EA has announced a new IP being created by BioWare: Anthem.
Anthem is a shared-world action RPG where players dive into a world teeming with amazing technology and forgotten treasures. However, there is a darker side to Anthem, as the world is also filled with savage beasts and ruthless marauders where Freelancers are called to defeat the forces plotting to conquer humanity. Anthem tells a new story where EA, BioWare and Frostbite have together created a social, co-operative experience in an ever-changing and dynamic world.
Up to four friends can band together to unravel Anthem’s mysteries and take on its fearsome challenges. As Freelancers working together, shared danger means shared glory, and those who are successful will be rewarded accordingly. Players will be able to outfit their Freelancers with powerful Javelin exosuits equipped with unique weapons and abilities. With the gear they earn, they can also customise their Javelin through crafting as they adventure.
The teaser trailer shows a set of people, living behind a wall in fear of terrifying creatures. Powerful, booming music highlights the sheer strength afforded by the Javelin exosuits and their importance to mankind’s survival through the hands of the Freelancers.
Anthem is anticipated as a Fall 2018 release for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
