Patch 1.1.1 for Anthem is live. The patch contains a number of fixes and quality-of-life improvements, as well as a significant gameplay change.

As of this patch, BioWare is removing Elysian Caches from Anthem. These reward crates were originally added to the game back in March. The crates provided players with rewards for completing Strongholds and keeping up to date with daily challenges. Elysian Caches contained cosmetic items and crafting materials, but never armor or weapons. BioWare says Elysian Caches have "always been planned as a temporary thing". The studio isn't ruling out bringing the reward chests back, but they're gone as of yesterday's update. Unfortunately, that means you won't be able to use any remaining Elysian Keys you've acquired.

Here's the rest of the changelog for Anthem patch 1.1.1:

  • Fixed an error where Weapon and Components stat values were not displaying correctly.

  • Fixed a problem where suit power level (rarity) was not correctly being calculated based on equipped items.

  • Fixed an issue with Spanish audio in a conversation in the Sunken Cell stronghold.

  • Fixed an issue with French audio in a conversation in the Sunken Cell stronghold.

  • Fixed an issue causing a slight delay in Salvaging at End of Expedition

  • Partially defeated encounters will no longer re-dispense loot from previously defeated creatures.

  • [PC ONLY] – Right-clicking an item to salvage it at the end of expedition screen now requires the mouse button to be held.

It's not a massively substantial patch excepting the removal of Elysian Caches. The far more significant Patch 1.1.0 dropped back in April, bringing with it a new Stronghold in the form of The Sunken Cell. That patch also brought news that BioWare would be delaying certain Act 1 Calendar features indefinitely. We'll let you know if Elysian Caches make a return to Anthem.
