Amazon's Italian site has leaked the potential release date for Anthem about an hour ahead of EA Play, the first of the major E3 pressers planned by all of the big publishers. Battlefield V will put players into the chaos of World War II, bringing the franchise full circle back to where it all started.
Sea of Solitude is a new EA Originals title, about a world where being lonely makes you into a monster.
Finally, we're getting a better look at BioWare's brand new upcoming game Anthem with a brand new cinematic trailer.
EA's kicking off E3 2018 with its EA Play conference. That's all we know so far, but with the game coming out holiday 2019, I'm sure we can expect to see more at next year's E3. You can switch between these for any given mission, it's not a permanent choice.
Similar to games like Destiny and other online multiplayer games, your team of up to four players can venture out into the world as a party but you can also run into other players on your own since everyone is exploring the same shared space. The reveal didn't include hard proof of BioWare's promises about story content in the game, however, particularly BioWare's onstage assurance that Anthem can wholly work as a single-player experience.
The player character will be a freelancer, individuals uniquely suited to piloting the exosuits so prominently featured in the game.
The mythology of Anthem boasts a world abandoned by its gods, yet filled with the remnants of their tools and a mystical force called the Anthem of Creation. Instead, you'll buy everything that you want directly. Depending on which javelin (the name for the Iron Man-like mech suits) you choose, you will either play as the ranger, colossus, interceptor, or storm classes.
The highly anticipated action title is set for release on February 22, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. More's the pity. Citadel was ace, though, so if there's a breath of that sort of camaraderie in Anthem we might get to enjoy some of that BioWare magic after all. Thee will still be cosmetic DLC, but zero play to win.
