At the end of EA’s E3 2018 briefing, we got a new look at the highly anticipated Bioware title, Anthem. Here is the full cinematic trailer:
There are four total classes to choose from that will impact your playstyle. Colossus, Ranger, Storm, and Interceptor. You will also be able to tailor these suits (called Javelins) however you choose with diverse customization options. The Ranger is pretty much your balanced class while the Colossus acts as the team’s tank. Details for the Storm and Interceptor classes have not been disclosed yet at this time.
It is important to note that Casey Hudson (GM of Bioware) said that this is the short version of the gameplay demo so we may see more at Microsoft or Sony’s briefing later this weekend. Finally, EA has confirmed that Anthem will not feature any pay to win strategies, including loot-boxes.
UPDATE: According to Mark Darrah, an executive producer for Bioware, Anthem will not have any PvP at launch.
