Following the teaser trailer released yesterday, EA took the stage at Microsoft's E3 press briefing to debut gameplay for Anthem, the "shared-world action-RPG" from BioWare studios.
The ~7 minutes of footage shows exosuits, loot, shooting, and other multiplayer RPG elements. Check out the footage here:
"Our developers at BioWare have been creating something special," said Patrick Soderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Worldwide Studios. "We're pushing Frostbite to new heights, developing a game unlike anything EA has ever made before. We're telling a new story, creating a social, co-operative experience, and putting it in a contiguous open world that is dynamic and will be ever-changing for years to come."
In Anthem, up to four friends can unravel the world's mysteries and take on its most fearsome challenges together. Shared danger means shared glory, and successful Freelancers will all be richly rewarded for successful exploits. Throughout their adventure, players can outfit their Freelancers with powerful Javelin exosuits, each of which are equipped with unique weapons and abilities. Players can also customize their Javelin with gear they earn and craft throughout the adventure, and leave a lasting mark on the world.
Anthem is scheduled to be released in Fall 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
