It’s a little over a month before the release of Bioware’s Anthem, and they decided to kick up the marketing and hype for the game a notch by releasing the first in a series of trailers showcasing the gameplay and other components of the game.
In the first trailer we look at the story, progression and customisation of Anthem. The trailer explans a little bit of the world of Anthem and the lore surrounding it, how humanity survives in such a brutal and dangerous environment, and what the purpose of the Javelin is. Javelins are a form of mech-like suits that enable Freelancers, elite Javelin pilots to go out and explore the world, protect humanity and uncover the mysteries of the world.
The video goes into details regarding the four different Javelins which are called Storm, Ranger, Colossus and Interceptor. Each of the Javelins serves a different role and purpose, with each being customisable to suit your playstyle. The power and abilities of your Javelin are determined by the gear you use, with different types of weapons, equipment and components being available for use. On top of that, each Javelin has a unique, ultimate power that can unleash devastating firepower on your enemies.
Anthem offers a variety of choices for how you want to play. You can continue the story missions, do side quests, do combat in strongholds or simply just explore in free-play. The game offers a continuous open world, with you being able to team up with other players or play with friends to take down hard foes.
The game is set to release late February, with an open beta available to all platforms in the beginning of the month and we can expect a lot more details and information in the coming weeks.
