A year ago, EA surprised everyone by revealing Anthem for Xbox One and other platforms. The game 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.
As reported by VG247, at PAX West 2018, Lead Producer Michael Gamble said that development of the next Dragon Age and Mass Effect games would be heavily influenced by Anthem. Gamble clarified on Twitter, "Anthem has a main story and that story concludes. But it also allows us to continue the storytelling soon after launch, and keep the world alive and changing and fresh. New adventures, characters, and fun."
It's great to see that BioWare will adopt this approach to its next projects. Hopefully they'll be as addictive as Destiny 2 which — despite its flaws — is a great example of how you keep players coming back for more.
According to Game Rant, unlike Destiny 2 though, all of Anthem's story DLC will be free for players. It's unclear if there will be other multiplayer expansions, but we'll let you know as soon as the developer shares more details.
Hopefully Anthem will be a polished experience when it launches next year. The game was supposed to come out in 2018, but was pushed back by a few months to make it better. At E3 2017, BioWare said that Anthem was being developed with the Xbox One X in mind. Hopefully this means that the title will be a visual showcase on Microsoft's new platform.
