Anthem may get new region after launch

Anthem is an upcoming shared world third-person shooter from BioWare. BioWare is the studio behind famous franchises like Dragon Age and Mass Effect. Anthem is expected to launch on February 22, 2019, but that hasn't stopped the developer from releasing new details about the project.

Aside from featuring a plethora of content at launch, Anthem should get new cosmetic items, creatures, and even regions after launch. According to a report by WCCFtech, "BioWare Producer Scylla Costa teased some of the post-launch content the developers are already working on, and it looks like that might include a new explorable region." You can read Costa's response to a MMO Games question below.

There are a lot of things coming post-launch. We have many different teams who have been working on that stuff for a few weeks already, so you can see different cosmetic items, different creatures, maybe a new region to explore! You'll have different events, different weather states. Anthem is a dynamic world, if you have rain right now it applies to your jets you can fly for longer as it cools down your jets. You can use electricity and therefore create larger effects. Try to imagine that we can create different weather states and apply that so not only are new parts of the world going to behave differently, but old parts of the world as well. If it's day or if it's night some creatures may show up or may be more powerful. We can play with all of these variables and create a new narrative for the game... PvP is not available for launch but it's going to depend on the feedback that we get from the player base.

We can't wait to hear more about the upcoming content, especially the new region! Hopefully the game will be a polished experience when it launches in February. However, only time will tell. A lot of gamers are skeptical given how Mass Effect: Andromeda turned out.

  • Awesome! I really enjoyed the VIP Demo!
  • "Are you interested in Anthem? Let us know." I am very interested in Anthem. It is exactly the kind of game I like: robotic suits like Armored Core, multi-player dungeons that take a long time to finish like classic WoW, and a focus on large vistas like Xenoblade. But EA sticks to the back of my mind. How many hours of grinding will it take for me to get a new Javelin? How expensive will colour pallets be? How much time is needed, or how much much money do I pay if choosing to skip the grind, will it take me to make my Ranger look unique in a full priced game?
  • I should hope so otherwise Warframe will still be the better game seeing as it actually gets consistent new content.
  • It may also get intrusive micro transactions, loot boxes, and pay to win. I'm not going to consider this game until it's clear that it looks a lot more like it's final form than it does at launch.
  • Micro transactions are for cosmetic purchases which can also be purchased with in game currency. This has already been discussed.
