BioWare's next game titled 'Anthem' – full reveal at Microsoft E3 press conference

Electronic Arts has announced Anthem – a new game franchise currently in the works at BioWare. Revealed as a part of the publisher's EA Play press conference, the title has received a short teaser trailer ahead of its gameplay reveal on June 11.

From the renowned developer behind the Mass Effect franchise, Anthem appears to be an action-adventure experience set within a prehistoric setting. While details are thin, the title seems to follow a society taking refuge within a fortified settlement, where armored soldiers are used to hold back hostile forces.

A full gameplay reveal for Anthem is scheduled for Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference tomorrow, at 5 PM ET / 10 PM BST. Having been debuted at EA Play shortly after discussing Project Scorpio's hardware benefits, we expect the game to be among those showcased on Microsoft's upcoming console.

For now, we'll just have to sit back admire the teaser trailer, ahead of the full gameplay showcase. Make sure to let us know what you think of Anthem in the comments section.

  • Yes!
  • true 4k gaming on scorpio...oh I love that.
    pony boys are crying for piece of **** upscaler
  • What?
  • Interesting, I have found recent Bioware games to be lacking, but I hope this one changes my opinion.
  • As do I. Where are the games like Knights of the Old Republic?
  • E3 doesn't interest me anymore. Games in general don't. I guess its part of getting older.
  • No, it's not. It's part of being interested in other things. The older I get the more I appreciate games.
  • Crossing Fingers, so I can give EA Destiny the Finger
  • Ok so this 3rd party will use up some of the time of the XB conference. We haven't seen much or enough at EA Play. So yes, it'll be nice to have more details.
  • Xbox conference is 2 hours. The longest by any of the big 3 ever. Prepare the world for Scorpio. The storm is coming.
  • Stop lying. It was 1 hour and 40 minutes. Storm is coming? It was a storm alright. I guess we were flooded by timed indie games.
  • They put Mass effect on hold for this?
  • I don't think so.
    Cause Mass Effect got a couple of patches in recent weeks and more to come.
  • There are 3 Bioware branches this branch made KotOR the original 3 Mass Effect games and the original Dragon Age. Has nothing to do with Andromida. So should have nothing to do with it. But with this branches pedigree I'm pretty excited.
  • Sounds great!
  • Hopefully will be better than Mass Effect.
  • Wrong branch of Bioware. This one did not work on the most recent game in Mass Effect
  • 4k gaming new in on Scorpio.
  • Can't wait. MS is going to destroy this year.
  • Wouldn't call it a prehistoric setting
