BioWare Game Director Jonathan Warner said not to assume Anthem won't get raid-style content. He also clarified the difference between Shaper Storms and Cataclysms.
Still gotta play this, got a code for it with my video card
They really should be talking more about what the end game content is like ahead of release.
They have. There's a trailer for it.
Here it is: https://n4g.com/news/223901...
I would imagine that as it's a MP game, raid-style content is almost guaranteed. They'll need to bring something akin to end-game to draw people into the progression and give them something to aim for.
I had such a good time playing this. I could get lost in it for hours. The more content the merrier. But before I join, I will wait for everything to be ironed out.
I didn't get into Destiny and I usually don't play a lot of games like this. Warframe is about the closest thing I play. But Anthem looks good to me. The world looks gorgeous and fun to explore, the gameplay seems to have depth and the narrative seems much better than in most games like this.
Same here. I never cared for any of them. Destiny, Division and co'. But this one lets me fly and feel bad ass. It was a wrap for me.
So it's Sea of Thieves quality. No raids, why isn't this available? Sounds and looks like they're a year from release.
Please don't compare sea of shits to this.
Agreed. This might not have raids at launch, but it has plenty of other content...Sea of Thieves only had roaming with ships trying to hit each other with cannons once every 15 minutes or so.
exactly, the VIP Access pushed me away a little with all of its issues but I am sure the final game will get more polish.
Borderlands or Diablo didn't have raids, and those were great / pretty good looters. Not every looter needs a "raid". SoT is not a fair comparison for itself or to Anthem.
Tons of games have great loot systems. I guess InTheZone is a new gamer
Borderlands was a single player story driven game with co-op. This is an online MP looter shooter like Destiny it needs a raid and raiding content.
@Shikoku, you can play the entire campaign solo. And no mention of Diablo? These games don't NEED raids at all. Destiny has set some kind of benchmark to some people that I find disturbing when that game to me was garbage. You spend $170 on the first game to experience everything the game has to offer, and then they do the same in Destiny 2 and people gobble it up. But Bungie somehow gets a pass, and in fact sets the tone for some people...lol
I have no problem with loot based games,but there needs to be more to it then just constantly grinding for loot with random drops. Which I have a feeling will be the bulk of this games content.
Yawn...another flop in the making from one of the most overrated developer.
"Also don't assume Anthem will run well, even If we tell you it will" Jokes aside, Playing the beta on both occasions the framerate Is dog shit, It was somewhat ok while on missions, but free play eats ass. Loading times were abysmal* Framerate not up to par* They've not even come out to denounce those "leaked" store prices, I sometimes watch Angry Joe, mainly his game reviews & he was saying about the price of coffee, If epic Items were to be sold for £1.50/£1.99 I'd be happy, but they won't do that, Its funny how those 2 technical issues and this are my main concerns and not endgame. If those store prices next week remain the same, and the grind Is high for'em (unreasonable length) then I'll cancel my preorder.
Yeah they did denounce the store prices they specifically said those prices were constantly changing and don't reflect the final form. I don't like the face there is Microtransactions period but at least there is no loot boxes.
Can't believe there is people willing to pay full price for a game that is 40% finished content wise.
How much content should a $60 game have? How long should a $60 game be? I wasn't aware of any standards with regard to these things. Do I get to randomly decide a game like Uncharted 4 is unfinished because it doesn't have anywhere near as much content as games like The Witcher 3, AC Odyssey and Red Dead Redemption 2? Shouldn't each individual make up their own mind about whether a game is worth it to them? I see so much hypocrisy and so many double standards on this subject.
''BioWare: Don't Assume Anthem Won't Get Raid-Style Content'' Says the devs who have not released any new raid contents for SWTOR for years. And yes releasing 1 boss per 3 months is NOT raid content.
How about focusing on a proper story?? Making every character LGTBQ does not count Bioware/EA.
Why People are always asking specific content that is another game ? If you want raids, go play destiny for god sake ... A very minor percentage of players actually played and re played the raids in destiny, i would prefer bioware to focus on puting out MORE stronghold then doing 2-3 hours raids in terms of 6-8 ... 4 man squad is just Perfect the way it is
