Anthem is Electronic Arts' latest shared-world action role-playing game, framed as the publisher’s “Destiny killer.” Anthem is built around cooperative shooter gameplay, building characters, and obtaining loot, capitalizing on the success of franchises embracing similar mechanics.
In the game's world, hostile monsters rule the wilderness, and humanity has taken refuge inside a walled city known as "Fort Tarsis." An evil collective known as the Dominion plans to use a mysterious force known as the "Anthem Of Creation" to destroy the remnants of society. Freelancers, bounty hunters bearing "Javelin" exosuits, are among the few who can venture outside the walls, forming the basis of gameplay.
Anthem launched on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PCs on February 22, 2019.
