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.
Quick Thoughts about Anthem:
A few of the topics discussed include the technical issues experienced during the weekend, flying the javelins, combat, movement, customization, and what this game has to offer players who both do and don't like this open-world shooter genre.
