E3 2018: New Anthem Gameplay Shown Off

We'll be live blogging EA Play in about a half hour and will keep eagle eyes out to see if the leak is true!

EA's E3 press conference on Saturday ended with a big, Anthem-loaded bang. The Dominion, the bad guys, are looking to use the "Anthem of creation" to create even more chaos in the world.

Oddly enough, BioWare has announced in a full cover story with Game Informer that the game will not feature any romantic relationships between players. Details were scarce on the Interceptor, but we know it's the most agile of the classes while the Storm is a caster-type that could help support the squad.

The decision to move away from "pay-for-power" advantages comes with a backstory for the publisher, which was highly criticized after revealing the extent of microtransactions in "Star Wars: Battlefront II" previous year. Not only did they show off a bit of new gameplay but we also got the release date as well. Unlike Destiny's Tower, a social space that always brims with players dancing around and/or ignoring each other, you'll have this little part of the world to yourself (aside from the NPCs, obviously). They also debuted a number of visual Javelin customization options, noting that vanity items, but no gameplay altering items, will be available for purchase as non-loot box micro-transactions.


You'll still be building relationships and maintaining friendships, but you won't be falling for any specific characters the way we did in BioWare's previous games.

Expect EA to go hard on Anthem during their presentation this year, most likely with a lengthy demo.

Anthem is set to launch on February 22, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can switch between these for any given mission, it's not a permanent choice.

Thanks to a world ravaged by natural disasters, players will have to traverse Anthem's world in Iron-Man-esque suits known as javelins. The latter's launch is far more limited, however, with Android users having first crack at the game's "pre-alpha" test version.
