Anthem Shards Price Canada

February 18, 2019 at 8:43pm

Anthem is set to release on February 22, 2019, and like most games it will launch with a form of extra content called microtransactions. In this game they are called “Shards”, they arrive in packs and will allow you to purchase in-game items. At launch it appears that they will just be an optional purchase as in-game items will also be purchasable with earned currency as well.

It also seems that this will be limited to cosmetic items such as color, texture of other styles for your Javelin suit. The Javelin is what you wear during all missions of the game, it offers high levels of customization for the smallest of details on it. This can all be edited within the game’s Forge area. You unlock enhancements by playing missions, but the visual look will need to be tweaked using default settings, or through the purchase of special items with the in-game currency or these shards.
