The jokes are as well clear – Anthem is a ghost town.

There are no level needs for Anthem’s Season of Skulls occasion, but you will need to have to have completed the Incursion story so you can achieve access to the Echoes of Reality level.
You can choose the Season of Skulls solutions from the Game Modes menu, exactly where you will be dropped in to arenas filled with enemies. The challenge is to climb the leaderboards in the face of modifiers (inversions, as they’re identified in Anthem).
It is these modifiers that will adjust every week and provide distinctive rewards. Carry out nicely by employing your time wisely and exploiting score multipliers and you will full an arena with far more crystals. Crystals can them be made use of to invest in War Chests and other products from Herschel’s Hut, which you will locate in the Fort Tarsis industry.
And if you have unlocked freeplay, you will come across Season of Skulls Anomalies. Once again, these are comparable to Cataclysms’ Storm Gates exactly where you will fight enemies to at some point unlock a showdown with a boss.
Is Season of Skulls adequate to tempt you and your buddies back for a small far more Anthem?
