Anthem’s 1.1.0 update addresses complaints, adds new Stronghold

One of the biggest complaints Anthem had at launch was the relentless loading screens. When it came to changing loadouts and starting missions, you always had to go back to Fort Tarsis to make it happen. Now with the game’s 1.1.0 update, BioWare is slowly chipping away at the tediousness of all the loading screens.

The update now allows players to access The Forge during Missions, Strongholds, and Freeplay, giving them the ability to change their gear and loadout without going back to Fort Tarsis. Players now can also start a new mission from the end of an expedition screen without having to go to Fort Tarsis. In addition, players can also select contracts at the start of an expedition without having to go each contract board.

In addition to the quality of life improvements, update 1.1.0 also brings a new Stronghold titled Sunken Cell, new Universal Masterwork Components, bug fixes, and gameplay balancing. For the full list of patch notes, check out BioWare’s blog post here.
