Anthem Gets Pre-Launch Demo
EA and BioWare have announced that there will be a pre-launch demo for its online action RPG Anthem. The demo will launch three weeks before the full game on February 1, 2018, and will be available to all those who have either pre-ordered the game or are active members of either Origin Access or EA Access. The companies also released a new trailer for the game. Titled “Our World, My Story”, the video examines the link between the online shared-world gameplay and the personal story told to each player.
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 persistent appearance of new storms, mutated creatures, and giant monsters. Anthem will be released on February 22, 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
