EA Announces Release Date for Anthem

EA Announces Release Date for Anthem

EA's E3 press conference on Saturday ended with a big, Anthem-loaded bang.

This is something else that could be discussed during the EA Play event, and might even be one of the big reveals of the day.

Anthem also marks the return of Casey Hudson, formerly the director of the Mass Effect trilogy, to Bioware, and his imprint seems to be evident on the game's development. You will be able to play solo, but things will be more hard that way since you'll have no back-up.

After years of shifting release windows, EA has given Anthem an official release date: February 22, 2019. So yeah, while there won't be any loot boxes, there will be micro-transactions.

What are you looking forward to from Electronic Arts?

That was followed by a surprise and rapid diplomatic thaw that survived Trump's abrupt cancellation of the summit late last month. But the hard truth of the matter is that Trump and Kim, by necessity, must talk about North Korea's human rights record .

Probably our favourite from EA Play, Sea of Solitude is about a girl who gets turned into a monster and must find a cure.

We'll have to see if the game can accomplish that sort of long life, but EA is doing what it can to ensure it is appealing before it launches.

"Regardless of how it's being portrayed, we're not look at that as a delay, we've chosen to launch Anthem in [the fourth quarter]". Developer DICE also promised the game would get its own battle royale mode with the Battlefield twist - including destructible environments that can be wrecked by the game's war vehicles. BioWare has traditionally specialized in single-player RPGs like Mass Effect and Dragon Age, so an online-first experience is a departure - but the company is promising to focus on story-drive content. Players will be able to change up aspects of their suit that are chosen for missions. There will be paid cosmetics, in addition to other options to customize your Javelin. But we're finding it doesn't really look like the kind of BioWare we've come to know - no alien flirting or tough narrative choices here.

Anthem When Destiny coined the term "shared-world shooter", it was basically the only game in town. This has led to a tumultuous world with violent storms and colossal mutated creatures for the player to survive.
