Anthem is now only 10 quid

But the song remains the same.

BioWare's spluttering shooter Anthem is now just 10 on PS4 and Xbox One.

The ailing RPG had aims of being the next Destiny or The Division but never managed to take off. A disastrous launch saw the game floundering from the very start amidst poor reviews and, in the months that followed, any efforts that were intended to improve Anthem's situation seemed either too little or too late.

Is it worth a go for a tenner? Maybe. Even if you just decide to zip through the campaign you're probably going to feel like you've got your money's worth. There are a few satisfying moments to be found in Anthem, too, whether it's soaring through the rich and detailed environments or dabbling with some of the Javelin suit's power to make combat more exciting.

Just don't go in expecting an engrossing story or some of the developer's finest character work. And if it goes grab you, the original post-launch content plans have now been ditched, so the future there is unclear.

If you've got ten quid lying around and are looking to spend that somewhere else instead, you should definitely take a look at this month's Humble Monthly Bundle. You can get the Crash N Sane Trilogy, Spyro Reignited and Call of Duty: WW2 for that price. It's incredible value in a single bundle - and that's without the bonus games to come!

You can find even more of the latest gaming and tech offers over at Jelly Deals. We've got the best price for PS Plus, where you can get Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for cheap and our picks for the best PS4 external hard drives.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
