Electronic Arts and BioWare have shared a new trailer for Anthem at this year’s Game Awards.
Featured above, the new trailer shows off more of the upcoming mecha-action game, its story, and its characters.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
On a world left unfinished by the gods, a shadowy faction threatens all of humankind. The only thing that stands between these villains and the ancient technology they covet are the Freelancers.
Join with up to three other players and assemble high-tech, hand-crafted, uniquely powerful exosuits. Explore vast ruins, battle deadly enemies, and claim otherworldly artifacts. With every mission, you and your Javelin exosuit grow in power. Fight the dangers of an ever-changing world. Rise united to defeat evil. Triumph as one.
Anthem invites you to experience a co-operative Action-RPG set in a new and mysterious world from BioWare and EA.
- Adventure Together, Triumph as One – Team with up to three other players in cooperative adventures that reward both combined effort and individual skill. Each player’s choice of Javelin exosuit will shape their contribution and strategic role. As you explore, you will discover a gripping story filled with unique and memorable characters. Seamless and intelligent matchmaking will ensure you can quickly and easily find other players to adventure alongside.
- The Ultimate Armor, Suit Up With Javelins – Every time you enter the world as a Freelancer, you’ll select a powerful Javelin exosuit – armor designed to provide its pilot with incredible offensive and defensive capabilities. Move at incredible speed, rocket across the skies, or safely roam watery depths. As you play, you will constantly progress both your own abilities as a Javelin pilot and the combat and traversal capabilities of your growing collection of exosuits.
- An Endless Arsenal, Customize Your Loadout – The Javelin exosuits – and accompanying gear, weapons, and equipment – can be extensively customized and personalized. As you rank up and defeat enemies, you’ll gather gear and complete milestones that unlock amazing personalization options and turn your Javelins into testaments to your ability and achievement.
- Always a New Danger, Explore An Evolving World – Anthem’s vast, ever-changing world features unpredictable conditions, hazards, and enemies. Over time, Anthem will develop and expand – introducing unique stories, challenges, and world-shaking events. This world is both beautiful and deadly – and will test you on each expedition you embark on with your Freelancer team.
Anthem is launching across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on February 22nd, 2019.
