Sony Offering Refunds for Anthem PS4 Owners

Anthem Titan Battle

Anthem Titan Battle

Dozens of Anthem players say the game is crashing their PS4 consoles in various ways, preventing normal startup and in rare instances actually breaking their systems. There are even some users who are reporting that they are dealing with Anthem bricking PS4 consoles. Unsurprisingly, those whose consoles are now expensive paperweights are advising people not to play the game.

There's now a topic on EA's official forum asking PS4 players that have experienced a hard crash to share information on their console and play session just before the crash occurred.

It's the latest issue for "Anthem", a highly-anticipated blockbuster game from EA's BioWare studio that's been beset by complaints from critics and fans alike since its confusing launch in mid February.

Things are apparently not going so well for Anthem, BioWare's new online RPG released last month on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Have you reported your crash data when prompted? As such, it seems that some players have been attempting to get refunds on their purchases.

"It is the same as if someone pulled the plug without properly shutting the hardware down or if the power went out in the house". Have you attempted to get a refund and were you successful? "Coming off our Early Access period, we understand that we have lots of work ahead of us to continue to improve the game", Head of Live Service Chad Robertson wrote in a blog post announcing the Anthem update road map for the game's first three months. For more serious issues such as the console crashes, it is suggested players contact EA Help. However, some players have reported that they've gotten booted to the PS4 dashboard or - even worse - that their console has locked up completely after a crash.

Now, Sony is notoriously strict when it comes to player refunds. Not only has the game received a disinterested response from critics, it has also been criticized for the high price of buying shards for vanity items, the long loading times, the repetitive grind, and the server crashing problems.
