The highlight of EA’s conference came from Bioware’s Anthem. EA devoted a “deep dive” into the upcoming release, meaning a ton of news was given. For those looking for a full recap of the presentation, it can be found here.

New Anthem Details Revealed

First, we got a new gameplay trailer for the game. This gave a closer look at the four javelins: Colossus, Ranger, Interceptor, and Storm. These four classes will also be able to be customizable, which included an N7 set of armor. It also showed off the various ways in which multiplayer can be used. The trailer ended just as the group was to face off against a giant boss.

The world of Tarsus is planned to be dynamic, which means it will constantly be changing and of course, open. New DLC and Expansions will be available post-launch. Anthem will be featured as a service meaning there is going to be in-game purchases, but there won’t be any microtransactions or any pay-to-play mechanics.

Another interesting feature revealed is that there is fall damage. So players will have to use their jetpacks sparingly. The game can be played in co-op but it is not essential. The story can be played perfectly fine in solo mode. The co-op section is balanced. The hub world will be viewed in first-person while the gameplay is set in third-person.

The release date was given towards the end of the presentation. It will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on February 22, 2019.
