They also debuted a number of visual Javelin customization options, noting that vanity items, but no gameplay altering items, will be available for purchase as non-loot box micro-transactions. Community response to EA's decision resulted in the publisher backtracking on the extent to which additional paid add-ons would affect the player's experience in "Battlefront II" and future titles.

After the severe criticism EA received for Battlefront 2 a year ago, this time around the company has vowed to change the game.

Electronic Arts and BioWare have staple-gunned a February 22, 2019 release date to the hotly anticipated Anthem.

Bioware are trying to really make the story feel like a single-player experience rather than a co-op shooter.

Again, like Destiny, ANTHEM will also require an online connection, meaning that you won't be able to play unless you're connected to the internet. It'll come out simultaneously for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, though it's a safe bet that EA Access and Origin Access will offer their usual Play First Trials several days earlier on Xbox One and PC respectively. While no footage was shown, the idea of a battle royale mode made by Battlefield developer DICE was exciting enough to elicit a cacophony of cheers from the conference room. "It gives us an opportunity to drop in an event that changes the game play for everyone".


In a cover issue for Game Informer, Hudson described the Mass Effect series as "his baby", whilst solidifying some already pre-established Dragon Age news.

Thanks to a world ravaged by natural disasters, players will have to traverse Anthem's world in Iron-Man-esque suits known as javelins. It probably doesn't make too much sense to launch Anthem right by it.

PvP - Anthem will not include player versus player multiplayer at launch, but they may add it later.

The game has been announced to release February 22, 2019. And we're happy to see that it looks like its sequel will be exactly the same.

Leveling up in Anthem is done by completing missions and defeating enemies to earn XP, it's possible that there will also be other ways to gain XP. 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.
