Video 22 Hours Ago by Jason Love 0 Anthem Gets Release Date and Some Co Op Gameplay Not as much being shown off as one would hope

The release date of the PlayStation 4, XBox One and PC title is potentially February 19, 2019. The company behind games like Battlefield, Titanfall and the most recent Star Wars games is hosting its own event in Hollywood this weekend called EA Play.

The developer interview gave us some more cryptic clues about the world.

Anthem, EA's big bet on the epic hobby game, will not have player-versus-player multiplayer. When players step out into Anthem's unsafe world, it will be a place inhabited by other players. BioWare's shared world shooter that looks incredible. They have achieved this by making the base areas single player but the wider world is a persistent multiplayer space right down to every player experiencing weather effects at the same time. Players will also create stories of their own while they play, so no two journeys are the same. You'll be able to customize gear, weapons, and the look of each Javelin suit that you use. As you complete objectives, you return back to the hub to complete your missions and move forward with your individual story arc.

EA Play will be broadcast live on June 9 at 11am PT, 2pm ET, or 7pm BST.

You'll still be building relationships and maintaining friendships, but you won't be falling for any specific characters the way we did in BioWare's previous games.

This Trump G7 Press Conference In Quebec Was Something Else
However, the President of the European Council on Friday rejected a call by Trump and Conte on the first day of the annual summit. Trump has said that Russian Federation should have been readmitted to the negotiations.

With the lack of reveals that weren't expected, other than the new Star Wars game - which didn't even include an actual reveal - and the Clone Wars expansion for Star Wars Battlefront II, the rest was all sort of just. meh.

We'll have to see if the game can accomplish that sort of long life, but EA is doing what it can to ensure it is appealing before it launches.

BioWare manager Casey Hudson confirmed the title won't have loot boxes or "ability to pay for power", but will feature microtransactions for customisable outfits for each mech suit, otherwise known as Javelins.

You can choose which type of experience you want to have as a pilot each time before you head into the world to start a gameplay session by choosing which Javelin you would like to play as. It'll come out simultaneously for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, though it's a safe bet that EA Access and Origin Access will offer their usual Play First Trials several days earlier on Xbox One and PC respectively.
