Anthem Release Date and New E3 Gameplay

Today dur­ing EAPlay, Mass Effect and Drag­on Age devel­op­er Bioware showed off some more of their upcom­ing Sci­Fi Co-op/RPG Anthem. Com­ing Feb­ru­ary 22nd 2019, Anthem is a online co-op mul­ti­play­er RPG set in an open word that can be played solo or online with up to 4 play­ers. Play­ers take on the role of a Free­lancer. A Free­lancers are peo­ple who go out­side the walls of Fort Tar­sis to help safe­guard human­i­ty and explore. Free­lancers use exo suits called Javelins to pro­tect and aid them while out in the world.

There are 4 types of Javelin

  • Ranger – a ver­sa­tile, all-pur­pose Javelin suit­able for var­i­ous tasks.
  • Colos­sus – a tank­ing pow­er­house lend­ing itself to strength-ori­ent­ed close combat.
  • Inter­cep­tor – the speed­i­est of the four Javelins.
  • Storm – a cast­er-type Javelin.

Each of the Javelin suits can be cus­tomized so they can look and pre­form how you want them to. Anthem will not fea­ture loot box­es. Cos­met­ics can be bought direct­ly so you will always know what you’re buy­ing, no randomness.

You can check out the Javelins in action in the game play from today’s EAPlay E3 show­case in the video embed­ded below.
