The new ‘shared world’ action RPG is BioWare’s answer to Destiny

BioWare’s big upcoming shooter made an appearance at E3 today, and it looks as ambitious as ever. Announced last year, Anthem lets players strap into exosuits to protect humanity, which is living under a protected city. Here’s the latest cinematic trailer.

Anthem is an open-world shooter where players can roam and find objectives, enemy mobs and patrols, ruins, as well as special events — and many of these tasks drop loot. One of the biggest draws for Anthem is that it combines four player co-op with classic BioWare-style conversations and world-altering choices. (BioWare explained that they want to build a game that changes every time you play.) And, of course, you can customize the heck out of your suits.

During today’s presentation, BioWare stressed that it wants to nail what people love about single-player games, specifically the story, with the fun of multiplayer.

Anthem will release on February 22nd, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
