After being teased yesterday at EA’s Press Conference, Bioware revealed the first six minutes of gameplay for their new IP Anthem.
Taking place in a walled city, you play as a freelancer who uses mechanical armor called Javelins to protect the city from alien forces. The Javelins can boost, fly, swim, and more easily take down the massive creatures of the outside world
Also revealed was the game’s co-op, allowing players to create squads to go on outside exploration missions for resources.
Here’s a rundown on the game, via BioWare:
In Anthem, up to four friends can unravel the world’s mysteries and take on its most fearsome challenges together. Shared danger means shared glory, and successful Freelancers will all be richly rewarded for successful exploits. Throughout their adventure, players can outfit their Freelancers with powerful Javelin exosuits, each of which are equipped with unique weapons and abilities. Players can also customize their Javelin with gear they earn and craft throughout the adventure, and leave a lasting mark on the world.
Anthem launches in 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
