The Anthem Cataclysm infinite loading screen bug is exactly what it sounds like. You load up the game, having completed the main campaign, and want to dive into the Cataclysm endgame event. That’s what you’d like to do anyway, but you can’t. You’ll load up one screen perfectly, but once you hit the second loading screen, the loading bar either won’t move or it’ll be stuck at around the 20% mark.

Right, onto the fix for this glaring problem. Some players have had success by uninstalling and reinstalling the 1.30 patch. This update is the one that brings the Cataclysm to the game, but installing it first time around can cause issues. As noted by other players, if you remove it and then install it again, it should start working again.

We should point out that it isn’t a 100% guaranteed fix though. Some users have stated that despite trying this method, the loading screen issue remains. If it doesn’t work for you, your best bet is to contact EA Help and file a ticket with them. Hopefully, if enough players complain, the developers will look into it if they aren’t already.
