E3 2018: Anthem Gets Another Spectacular Showing

The spectacular futuristic world in Anthem video game has been the main protagonist at the Electronic Arts press conference held prior to E3 2018.

Star Wars Considering Star Wars Battlefront 2 launched just a year ago, we probably won't be getting a full successor any time soon, but EA is the exclusive license holder to Star Wars - if they're going to announce any new expansions for the game, now is the time.

EA held a live reveal event for Battlefield V just over a fortnight ago. Through a new trailer, an on-stage developer interview, and a decent chunk of actual gameplay, we picked up a lot of new information about the game - and yes, that does finally include an actual release date.

Anthem is promising the ability to not only cosmetically personalize the "Freelancer" pilot you play as, but also the Javelin that you fly around the world in. Players will also create stories of their own while they play, so no two journeys are the same. Instead, it simply confirmed that the game would let players fight as a Jedi in events between episodes III and IV of the film series. A new trailer will also be arriving on June 9, according to a recent tweet from Anthem's official Twitter account. Ubisoft did exactly that with its open-world military shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands, and now one could argue that the game's Ghost War PvP mode is even more popular than its standard co-op component.

In Anthem, you will unravel the world's mysteries and take on its most fearsome challenges together.

In fact, when combined with GameInformer's massive info blowout, I'm confident Anthem will be every bit as politically, socially, and culturally rich as Mass Effect and Dragon Age when it release on 22nd February. The fan-favorite platformer Unravel now has a sequel in Unravel 2. Furthermore, the game will require an always-online connection in order to be played.

Given that E3 2018 takes place in Los Angeles, the advertised event times are in GMT-7.

Bioware seem committed to supporting Anthem over a number of years with new missions and story content. In a deep-dive into the game, Hudson discussed the game's emphasis on crafting meaningful stories alongside its multiplayer experience. Also, EA has said that no premium passes will be required for users to play nor will there be any lootboxes. Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 will be available on September 28th, 2018 on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. That's all we know so far, but with the game coming out holiday 2019, I'm sure we can expect to see more at next year's E3.
