Anthem‘s upcoming demo will be the final glimpse potential fans will have of BioWare’s new game before the game is released next month, and here’s how to download it.

The demo client can be accessed right now and it will be available to play for all gamers between February 1-3, unlike the issue plagued version which was exclusive to those with EA Access, Origin Access or had already pre-ordered Anthem. 

With the tumultuous ‘VIP’ weekend behind them, BioWare have identified the areas where the game has to be improved before launch day and fans will be wanting to see a more complete experience this time out. 

BioWareBioWare has already given us a glimpse of what’s to come in Anthem with gameplay livestreams.

The demo is available for pre-load on Anthem’s store page for those looking to play it on PC, Xbox players can use the Microsoft store and PS4 gamers will find it in the PlayStation store. 

The Anthem demo is going to be a pretty hefty download, though, taking up around 44GB on PC and 26GB on both Xbox One and PS4. 

We have already seen a large portion of what the game has to offer so far, whether that be the exciting gameplay livestreams hosted by BioWare in recent weeks or the VIP demo, but there’s still clearly a lot more to come from the futuristic multiplayer game in terms of its story. 

The most recent gameplay trailer gave us a better understanding of not only the story of this new world, but the part we will play as that unravels. 

With Anthem set to be released on February 22, this demo is going to be the last chance BioWare has to convince potential players to go out and buy their new game. Can they pull it off?

Fortnite Season 5 is into Week 6 now, meaning we’ve got a whole new set of challenges to get through. Here’s how you can quickly signal the Coral Buddies for some free XP.

As with each passing week in Fortnite, new challenges means new XP to earn. They’re often the best way to grind through your Battle Pass, providing far more experience than anything else in the game.

With eight tasks to get through this week, most are fairly straightforward. Deal some damage, destroy some vehicles, and catch some fish. You should be able to knock most of these out fairly quickly with our weekly guide.

Though one particular challenge stands out from the rest. ‘Signal the Coral Buddies’ is something entirely new. What does it mean? Where do you need to go? Well, we’ve got the answers so you can tick this one off in no time.

Here’s the exact location where you can signal the Coral Buddies in Fortnite Season 5.

First up, you’re going to want to drop into a typically quiet location. The Coral Castle POI is where this weekly challenge is located, so expect it to be far busier than usual for the next few days.

Once you’ve landed safely, there’s no need to worry about looting and getting equipment. All you need to do to complete this task is interact with some objects nearby,

Heading towards an elevated hut on the northern side of the area will lead you to six bright red Conch shells. Surprisingly enough, you can engage with these shells with the press of a button.

Interacting with all six from left to right should signal the Coral Buddies and complete the challenge. Though there might be a unique order to tap them in once the objective goes live. We’ll be sure to update this guide if that’s the case.

There will be six Conch shells for you to interact with when you arrive.

So there you have it. In just a few minutes you can quickly drop into a match, engage with the Conch shells, and have a good chunk of XP added to your account.

Every other challenge can be knocked out fairly quickly this week. So be sure to get them all done if you’re looking to max out your Battle Pass in Season 5.
