Anthem at E3 2018: major details and new gameplay footage revealed

Anthem at E3 2018: major details and new gameplay footage revealed

BioWare's Casey Hudson, Mark Darrah, and Cathleen Rootsaert provided more details regarding the story and mechanics of Anthem. Not quite like an MMO game or a Multiplayer game, but a deeper shared world. The rub with E3's conference for those hoping for something new is that all of the big games were already known. Hinting that players will be put in the shoes of a Sith, the game will be set while the Jedi are being hunted.

On top off this came the news that the game will include no loot boxes, no premium pass and all content updates will be free for everyone.

While the game was designed from the ground up as a four-player co-op, the devs confirmed players would be able to play through the game solo. These exosuits, called Javelins, will be available in four different varieties suited to different playstyles, and users will be able to cycle between them at will. That means BioWare can use this space to tell your story without dancing interruptions, and it can also more powerfully reflect the consequences of your decisions. "And we're really excited by the way the new Battlefield is shaping up". The new heroes including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and General Grievous.

The game can be played alone if you like, but looks like it is clearly designed with two players in mind. Be sure to check it out and then let us know your own thoughts on Anthem, Battlefield V, and EA's showing as a whole at the bottom of the page.

This Indie game Sea of Solitude, which has been in development for the past three years, got a new trailer at E3. While the specifics of the gameplay have yet to be ironed out, it looks to be a sea-based game telling an emotional story about how loneliness can turn people into monsters. The game will serve as Bioware's answer to Bungie's Destiny, promising a huge world to explore with RPG elements and cooperative play.

Anthem, the next game from developers Bioware, is coming out on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on the 22nd of February, 2019.

PvP - Anthem will not include player versus player multiplayer at launch, but they may add it later. It probably doesn't make too much sense to launch Anthem right by it.
