Today BioWare released a launch trailer for its online action-RPG Anthem.
I've read the developers' answers to questions and seen enough to be confident that I'll enjoy the game. I plan to get it at release or shortly thereafter. It looks great.
The devs have really done a great job answering questions - hopping on reddit or Twitter to answer a post or such pretty quickly, gathering feedback and fixing / making changes (16 person launch bay for example). Basically keeping people up to date on things daily.
Day one as well. Disagrees for you saying day one lol, wth is wrong with people on this site.
What's wrong with disagreeing?? It just means those people won't be getting it day one.
Maybe some of us are not getting it day one because it's a little lackluster. Not exactly rocket science is it?
Me too! Loved the demo. Trailer looks epic. Already pre-ordered.
Same. Went digital on x
I love how these multiplayer "work together" trailers are done in such a way where you're like "with my friends...that would never play out like that". Looks pretty and the flying looks cool...that's it.
It didn't look anything like that in my demo playthrough lol, ie oh this looks alright followed by loading screen oh, then battle combat was like pepper enemy with bullets, while reloading press R1 followed by by L1 then bk to pepper enemy with bullets while waiting for R1/L2 to charge rinse and repeat. I'll pick it up Xmas time for sp only tbh
I used more abilities than bullets. Play around with / learn your abilities / change classes if you dont like it, and it's not just a straight shooter with a few abilities mixed in.
Ok, so let me stay by saying I love my Xbox One X. But was anyone else underwhelmed by the graphics? Division 2 Beta looks spectacular. The detail in Anthem felt a little lacking
You must have been playing it on PS4 then. Oh R1, L1, yeah I see the problem lol. Kidding but it played amazing on the x.
@-Foxtrot "Looks pretty and the flying looks cool...that's it." Come on, Fox... You know you want it! XD
No...unlike some I stick to my guns I don't think it looks good, it didn't play that well, it seems generic, not up to the main Bioware teams standards and I refuse to support EA knowing MTs will come in some form.
You’re right! What they aren’t showing is the fact that within 2 hours you will have seen the entire game, the microtransactions that will be abundant, and the price to add the next expansion.
Looks awesome - I need it.
If the game lives up to the trailer it could be pretty fun!
Most likely the absolute worst version of Ironman ever produced.
I take it that the disagrees are from people who aren't old enough to know Black Sabbath?
Looks crazy. That spinning move from the green javelin at 0:40 is pure porn.
So that's what it looks/plays like on a £2,000 pc
Get Apex Legends instead far better than this broken garbage.
Pretty different kinds of games actually. Anthem appeals to me far more.
This will be amazing and I cant wait.
Too bad that this is a mobile game disguised as a AAA console game. The main point is to upgrade or better the looks of your Javelin, nothing more, nothing less, just so you can peacock to your buddies.
Yeah, but it's EA......I think I'll pass.
Cool trailer. Love the javelin designs.
Though it sucks gotta wait longer due to getting it on PS4, still looking forward to playing it.
How will you live? At least when you do play you'll have a largest console community to play with. That's a positive - right?
I can’t wait to drop several hundred $$$ on loot boxes and microtransactions. It’s going to be great!
Day zero lol
I can either have this or Battlefield 5 with the RTX 2060 I purchased. The truth is, I want neither and as for Anthem it's just bad all round. Just looking at this game from a technical pov, it's really a poor performer. Check out what Digital Foundry has to say about it: it can't maintain 60 FPS at low settings on the pc, let alone consoles! They tested this on systems running with the GTX 1060 and RX 580 at 1080p. Anthem is underwhelming to say the least, from a technical pov...and I suspect from just about any pov. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
A spectacular downgrade
I’ll be playing it
Not gonna lie, this game looks visually stunning. I am tempted to buy it Day One and I hardly ever do that with games.
Weird..... trailer didn't crash once..
Anyone know what the story is about? The gameplay and graphics look excellent, but a well told story is also important.
I'll wait till a price drop, and only if they fixed the bugs.
A spectacular launch for a doomed-from-birth game.
