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.
At PAX West 2018, a gaming culture festival, we received a new trailer and demo release date. In order to enhance immersion, the sections inside the walled city of "Fort Tarsis" take place from a first-person perspective. This makes you feel like you're part of the world. Fort Tarsis is filled with colorful — and shady — characters which present numerous challenges themselves. Currently, Anthem only allows for two dialogue choices in conversations. According to PC Gamer, "The two choices aren't aligned with a morality system of any kind, but do differ in tone slightly."
If you don't want to wait until February 22, a "VIP" demo will be available to players beforehand on February 1. Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 users will have access to it, but you have to either subscribe to EA Access or preorder the game to play it. EA Access is only available on Xbox One. BioWare also confirmed that additional technology tests and betas were also in the works.
Hopefully Anthem will be a polished and worthy experience when it launches next year. The game was supposed to come out in 2018, but was pushed back by a few months. 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.
