First Anthem gameplay trailer released

On June 12, 2017 by Ash Meehan

Following Anthem’s announcement during EA’s E3 2017 conference, more details, including a gameplay trailer was released during the Xbox E3 2017 briefing.

From the above gameplay trailer, Bioware’s Anthem looks like it is setting itself up to be similar to Bungie’s Destiny and Ubisoft’s The Division, by that I mean Anthem is also a looter shooter.

In terms of story, you are a Freelancer, who is tasked with taking on missions beyond the wall that protects humanity from a vast and hostile world you call home. To survive outside the wall you are equipped with a customisable exoskeleton called a Javelin. You can customise the appearance, loadout and roles of your Javelin.

To make the world feel more alive, Bioware will allow you to team with up to four other players in an effort to complete quests and take down powerful enemies. In a press release, Patrick Soderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Worldwide Studios had the following to say regarding Anthem, “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.”

Anthem will be released in 2018, for Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
