BioWare Shows Twenty-Minute Anthem Demo
BioWare has released a new video for its upcoming online action RPG Anthem. The video is narrated by lead producer Ben Irving and follows a group of four players — all members of the development staff — as they take on a mission titled “Scars & Villainy”, with the narration detailing various gameplay and setting elements.
Anthem is an always-online title in a shared open world, while the single-player story revolves around a hub base called Tarsis. The game is set on a world “left unfinished by the gods”. However, the creative tools of the gods were left behind, and these clash with a force called the Anthem of Creation, causing the world to be in constant flux with the constant appearance of new storms, mutated creatures, and giant monsters. Anthem will be released on January 22, 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
