Anthem patch 1.2.1 released, improves matchmaking, features UI, Cosmetic & Combat fixes

Electronic Arts and Bioware have released a new patch for their online looter shooter, Anthem. According to the release notes, this patch fixes a bug that would sometimes cause characters and enemies to appear frozen after the frozen effect had worn off.

Moreover, update 1.2.1 comes with some matchmaking improvements. Bioware has made some additional improvements to our matchmaking experience by enabling longer timers for players to match into a squad, while also fixing a bug from a previous update that forced some players to matchmake for longer than intended.

In addition, this patch resolves various minor UI bugs, fixes an issue where the mouse cursor would disappear on specific instances when going into the Forge, as well as a number of bugs that prevented select cosmetic items from being presented correctly in Prospero’s store and/or the Forge.

As always, Origin will download this latest patch the next time you launch its client, and you can find its complete changelog below.
