stronghold challenges, leaderboards, and guilds. In May, the Cataclysm, an event BioWare has long teased will affect Anthem in numerous ways, will begin in the game.

If you’ve picked up Anthem and you’re looking for more tips on how to play–given how little the game actually tells you–be sure to read through our guides. We’ve listed them below.

Anthem Guides

In our Anthem review, Kallie Plagge gave the game a 6/10, writing, “Anthem has good ideas, but it struggles significantly with the execution. It’s a co-op game that works best with no one talking; it buries genuinely interesting character moments and puts its most incomprehensible story bits at the forefront; its combat is exciting until you get to the boss fights and find your wings have been clipped. Even the simple, exhilarating act of flying is frequently interrupted by the limitations of your javelin, and you never quite shake that feeling of disappointment–of knowing, throughout the good parts of Anthem, that you’ll inevitably come crashing back down.”

Fortnite Waterfall Location Guide For Overtime Challenge

We’re in the final stretch of Fortnite Season 7, but before Season 8 officially arrives, developer Epic Games is giving players a slew of Overtime challenges to complete. Much like standard weekly challenges, these task players with different objectives to aim for while you play, from taking down opponents with specific weapons to visiting certain locations around the island, and completing them will net you XP and unlock new cosmetics.

Most of the Overtime challenges are fairly straightforward, so they shouldn’t pose too much of a problem, but there is at least one that may give you some trouble, particularly if you aren’t too familiar with the island: visit seven different waterfalls. This can be fairly difficult if you don’t know where to look, but we’ve put together a map to help you along.

Complete this challenge and you’ll earn 500 XP. More importantly, it’ll put you one step closer to getting Season 8’s Battle Pass for free; in an unexpected move, Epic is giving the pass away to players who finish all of Season 7’s Overtime challenges. Each Battle Pass typically costs 950 V-Bucks (just under $10), so it’s a good idea to complete as many challenges as you can and try to snag the pass without spending any money.

Season 7 of Fortnite is scheduled to end of February 28, so you have until then to complete any remaining challenges. You can see the full list of Overtime challenges here; we also have tips and guides for the trickier objectives in our complete Season 7 challenges roundup, as well as a guide on how to unlock the Prisoner skin variants.

With Season 8 just around the corner now, Epic is holding one more double XP weekend in Fortnite to help players level their Battle Pass up and unlock any remaining rewards, from February 22-24. You can get another look at all of the skins and other cosmetics up for grabs in our Season 7 Battle Pass rewards gallery.

Anthem’s Next 90 Days: Update Roadmap Includes Guilds And New Missions

BioWare has announced what players can expect to come to Anthem in the next 90 days. For the next three months, which BioWare is calling Act 1, Anthem is getting several freeplay events, cosmetics, missions, and quality of life improvements.

For the rest of February, BioWare has three freeplay events planned for Anthem. The first, There Be Giants, is already live and it spawns four uniquely powerful titans in the world for you and your friends to hunt down and destroy. Both Outlaw Outrage and Shaper Surge are also scheduled for this month.

March is when a lot more content starts to drop. Both There Be Giants and Outlaw Outrage will return to freeplay. However, two new events, both unnamed, will premiere as well. March also sees Anthem get the first phase of its Legendary Missions, and new item rewards for completing contracts. The Elysian Stronghold caches will start containing new cosmetics as well, allowing you to customize your Javelin’s look in different ways.

In April, seven new freeplay events come to Anthem, as do even more rewards for you to earn and an expanded progression system. The second phase of Legendary missions come out as well, along with a new Stronghold–titled The Sunken. Social play also gets an update, with weekly stronghold challenges, leaderboards, and guilds getting added to Anthem. More freeplay events, missions, and item rewards are planned for May in Anthem’s biggest planned content drop this year–the Cataclysm. This massive event was first teased in Anthem’s gameplay reveal at E3 2017.

Kingdom Hearts 3 DLC We Want

Kingdom Hearts 3 has now been available for a few weeks, and while many of us are still working our way through Battlegates, the Ultima Weapon quest, or a Flantastic hunt, it’s hard not to look to the future of Square Enix’s action-RPG series. While the ending(s) of Kingdom Hearts 3 leave us plenty to chew on, the sequel also presents a unique opportunity for Square to expand on their franchise-hopping adventure with DLC, a would-be first for the Kingdom Hearts series.
