EA and BioWare’s Anthem didn’t precisely have the greatest launch of all time when it released earlier this year. The hugely-anticipated on the net multiplayer came with a bunch of bugs, a lot of server troubles and a tonne of p*ssed off players.
At the time of release, it was reported that lots of folks attempted to get their copies of the game refunded, devoid of significantly joy.
Even so, new claims have arisen that recommend Amazon has refunded an Anthem player on the grounds of “false advertisement and fraud,” – at least according to the player.
Writing on Anthem‘s subreddit, a user by the name of lastKryptonian1991 shared their story of the refund – which includes a supposed transcript from their conversation with Amazon.
“I do not see why I am not entitled to get my revenue back on a item that was wrongly advertised. Due to the fact that is what occur, and I assume what folks will need to realise is that this is no compact matter, what Bioware and in the end EA did is illegal,” writes the player.
“They advertised the item with an attached roadmap and now that ‘promise’ has been broken. You can make any argument about the state of the game, but you Cannot deny this particular point.
“So I was rather prepared to fight for my revenue, but was pleasantly shocked with the Amazon buyer service, since they clearly knew what’s up.
“I got a Complete refund just yesterday Apr 30th and I am shipping the game back now. That is proper. And I urge folks that are not content with the game to refund it no matter how extended you played it, since what these businesses have performed is, devoid of a doubt, fraud.”
The post was later updated to incorporate the supposed transcript of the conversation with the Amazon employee.
The transcript says that not only did the player get their revenue back, but that they also got it in advance of them sending the game back.
Earlier in the year, several outlets had been refusing the return of Anthem. Perhaps it is worth attempting once again?
