Earlier this week, at the Xbox E3 2017 Briefing, we had the opportunity to show footage from an exciting new game from Electronic Arts for the very first time. Anthem, a brand-new IP being created by BioWare, is a shared-world action-RPG, in which 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, with Freelancers called in to defeat the forces plotting to conquer humanity.
“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 be richly rewarded for successful endeavors. 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.
Be sure to watch the video above for a much better look at this exciting new title. You can be sure that we’ll be bringing you more on Anthem whenever we can!
