EA went all in on Anthem at its E3 presentation this year.
At EA Play, EA's pre-E3 2018 event, EA showed off a gameplay trailer for shared world shooter Anthem.
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. 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.
Players will get to be a freelancer pilot working with the citizens of Targus to figure out the secrets of the world and survive a looming presence of evil as you confront this world.
Anthem is now targeting a February 22, 2019 release.
And two games were outright launched during the EA Play: Unravel 2, a co-op sequel to the 2016 EA-published puzzle platformer, and Command and Conquer: Rivals, a new free-to-play, Clash Royale-like spin on the classic RTS series for iOS and Android.
There's a new Star Wars game in the works from the team at Respawn.
EA took a second to address their public image after the Battlefront II controversies, admitting that they had to learn and grow from it. The Ranger is a general suit for up close and personal combat, the Colossus is heavier and has big weapons, and there is also the Interceptor and the Storm.
There will be no loot boxes in the game, nor any other pay-to-play schemes that give players unfair advantages. Additionally, players will be able to customize the various suits with cosmetic appearances and gear.
The game many were waiting for didn't disappoint, getting the biggest showing of the conference.
