The upcoming project from Bioware deviates from their past as Anthem steps away from story focused single-player RPGs, into the realm of online Action-RPG. In it, you play with up to 4 friends each with a different exosuit, or javelin, and traverse a diverse open world completing various quests as Freelancers with a unique story as well as emergent gameplay opportunities.
Here's a description from Bioware:
Anthem is a shared-world action RPG, where players can delve into a vast landscape teeming with amazing technology and forgotten treasures. This is a world where Freelancers are called upon to defeat savage beasts, ruthless marauders, and forces plotting to conquer humanity.
