EA Bioware Unveil Anthem

Microsoft unveiled the new IP from EA Bioware to the world, and it’s called Anthem. Anthem is a shared-world action-RPG, where players can delve into a vast world teeming with amazing technology and forgotten treasures. The world is also filled with savage beasts and ruthless marauders where Freelancers are called to defeat the forces plotting to conquer humanity. Watching the trailer at the Xbox Press Conference I got very strong Destiny vibes from this, and I believe this is EA’s way of creating their own Destiny-like title.

“Our developers at BioWare have been creating something special,” said Patrick Soderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Worldwide Studios. “We’re pushing Frostbite to new heights, developing a game unlike anything EA has ever made before. We’re telling a new story, creating a social, co-operative experience, and putting it in a contiguous open world that is dynamic and will be ever-changing for years to come.”

In Anthem, up to four friends can unravel the world’s mysteries and take on its most fearsome challenges together. Shared danger means shared glory, and successful Freelancers will all be richly rewarded for successful exploits. Throughout their adventure, players can outfit their Freelancers with powerful Javelin exosuits, each of which are equipped with unique weapons and abilities. Players can also customize their Javelin with gear they earn and craft throughout the adventure, and leave a lasting mark on the world. No word on release date, or what platforms. The rumor currently is early 2018 on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We’ll find out specifics later this year.
Here’s the trailer:
