    It's pretty obvious from the reveal trailer, this game is going to be EA's answer to Destiny. Sci-fi themed first person shooter with maximum emphasis on loot and gear grinding, with a story added in there as just a formality.

    Plus... it's EA, how won't there be microtransactions? No don't give us that "on going discussion" crap like the choice weighs heavily on you. You're putting it in, we all know it.

    The discussion is only about how to maximise income from it and how to quietly get rid of all remaining games where it’s hard to integrate them.

    BioWare’s Anthem may have a virtual reality mode

    December 18, 2017 17 comments

    BioWare has been unusually quiet about its upcoming Destiny 2 killer, Anthem, since the title’s initial announcement this past summer. And while nothing official has been stated, some fans spotted an interesting detail at a company party that might indicate that virtual reality is in the game’s future.


    The picture in question shows a BioWare party in which a cubicle wall in the back appears to have the words “Anthem VR” on the side. Now as someone on Reddit pointed out, this doesn’t confirm anything, as there could be several explanations for the photo. Someone claimed that this was simply an internal VR booth set up for the party and wasn’t indicative of any actual VR software being designed for the game.
    Still, it’s interesting food for thought as we continue the wait for the company to talk more about this multiplayer shooter.Read more

    I don't buy that for a second. Not for Anthem atleast. It'll have the same amount of "story" as Destiny.

    The BioWare that made PC RPGs I grew up with died when EA bought them and DA Origins was their last genuine game.

    Seems like a co-op game in the vain of Destiny/Destiny 2 with a touch of BioWare elements. Gameplay looks fun and the graphics look nice and all, but it looks like its trying to appeal to so many masters (the traditional BioWare fans and the Destiny crowd) that its confusing me. It has a single player component but I still have to always be online in order to play the game. Why do I need to always be online in order to play by myself?

    BioWare's never had good trailers so I can't judge the game by its marketing. Story is the most important thing to me when it comes to games, and unfortunately BioWare stuck out on that front with their last two releases. So combining their recent track record with the fact that Anthem is an MMORPG, I find it very unlikely that the narrative will be any good.

    The gameplay looks fun, the graphics are good, but until reviews are in I can't get excited for this. Which is a shame, because the BioWare of old made some of my favorite games ever.
