Anthem player breaks NDA, loses entire Origin library


An Anthem player who decided to break an NDA and livestream the game has paid for his indiscretion with his entire Origin library.

Streamer smokethrone quickly found that he’d lost his entire collection of PC games on Origin after deciding to stream Anthem, which is currently in alpha and being tested by a select few.

As is everything on the internet, smokethrone’s grief was captured for all to watch, so have at it.

While not addressing this situation directly, BioWare’s Mark Darrah, Executive Producer of Anthem, took to Twitter to remind people they’re under said NDA.

“So. The Alpha’s on. And I’m seeing some chatter about connectivity issues to the servers,” Darrah wrote. “[Two] things: 1. This is one of the primary purposes of the test. 2. You are actually in violation of your NDA if you are publicly discussing issues you are having.”

If you’re lucky enough to be playing Anthem right now, remember it’s a privilege and not a right. If you’re not, don’t forget that a demo is on the way, either in late January or early February depending on your pre-order status (or lack thereof).

Anthem heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 22 February 2019.
