During EA Play today, Electronic Arts announced that BioWare’s highly anticipated action-RPG Anthem will release February 22, 2019. The ambitious game, which emphasizes a “social, connected cooperative multiplayer,” will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
During the presentation today, EA showed off a brand new trailer for Anthem, while also revealing a ton of new details.
In Anthem, up to four players explore and battle in a dangerous, mysterious place populated by great characters and a unique BioWare story. Players will also create stories of their own while they play, so no two journeys are the same. Javelin exosuits make their pilots powerful heroes in the world, with awesome weapons and incredible special abilities that allow for combat and exploration in a hostile environment. Players will be able to customize and personalize their suits with unique paint jobs and gear so they’ll have the right tools to confront almost any situation, and look good doing it.
In addition to the trailer, EA also featured an in-depth look at Anthem featuring BioWare developer Casey Hudson (General Manager), Mark Darrah (Executive Producer), and Cathleen Rootsaert (Lead Writer). From the game’s creation to its concept to its story to its features, check out everything about Anthem below:
More of Anthem‘s gameplay will be revealed tomorrow during Microsoft’s E3 Xbox briefing.
