What is anthem? The new upcoming IP of BioWare seems to be a change for the creators of Dragon Age and Mass Effect, with a focus on cooperative PvE battles popularized by Destiny.
It was a big surprise when it was first announced at last year's E3 2017, and as pressure on a game that could affect or break the development of the developer increases, BioWare has its cards close to its chest held.
short trailer shown on EA Play Keynote, we got a glimpse into the game world: the only thing that distinguishes the civilized world from dangerous and wild animals. Flying exosuits ("javelin") also seem to play a major role in wilderness survival, and a player could jump into it as part of the game.
BioWare describes Anthem as "a new game from EA's BioWare studio. [where you] explore a landscape of ancient beauty, face the dangers you encounter, and grow in strength with each step."
It's the first game BioWare has unveiled since its polarizing Mass Effect Andromeda, built on BioWare's legacy of great science fiction games.
[ Update: In Anthem stands the N7 armor of Mass Effect .]

E3 2018 brought a brand new movie trailer for Anthem, featuring the incredible exosuits in action, with smooth flights and a look at the nature of enemies, me I will record it with your team.
You'll also get a first look at the Scars, an insect-like race that will fight you across the game world – although we've also heard from another warlike faction called Dominion should pose a significant threat to itself.
For those who are worried about the somewhat generic "Mech Suit" design in the trailer, there is supposedly plenty of room for adjustments and cosmetic upgrades (fortunately, no loot boxes). 
Anthem Release Date
When first announced at E3 2017, Anthem was scheduled for release in the fall of 2018 … but then the game was delayed.
We Now Have a New, Accurate Date: February 22, 2019. Release Date c According to a report by Kotaku, it has been announced that the game will be delayed until the beginning of 2019, with three sources close to the project mentioned.
The report now states that BioWare feels that the future of the company is linked to Anthem and its success. For this reason, work on the other titles of the studio, Star Wars: The Old Republic and the next Dragon Age, will now be done by much smaller teams.
It is unlikely that the EA will delay the development game later than March 2019, as the company's fiscal year ends.
News and Rumors
The public pre-launch demo of Anthem will only be available on February 1st for those who pre-order the song or members of Origin or EA Access are.
Commander Shepard will live on
. To celebrate the N7 day (the unofficial Mass Effect holiday). The producer of Anthem and Mass Effect, Michael Gamble tweeted a picture of N7 armor worn at the Fort Tarsis Center.
However, Gamble did not disclose details of when or how this skin will be made available to players.
It will support 3D audio
About the PlayStation Platinum Headset.
It will be a graphically challenging game.
As mentioned in previous rumors (below), Anthem was shown at this year's E3, and it was a stunning-looking game that ran at 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. That's all very impressive, but what kind of machine do you need to play anthem at this graphical level?
According to Mark Darrah, the executive producer of the game, the E3 demo ran on a PC with two Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards. While we expect Anthem to be optimized before release, we still expect you to need a powerful PC to play at 4K and 60FPS. EA has not confirmed whether the Xbox One X or PS4 Pro can do it justice.
EA Play has given us the best view of Anthem we have ever had. We've learned that EA's game is considered "the evolution of a bioware game" that does not fix story content in a multiplayer game, but unites those things in a common world. It's a bit different from the normal BioWare fare, as it apparently does not have player bombs.
You play as a "freelancer" who can control the exosuits you've seen, and you must protect the people of Tarthis from a power that tries to control the anvil of creation. The world is constantly being transformed and because you are a pilot, you can change your clothes according to your mission. Exosuit types include Ranger, Colossus, Storm and Interceptor.
We've learned that the game does not have prey boxes and instead will be an online world that keeps adding more and more stories over time. The prerequisite for this, however, is that the game is not playable offline. After the show, Mark Darrah confirmed on Twitter that "you have to be online to play," adding that there will be no PvP modes at launch, if they're even considered, da He added that this can not be guaranteed.
Darrah also responded to fan's online inquiries, saying that players could create multiple freelancers for each user account and use all four exosuits
It will have a great focus on history
. According to Mass Effect Andromeda, Anthems developer BioWare promised a great story for Anthem shortly before the expectations of the fans. In a blog post the director-general of the studio, Casey Hudson, emphasized the importance of the world, character and storytelling, promising that they would be part of Anthem, a game that created a whole new world of history should and character that you can experience in a continuous series of adventures with friends. "
Hudson goes on to say that although it will be different than" anything you've ever played, "when done as planned, it still feels" very clearly BioWare "- and it will Blog continues to use to update the fans about the development process of the game.
Our World, My History
One of the constant contradictions of Anthem's development is the idea of & # 39; our world, For players, this means sharing your time between the outside world – a shared multiplayer environment in which you'll join forces with other freelancers to explore and fight – and Fort Tarsis, where you'll get one for you Create a unique single-player experience.
Fort Tarsis will act as a hub for your own decisions and actions, accepting contracts and missions, platonic relationships and generally play more of the role-play games expected of BioWare's usual IPs. The sounds of the outside world affect the individual experiences that you have made in the fortress, even if it turns out how it affects you.
EA meets his fate in Anthem
The premise we know so far is that humanity is trapped in a bastion cut off from the outside world. Apparently it takes a tank suit to fend off the wilderness of the Pandora-like planet.
EA describes it as an "action world-class action role-playing game" in which freelancers question the wilderness beyond the wall, exploring a vast world of savage beasts and ruthless plunderers, but also full of amazing technology and forgotten treasures. " Destiny sounds, are not you crazy?
"Players will be able to sit down with their friends to unravel the secrets of the world and defeat the forces that plan to conquer mankind."
"Throughout their journey, players can equip their freelancers with powerful Javelin exosuits, each equipped with unique weapons and abilities. Freelancers can customize their javelin with the equipment they deserve during the adventure, leaving a lasting impression on the world. "
Of course, the word freelancer sounds more like a Borderlands game than Destiny, but considering your class Depending on which spear you are on, we still see Destiny.
When Anthem was first announced, Destiny 2 seemed like a big challenge, but now that Destiny 2 seems to have some growing pains, it can Anthem may take a dissatisfied player base.
Life after Andromeda
The anthem will be BioWare's first title after the somewhat polarizing Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Anthem apparently becomes a science-fantasy game more akin to Star Wars and Marvel Universe offerings than a fierce science-fiction title like Mass Effect BioWar e, General Manager of Edmonton, Aaryn Flynn, has revealed An interview with CBC Flynn recently said that like these franchises Anthem will be a game in which "many amazing things happen, but we do not worry too much about why they take place or how they happen, the science of it. "
BioWare has dove into the science-fantasy genre with titles like RPG Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and the online multiplayer Star Wars: The Old Republic game, and 'much more about it, just fun to have in a game world that's really lush and exotic and really gets you involved. " Unlike Mass Effect, Flynn thought it was "more of a hardcore hardcore science fiction IP."
Taking this fact into consideration The game offers more online multiplayer passions, and it seems BioWare will certainly try to get into a space that is currently dominated by games like Destiny. It's going to be exciting to see what a developer with so much storytelling experience for single players can bring to the genre.
