Jeff Dunn wrote:The newest title from popular video game developer BioWare has been revealed, and it’s called “Anthem.”

Electronic Arts, the game’s publisher, gave a very brief tease of the new game at an event on Saturday. EA’s event marked the beginning of E3, the biggest annual trade show in the video game industry.

The company unveiled only a 50-second teaser trailer, with little indication of how “Anthem” actually plays. So there’s not much to say just yet. Based on what we’ve got, though, we can say there are robot suits, gnarly monsters, and dramatic undertones.

You can get a sense for yourself below:

If all of this raises your interest, you won’t have to wait long for more details: EA says a fuller reveal will come at Microsoft’s planned Xbox event on Sunday.

“Anthem” is notable for being the long-teased next intellectual property from Canadian game maker BioWare, which has created a number of beloved action and role-playing games over the years. The most popular of those is likely the acclaimed “Mass Effect” series.

While the teaser trailer doesn’t give any specific gameplay footage, past comments from EA boss Andrew Wilson have characterised as an action-adventure title that’s built a “live service” of some sort. Wilson said in an earnings call in May that the game is on track to arrive sometime in EA’s 2019 fiscal year.


"Available on all platforms" I assume means the big three. Doesn't exactly look like a Switch game.

4P co-op open world game in flying Iron Man suits. Looks super sick.

It's incredible. Like a Destiny with campaign. Not to speak of the suit mechanics.

Your power grows with every step into the unknown. Whether plunder, revenge, or glory lures you onward, your choices will irrevocably change you—and the world around you.


They should have said CONTROL YOUR DESTINY.

Also interesting that I don't see BioWare's logo anywhere on the frontpage.

The only artwork I could find of the game:

Added to Most Wanted section.

Too bad it's a 2019 game.
