    This looks like it could be really good and I am going to be keeping an eye on it.

    It looks like it is going to be similar to Destiny which for me after playing Destiny as much as I have I cannot see that being a bad thing.





    After watching the gameplay reveal though it also seems to have a feel of Horizon Zero Dawn and a few other games.

    Release date from what I have seen is around November 2018 for all platforms.

    I think this could be another game I play alongside Destiny 2.

    Exactly my take on it. Looks like Bioware's Destiny with a sprinkling of Titanfall and I mean that in a really good way! Keeping an eye on it.

    It sounds like it has potential.

    It has a tested engine in the form of Frostbite.

    Nice mixture of genres.

    *crosses fingers*

    Also, if you give me that Colossus suit with some form of gatling gun, I'm happy as a pig in youknowwhat.

    Was watching the Xbox E3 stream segment on this and all i could think was 'So this is why ME: Andromeda was a mess... you were busy working on this instead...'

    Did look pretty though...

    IIRC I heard somewhere that it was a different part of the development company working on this and another part on MEA.

    Dingdingding!

    ME1-3 Were Bioware Edmonton, MEA was Bioware Montreal. Montreal was created as support for asset creation. MEA was their first full fledged game. I believe some ME1-3 staff ended up at Montreal, but by and large the team was wet behind the ears.

    Anthem is Edmonton.

    It may or may not be real, that can't really be determined for now, but:

    While things like company / game name are censored in the leaked slides the Anthem screenshots are not...

    Anyone playing this, this weekend?

    I am on the list of people for Closed Alpha :clap: might be thousands on it, but I get to play it this weekend, rather looking forward to it.

    Just not allowed to record/stream or publish anything about the performance etc.

    Activision Blizzard have absolutely not been using data gathering to manipulate the odds of items in loot boxes for a couple of years now. It's no surprise if EA is working on something similar to manipulate the likelihood of the player spending more money.

    Of course, this assumes that the model is in any way sustainable. We've already seen plenty of times this year that growth in the non-mobile games industry has pretty much ground to a halt. Whilst at the same time so many games have free to play style economies that players can't possibly afford to put money into them all. EA's already had a bunch of critical and commercial flops this year, it seems the market is saturated.

    We'll see how this all relates to Anthem soon, but I guess it will either be a huge, genre redefining smash hit, or the last ever Bioware game.
