Today’s Anthem update version 1.50 is out, and brings a host of new changes to the game that players have been eager to see since the Cataclysm ended. The biggest new addition with this update is a new season, Season of Skulls. The season adds some brand new Freeplay content to the game, and even a boss which can be encountered after completing three of the new Freeplay events. What other secrets lie within the update remain to be seen.

Check out the patch notes below.

New Features

  • The Cataclysm is back with updates for the Season of Skulls. The higher your score, the more seasonal currency you’ll be awarded to spend at the seasonal store.
  • New Season of Skulls Freeplay events. Successfully finish three of these events in one Freeplay session to spawn a boss encounter.
  • Learn more about Season of Skulls lore through a scavenger hunt and new data archives.
  • Mass Salvage is now available on all inventory management screens.
  • The Legendary drop rate and price of war chests has increased 250%
