BioWare has added an incredible social hub feature to Anthem and many fans are getting excited about it already.
The feature, which was revealed by the project’s lead producer Michael Gamble, shows that players will have two options to choose from once they’ve completed missions.
Instead of just pursuing their next adventure, he revealed that you’ll be able to stop off at two different locations.
“After a mission, you can head back to the Tarsis and catch up with some of the amazing characters we’ve created for you, or head back to the brand new Launch Bay” he tweeted.
Launch Bay is a location that will allow you to communicate with up to 16 other online players in a social hub setting, perhaps to stop off to grab another contract with friends before starting the next chapter of the game’s story.
The video below gives us an idea of not just how the place looks, but also see the ways in which characters will move in this environment.
After a mission, you can head back to Tarsis and catch up with some of the amazing characters we've created for you...OR...head back to the brand new Launch Bay, hang out with your friends, use the forge, reload and grab a new contract. Yeah, we listened to you... details soon! pic.twitter.com/m5sp96IpDh

He ended his tweet with: “Yeah, we listened to you.” Judging by the reaction to this addition, people seem very pleased with Gamble and his team right now.
Anthem has already been showcased in a number of gameplay livestreams, but BioWare has been particularly careful in terms of not giving too much of the story away.
Yeah. We gutted it for the demo so not everything is story spoiled https://t.co/7ki5gL0dud

The chief producer also revealed that this same careful approach has been taken with the creation of the game’s demo, of which there will be two versions.
The VIP demo, which is available to everybody that has pre-ordered the game or has EA Access between January 25-27, or the basic demo which will be live between February 1-3.
