Some players are reporting that they thought their console has been bricked and then were able to run it in Safe Mode and rebuild the corrupted areas. 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. Numerous gamers suffered from crashes that just cause an annoying push out of the game on both PS4 and PS4 Pro, but a few select issues are concerning. According to multiple reports, Sony is issuing refunds for those who bought Anthem on the PS4 digitally via the PS Store.

Many reported that Sony had given refunds for digital versions of Anthem with "no questions asked" when users had complained and mentioned the system crash.
