Bioware's been hinting for much of this past year they're working on a new IP, complete with rumors they've been yanking their people from various of their other franchises to support its development. It was highly anticipated they would introduce the game at this year's EF Conference, and they didn't disappoint. Yesterday they offered up a teaser trailer:
But then today they offered up a bit more insight using some actual gameplay during the Microsoft presentation at the Conference. Here's the first look at the game called Anthem:
Those of us watching the live presentation were duly impressed. That being said, we weren't terribly clear how to reconcile the game up against the developer's history. Bioware's more known for its RPG's than anything like this. But then Bioware's been adamant they've never made a game like Anthem before; they're even touting it as something utterly unique ever. We thought it looked like something of a mesh-up of the old Battletech games, with some Ark: Survival tossed into the mix.
Regardless, we're all hoping for dynamic story attached to the game, as well as the fun-looking combat the trailers introduced. Fingers crossed, right? Being a huge Bioware fan, I'm going to play this one. But with the co-op elements attached to it, we may want to keep this one on the community's radar, as well.
Hint: I WOULD be interested in leading anything we decide to do with Anthem.
At this point, the game is marked for release in Fall 2018. I will be watching it pretty close.
