Understandably, the players encountering these issues aren't keen on risking the health of a gaming console worth several hundred dollars. Bioware has yet to fix the bug that's causing these shutdowns, and at the moment it haven't responded to people's complaints at all.

It's unclear just how widespread these issues are and if Anthem is the direct cause of all problems being talked about.

However, some PlayStation 4 players have reported that Sony is offering a complete refund for those affected by crashing issues.

Some players are also reporting getting refunds for their copies of Anthem, having run into issues.

Let's hope Bioware roll out a fix soon, otherwise Anthem's notorious reputation is going to suffer another hit. Not only has the game received a disinterested response from critics, it has also been criticized for the high price of buying shards for vanity items, the long loading times, the repetitive grind, and the server crashing problems. "Took me 5 minutes", said redditor u/SoundAndFury87.

Forbes video games journalist Paul Tassi, who recently reviewed Anthem on Xbox One X, said that he experienced similar shut down issues while playing the game on Microsoft's console.

Anthem is out now for PS4, Xbox and PC. In addition, this issue strictly relates to the PlayStation 4, and the circumstances on other platforms may be different.

A portion of the users have reported that they had their Anthem refund successfully processed after contacting Sony customer support.

"It is the same as if someone pulled the plug without properly shutting the hardware down or if the power went out in the house". That's what these kind of games do - come out not where they should be, receive a load of post-release content, and turn out fantastic. Refunds have since been verified by other players and publications. "We're investigating and ask that you share your crash data reports when prompted".
