BioWare has kicked off their gameplay series of videos for their upcoming Anthem title, giving potential players a closer look at the role they will play in the story. 

Players will be able to fly, swim, fight and explore anywhere across the futuristic planet, working together as a group of pirates, accepting quests to battle against many of the different evils that the world has to offer. 

This interesting new video – which has been uploaded to Anthem Game’s official YouTube channel – showed not only how the story mode would look, but gave us some more insight about the specialists, weapons and other customization that it has to offer. 

“Before you head out, you have a choice on a number of objectives and ways to play” the narrator explains. “Continue your critical story mission, pick up quests from people in the fort – including people in your crew – enter one of the formidable strongholds or explore the open world in free play.” 

Players will start out by having the chance to customize their four base javelin suits, creating loadouts for different play styles. This will all contribute towards the effectiveness of their javelin.

There are two weapons that feature in-focus during this gameplay video. The first is the Hammerhead assault rifle, which has the lowest rate of fire of its class, but has “great striking power” according to its description. 

Alongside that, there’s a semi-automatic Sniper Rifle called a Wyvern Blitz, which can be seen below.

Anthem will also have matchmaking in every one of its activities, according to one of the lead producers Ben Irving, who has already revealed that it will be a default option. 

While that looks to be great news for solo gamers that might not have a squad ready to play with in time for the February 22 release date, should you not want to use matchmaking, there will be the option to disable it.

Lily ‘LilyPichu’ Ki took on Kristoferyee ‘Kristoferyee’ Yee in a rap battle on OfflineTV’s RP server and it’s fair to say both contestants didn’t hold back.

The hype and excitement surrounding Rust continues to rise as even more streamers have joined in on the action across both of OfflineTV’s servers.

Since Abe ‘Baboabe’ Chung’s decision to split the original OfflineTV server into two, both PvP and RP players have had dedicated servers to enjoy. With ‘The Badlands’ PvP server descending into constant raids and killing, players on ‘The Divide’ RP server have been finding other ways to battle each other without the use of weapons.

One such encounter involved huge online personality LilyPichu taking on fellow Twitch streamer Kristoferyee in a rap battle in front of a crowd of onlookers.

LilyPichu vs Kristoferyee in savage rap battle

It’s not every day you get to see two Twitch personalities take part in a heated rap battle on a custom-made stage. Well, that’s exactly the kind of content you should expect while watching OfflineTV’s RP server.

LilyPichu took on Kristoferyee at the rap dome on January 14 in front of the likes of Corpse, JackSepticEye, and Ludwig.

Both participants had a set of great bars and lines throughout, with Lily taking the more savage approach: “It’s hard to think of roasts, I don’t really have much planned, when Kristofer himself as a person is so bland.”

Despite Kristofer’s slow start, he came back strong with a hard-hitting set of bars later on in the battle: “Look I don’t mean to be a snitch, but word on the server is that you’re an evil b***h, I’m loyal to H12, you only commit treason, what kind of person hates cats for no reason.”

It looked like Lily was on the ropes at that point, but she refused to go down without a fight and arguably won the battle with her final verse: “My dog has more charisma, more talent, and he’s cute, not to mention on Twitter and Instagram he has more followers to boot.”

Finishing with a jab about clout and followers was just enough to secure Lily the victory over Kristofer. It’s fair to say she definitely took the more ruthless approach and it certainly paid off in the end.

Fingers crossed this isn’t the last rap battle we’ll see on the OfflineTV Rust server, it’d be great to get Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel in the rap dome to see how he’d perform.
