In the ramp up leading to the release of their newest game, BioWare has released part one in a series of trailers for Anthem. Dubbed “This is Anthem”, each trailer is meant to go into detail about anything players might be curious about concerning the game, and this first video goes into detail about the story, progression systems, and the customization.
The first third of the trailer talks about the story: you play as a Freelancer battling against the Dominion, a collective who want to gain control over the Anthem of Creation, re-shaping the world as they see fit. The second part shows the various armors you’ll be wearing: the Interceptor, Colossus, Ranger, and Storm. The trailer makes it clear these are just the “base” armors of the game, implying more are likely coming later on. Each armor plays differently from the others, they’ll be unlocked as you play through the game, and are customizable from the color of the suit to the loadouts. Each armor has two weapons, two offensive gear, two support slots, six component slots, and an ultimate weapon. Lastly, we’re shown what it looks like to take on missions in the game’s hub area, Fort Tarsis, or explore the world of Anthem in Free Play.
The end of the video promises a second part, which will show more of the shared world and end game events.
Anthem is due out for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on February 22nd, 2019.
