EA Reveal New Details About Anthem And A New Trailer

Origin Access Premier members can be the first to play the full game with unlimited access on PC starting February 15, and EA Access and Origin Access Basic members can enjoy up to 10 hours of play time as part of the Play First Trial.

EA Play has typically given fans several new trailers for their upcoming games, most notably Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 and other sports titles. It'll feature no loot boxes or premium passes, as EA runs ever-further from the Battlefront II debacle.

At EA Play, EA's pre-E3 2018 event, EA showed off a gameplay trailer for shared world shooter Anthem.

This year's E3 will be EA's chance to reinvigorate enthusiasm in their household franchises, as well as prove to gamers that their upcoming games will be worth purchasing despite their many past mistakes.

While the release date was perhaps all we needed, there still wasn't a whole lot showing BioWare's signature style on the Destiny-like title - which may prove worrying to some.

Up to four players band together to take on whatever perils you discover as a heroic team. This time the action focuses on co-op, offering more challenging platforming and puzzles. They also announced two new smaller games published via EA's EA Originals programme, Sea of Solitude and Unravel Two, which will be released today. The reveal didn't include hard proof of BioWare's promises about story content in the game, however, particularly BioWare's onstage assurance that Anthem can wholly work as a single-player experience. Put on your Javelin suit, boost out into the wilderness, and you can team up with other players again. EA will, however, monetise the game through paid cosmetic modifications to Javelins, much like the skins in Fortnite. As you complete objectives, you return back to the hub to complete your missions and move forward with your individual story arc. It sounds like more Javelins will be added post launch. They vowed to not have any pay-to-win mechanics in future games.
