At the end of EA's Play event ahead of the official E3 conferences, three members from BioWare took to the stage for a deep dive on the title - dropping a cinematic trailer alongside extended footage of gameplay.
This year has seen a slightly more subdued showing from the company with quite a few reminders that micro-transactions are now bad.
For Star Wars Battlefront 2, the game will feature a new squad system, as well as a starfighter mode, soon. The hub for players will be single-player, though.
Andromeda was a galaxy too far for the team, who are now looking to bounce back with their latest addition.
While it is not impossible to play alone, solo has been described as potentially more hard without the full four person team.
As it revealed past year, BioWare reiterated that Anthem is an online multiplayer role-playing game that you can play solo or with friends. The studio provided a huge amount of new details about the gameplay and story. Essentially, BioWare's goal is to get Anthem players playing together and the implication is that having NPC squadmates would take something away from that sort of experience. As humanity is fractured, it struggles to live on in harsh, unforgiving environments that they can navigate only with exosuits called Javelins.
Anthem will launch on 22nd February 2019, which is the same day as Days Gone, on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Additionally, players will be able to customize the various suits with cosmetic appearances and gear. Customisation is a big effort here; skins, weapons etc. - there are a whole host of options to make your javelin your own. But we're finding it doesn't really look like the kind of BioWare we've come to know - no alien flirting or tough narrative choices here.
You'll be donning a Javelin exosuit as a Freelancer to venture out into the world to fight against The Dominion, a multitude of giant monsters, and other enemy factions. In a bid to increase the longevity of the game, Bioware also promised to regularly add more story content in the future.
