The early steps into Anthem's future were laid out in a "gameplay calendar" breaking down the first act, Echos of Reality. It's broken into three distinct updates that promise new events, quality of life updates, new rewards, and expanded progression system, a new Stronghold, Guilds and Leaderboards, new missions, and what they're calling "The Cataclysm".

Anthem is a new shared-world action-RPG from EA's BioWare studio where players can team up with friends as Freelancers - the bold few with the courage to leave civilization behind and explore a landscape of primeval beauty, confront the dangers you find and grow in power with every step. They are seasonal activities, not one-shot endgame missions.

The first details on Anthem's post-launch and endgame content have been revealed. A full breakdown is available on the official Anthem Endgame site.

Strongholds represent some of the longest and most hard challenges in Anthem, and players will need to assemble a team to tackle them. He described them as "content that you engage with for weeks", which would come out less frequently than new challenges, events, and strongholds.

The video also teases that you can do freeplay in the end-game. Then, Grandmaster 1, Grandmaster 2, and Grandmaster 3 difficulties can be accessed.

Anthem will feature six levels of difficulty, three of which unlock only in the post game. Different endgame objectives will reward you with crafting blueprints for gear and personalization items, while others reward you with the crafting materials and coin necessary to fashion those schematics into complete items. Improving your reputation with different groups will give you access to crafting blueprints.

The Cataclysm is described as "a world-changing, time-limited event" that will bring extreme weather, risky new enemies and new mysteries to get to the bottom of in Anthem's world.
