Anthem at EA Play 2018

Javelin exosuits make their pilots powerful heroes in the world, with awesome weapons and incredible special abilities that allow for combat and exploration in a hostile environment. Community response to EA's decision resulted in the publisher backtracking on the extent to which additional paid add-ons would affect the player's experience in "Battlefront II" and future titles.

Moreover, EA stated that the game will not feature any loot boxes. With a release date of February 22nd 2019 confirmed for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, we got both a longer look at Anthem's gameplay and a proper explanation of the game from key players at Bioware. There are four different javelins - ranger, colossus, interceptor and storm - and players are free to switch between them before missions.

According to, EA and BioWare have announced the official Anthem release date! Bioware are a beloved developer but their last project, Mass Effect Andromeda, wasn't successful or popular, and new mechanics in Anthem like a multiplayer open world haven't gone down very well. "Instead of coming out of the gate and sprinting like we really wanted to, we had to take a step back and make sure that we were delivering a game that players really wanted".

EA is working on a Cloud-based game streaming service, made by a new EA team based out of Israel.

A chance for Portugal to build chemistry and hopefully, for them, avoid injury to any important players ahead of the World Cup. Another summer and another time that Cristiano Ronaldo never wants to play for Real Madrid again.

Positively though, there will still be meaningful interactions with NPCs and players will have an easy way to find a squad even if they don't have three other Anthem-playing friends. There are no loot boxes in the game, which is good news for most gamers.

EA Play has typically given fans several new trailers for their upcoming games, most notably Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 and other sports titles. "The romantic stuff, we're moving away from that for Anthem".

As for the story, we're still only getting high-level details, but here's what we know.

The game has been announced to release February 22, 2019. 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.
