COMING FEBRUARY 22 TO PC, XBOX ONE, AND PS4
From the studio that created Mass Effect and Dragon Age comes a new world full of mystery and danger: Anthem. It’s been a year since Anthem was unveiled at the Xbox E3 Briefing in 2017, and now it’s back with a better look at the intriguing gameplay.
Since last year, we’ve been waiting for details to emerge on the new shared-world shooter from Electronic Arts, Anthem. Well, Bioware took over the e3 stage for EA Play Saturday afternoon, as they showcased a new trailer. While the show ended, developers of the title stayed around on stage, as fans weren’t treated to gameplay or even a release date – at first.
Luckily, they formally announced that Anthem would be arriving February 22nd to consoles and PC (week earlier for Origin Access Premier subscribers). Surprisingly, they even took a shot at Bungie’s Destiny 2 release of last year, which Anthem will be looking to avoid lootbox controversy many have were frustrated with. EA ensured Anthem would provided in-game purchases, which they’ve also learned from DICE (see: Star Wars: Battlefront II) for charging users on goodies.
