One of the biggest games at today's EA Play event at E3 was BioWare's Anthem. After showing off a new trailer, EA and BioWare announced that Anthem is coming out on February 22, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Anthem is BioWare's ambitious live service RPG. The game takes place in a connected world where players take control of Freelancers tasked with fighting evil gods using weaponized battlesuits called "Javelins."
BioWare first announced Anthem at last year's E3, showing off a brand new sci-fi universe. Since Anthem is a live service game, players can join up with one another for online co-op, but BioWare says Anthem is playable by yourself. And don't worry, BioWare also says that trademark world building and story is front and center for Anthem.
Anthem was originally set to come out this year but was delayed until 2019. EA and BioWare also said that Anthem will not have randomized loot boxes, but will feature cosmetic purchases where players know exactly what it is they will be buying.
