  • An open-world action RPG from BioWare and Electronic Arts and one of the most anticipated new games of 2018, enjoyed the spotlight when it debuted at E3 2017. Not only was it the first big AAA reveal of the show, but it was trumpeted at both the EA and Microsoft press conferences as the hot new thing vying to become your next MMO-shooter obsession. At first glance, the obvious comparison to make is that Anthem is aiming to be a cross between Destiny and Mass Effect - but a closer look reveals shades of Halo and Far Cry as well. Here’s a comprehensive breakdown of everything you need to know about Anthem, as we take a magnifying glass to every trailer and relevant Tweet to get a clearer picture of BioWare’s ambitious new universe.

Whooooo! The new Destiny!


#3

Did their marketing team try to say it was Destiny, Mass Effect, Halo, and Far Cry in one game? Reaching much?


#4

Games like this and other 4 player co-ops would be good to maybe get the 4way mixer streams going.

I think that’s a quote from Games Radar.

No PVP, but they’ll consider it in the future? Not sure this will be a day one for me.

Bioware is staking the future of their company on this game and they better get it right. It’s been sad to see such a storied and accomplished studio slide down into the dregs these last few years-here’s to hoping they make a comeback with a bang and get back to their roots of making fantastic games.

I’ve got high hopes. Every time I see footage I salivate. I like the idea of the character leveling up instead of each individual suit. I want to try them all, however the colossus will probably be my main.


#15

I am thinking Ranger Class here

Gears of War + Iron Man + Destiny = Anthem

Cannot wait!!


#19

I love the idea and it looks beautiful, but that game play looks slow and boring.
I’m hoping that they are deliberately keeping expectations low.
