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.
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.
