EA E3 2018: Anthem

Lori Graves | 11 June, 2018, 09:38

The game follows the player in an attempt to defeat a mysterious enemy.

"I have been playing Star Wars games my whole life, now I get to make a Star Wars game".

It all started when DICE General Manager Oskar Gabrielson took to the stage and confirmed Battlefield 5 would have "no loot boxes, no premium pass". No loot boxes, in other words.

"We launched our game in November of a year ago and clearly we didn't get it quite right", he admitted.

Then came the not so secret news that Battlefield would be following the trend of 2018 and releasing a Battle Royale mode after launch.

Loot Crates - Since EA is publishing the game, many gamers feared that Anthem would be riddled with the pay to win advantages that almost killed Star Wars Battlefront 2. Its release is still a way off, but EA has stated that there is a testable build of the series at E3. Our first look at the game's story mode will debut at Xbox's conference on Sunday. Traditional thinking was that this strategy would allow developers and publishers to keep the attention of its audience while also generating further revenue from their products.

Thanks to the folks at EA Games, there was no shortage of Star Wars gaming news at E3 this weekend. Business considerations are now below ensuring that its community of players have a valuable, frictionless experience.

The biggest concern among fans was whether this new strategy would also apply to BioWare's Anthem. The game has a singleplayer hub so that gamers can advance the story at their own pace, surrounded by a shared multiplayer world for everyone to shoot and jetpack their way through. To beat them you will be suiting up in a Javelin, one of four different exoskeletons that protect you from the harsh environment. The new trailer surrounds a storm that's on the verge of wiping out civilization as we know it. That means no ability to pay for gameplay advantage in Anthem. Bioware are a beloved developer but their last project, Mass Effect Andromeda, wasn't successful or popular, and new mechanics in Anthem like a multiplayer open world haven't gone down very well.

The game has been announced to release February 22, 2019.
