Anthem's February release date confirmed

Anthem's February release date confirmed

For those that may have missed it or just want a second look, here is a full recap of EA's 2018 E3 Conference.

Electronic Arts came out swinging at this year's E3 conference. Movement enhancements, moveable defense emplacements, character customisation and the news that destructibility is making a big return are all key talking points.

The idea of adding a competitive multiplayer mode onto an otherwise strictly cooperative game also isn't unheard of.

In a suprise announcement, a new, competitive Command & Conquer game is headed to mobile devices titled Command & Conquer: Rivals. Vehicles can drive through and fully collapse buildings, which can shake up strategies.

Other notable nuggets from the EA Play event are that there are lots of EA SPORTS titles on the way. As an additional side note, FIFA 18 will get the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 update free for a limited time on demo versions of the game in PS4 and Xbox One. The studio also confirmed that whatever interactions players will have with NPCs in zones like Fort Tarsis, those will not include any romances, breaking from the traditions established in the likes of Dragon Age and Mass Effect.

Star Wars fans might be interested in the Clone Wars DLC for Star Wars Battlefront 2.

A new Star Wars game is coming in 2019 thanks to Respawn Entertainment. The game takes place during the "dark times" between episodes III and IV of the movies and we can expect it during the holidays 2019. It will chronicle the events of Order 66 and the immediate consequences.


Players excited to enter the risky world of Anthem are now able to pre-order the game. It also combines four player co-op features with conversations that have world-altering choices. It will also see a revamp that will be revealed during this Summer. From the looks of the gameplay trailer, the world has a huge sense of scale. The big news was that the UEFA Champion's League license has been given to the series. Further, the developer revealed that it will be set between the 30-year gap between Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV - A New Hope. The first game announced for this program was Josef Fares' A Way Out, released earlier this year. However, the website did list the bonuses or perks gamers would receive if they pre-order the special edition.

A pre-alpha has been announced but is only open to Android users in the United States and Canada right now. No release date was given.

EA kicked off the E3 2018 festivities yesterday by once again hosting their own event separate from E3 in Hollywood. EA devoted a "deep dive" into the upcoming release, meaning a ton of news was given. This is a shared world RPG where players can don powered armoured suits and play cooperative missions. The game has been described as dynamic and changing. The Company develops and delivers games, content and online services for Internet-connected consoles, mobile devices and personal computers.

Another interesting feature revealed is that there is fall damage. The player controlling the red Colossus, on the other hand, chose to go with weapons resembling mortars and grenade launchers in lieu of a flamethrower. Based on tweets from Mark Durrah with BioWare, Javelin personalization is going to be a mix of in-game drops and available base options for each Javelin. The co-op section is balanced.

Finally, the release date was given.

Anthem is developed by BioWare and will be available worldwide February 22 for Origin for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
