E3 News: More Details on EA's Anthem
Looks like Destiny may have a bit of competition, but it wont be coming until 2019. EA revealed that Anthem, a brand-new IP from BioWare’s renowned team, will launch on Feb 22, 2019. It is said to be a social, connected Action-RPG with cooperative multiplayer at its heart. Players customize an array of powered Javelin exosuits and team up to face a dangerous and ever-changing world through exploration and combat.
Up to four players explore and battle in a dangerous, mysterious place populated by great characters and a unique BioWare story. Players will also create stories of their own while they play, so no two journeys are the same. Javelin exosuits make their pilots powerful heroes in the world, with awesome weapons and incredible special abilities that allow for combat and exploration in a hostile environment. Players will be able to customize and personalize their suits with unique paint jobs and gear so they’ll have the right tools to confront almost any situation, and look good doing it.
Those who may want to, can now pre-order the game. And those that take the pre-order plunge will receive VIP demo access and a unique in-game Founders banner. As of writing this, there are two options:
- Fans who pre-order the Anthem standard edition will also receive a legendary weapon and the Legion of Dawn Armor Pack for the Ranger Javelin as part of their pre-order content.
- Fans who purchase the Legion of Dawn Edition of Anthem for pre-order or after launch will also receive the full set of Legion of Dawn Armor Packs (including the Ranger Javelin Legion of Dawn Armor Pack), a Ranger Javelin gear attachment, the digital soundtrack and more.
We know at least one of our staffers who loves PvE games that is quite excited, and we hope some of you are too.
