Anthem game players will be getting a big patch today that makes some welcome changes to the PS4, Xbox One and PC game.

The upcoming Anthem patch will remove respawn restrictions as well as offer loot changes and audio improvements.

One of the biggest changes coming with the Anthem game patch is improved stability for all platforms.

The new Anthem updates are coming ahead of the release of patch 1.06 on Tuesday, which will bring with it a fix for the PS4 crashing issues.

The news of next week’s big patch was revealed on Twitter by BioWare’s live service boss Chad Robertson.

Robertson said: “UPDATE: We’ve identified several causes for the temp power-down crash some PS4 users experienced.

“Fixes for the top issues are in patch next week.

“If you encounter a game crash where your PS4 console won’t respond, you can manually power down and restart it – no risk of damage.”
