What do we know about Anthem so far? 

Anthem will be a multiplayer title based in a futuristic setting, which brings together elements of both an action role-playing game and a third-person shooter. It has been developed by BioWare, with Electronic Arts publishing the project. 

The name of the title is actually the same name given to powerful tools used by Gods in the game to create worlds and Anthem was used to create its own location, which we will soon be able to play in. It will be your job to take on different missions across this unknown planet, fight against an enemy faction known as Dominion, protect the ancient artefacts of this world and stop all evil. 

Anthem is not expected to have any DLC or Season Pass post-launch, lead producer Michael Gamble revealed in December.

Judging by the description posted on the EA website, it seems that players will have a lot to dig their teeth into when it comes to the overall package of the Anthem world, too. 

"Upon an unfinished world, humanity struggles to survive in a savage environment full of diverse threats. Equipped with incredible Javelin exosuits, a faction known as the Freelancers seeks to tip the balance in mankind’s favor." 

Anthem took center stage at the latest EA Play event, which took place during the annual E3 trade fair in 2019, but there's since been even more information released about the game and a lot more to come as well. 

What's coming up for Anthem? 

The latest trailer available for Anthem was revealed during the 2018 Game Awards, which took place on December 6 of last year. However, you can expect to see a lot more of the game as we move closer and closer to the proposed release date. 

BioWare will be hosting another Anthem livestream on January 17 and that will be presented on their official Twitch channel, giving us a taste of the variety of weapons which will be featured. 

For those wanting to jump right into the action, Anthem will be available to play on a trial basis between January 25-27 for EA Access subscribers. Origin Access subscribers will also be able to access a VIP demo version during the same timeframe.
