First look at gameplay from BioWare’s Anthem

Matt Sayer 12 June 2017 NEWS


Jump in your exo-suit for some open-world, multiplayer action.

BioWare's new game, teased at yesterday's EA Play event, was shown off in full at Microsoft's E3 press conference this morning. Called Anthem, the sci-fi action-adventure game has you play as one of a group of freelancers exploring a lush open world using high-tech exo-suits known as Javelins.

These Javelins are the main draw of the game, with players able to customise their Javelin according to their play style using loot they scrounge from enemies. Multiplayer is another major focus of the game, with support for drop-in, drop-out co-op that seems crucial to taking down the monstrous enemies you'll fight.

Anthem will be Xbox One Enhanced with support for 4K and HDR.
