Anthem will be shown at E3, according to Bioware and EA, but they need to be careful what they announce or risk killing the game entirely.
why are they showing a game that's already released?
Presumably, they're going to be showing off some new content? Hopefully, it's free as an "apology" otherwise I don't know what they're thinking.
All new content was always going to be free, they said that long before launch.
Beyond the micro-transaction store, all content is suppose to be free. It is just that they haven't stuck to their release schedule, let alone improved a bugged out game with a severe lack of end game. Hell, they claimed they were going to communicate more. Last one was saying no new info... They need to show they are listening to player feedback and rework a lot of their sh!t, or this game is going to die off completely. E3 is one of their last chances to win people back.
All new content was delayed with no release date given like a week or two ago. Doubt its gonna magically pop up at E3 and/or not be a sky recolor.
It definitely won't be a total rework. I'd imagine they would say we got new events and strongholds and a location, and then just say something like oh we also fixed loot. That's pretty much it.
I hope not, even tho loot to me is the biggest problem with the game. Boring loot and terrible drop rates need a lot of work.
Anything less than a FF14 like event won’t help this game. I’m their target audience and when people like me want nothing to do with your game it’s a wrap...
I agree 100%. I was an avid supporter of this game..I still like it, gameplay, concept the whole 9 yards..but the lack of content and the boring loot/drop rate made me stop for over a month now. I haven't traded my copy as of yet, because I'm waiting to see what they announce at EA play, anything less than the full gambit of new features, loot, areas and a lot of end game content and or a big destiny overhaul, then it's off to gamestop/gamestore with it.
agreed. I would be happy with just a better drop rate. I don't mind going out and doing the missions with how damn pretty the world is.
I would agree but EA isn’t the company that’s gonna put the money down to make that happen. They will give you small updates and fixes while saying “We are committed to Anthem”
Either a rework or the whole game is being scrapped and everyone's getting a credit voucher for any new release is my guess
Anthem has no business at E3. They have no time to do anything but work on the craptastic game that was Anthem. This is the second multimillion dollar mistake from Bioware and they should keep their mouths shut like Sean Murry did and fix their game.
Somewhat agreed. I do wish there was more communication from them.
I'd rather hear nothing and see results. They have shown ineptitude at every moment they have spoken since Anthem launched and the article exposing the development or lack there of Anthem went through over 7yrs. Bioware, for lack of a better example, is as smug as Gerald Broflovski smelling his own farts. They believe in their own crunch bullshit so much it has ruined them as a studio.
Anthem came out too early should've saved it for next gen. Where loading is much faster. Better polish, more content due to additional Dev time. Game would've been perfect for a next gen launch or 2021 release. Definitely ain't being reworked. I'd rather scrape it then rework it I'd I was them. All they can do is continuing working on it and hopefully have it complete by next gen 😂 Anthem the complete edition. Only on Ps5 and Xbox 4
It has nothing to do with what gen it released in. It was always broken at a fundamental level with no direction from studio heads. Four more years wouldn't even save it with modern Bioware at the helm. Even the stats are meaningless, PS5 wouldnt save that. They had over half a decade to come up with content and THIS is what they produced, and you think they deserved even more time?
Just designing the game was ambitious. Many of it's flaws are on a technical level. I believe next gen would have helped a lot
Anthem is a really great game that just had a bad launch. The fact that it'll be at E3 adds a little bit more hope for me. I loved the game and had a fun time but I've been worried it was gonna die and not reach it's full potential because of the idiots and sheep in social media.
Man I know you've been working overtime trying to be one of Anthem's few champions but you really need to say something different and/or relevant...or do everyone a favor and give it a rest.
Some people have incredibly low standards but Germ_the_Nobody's standards are as low they get.
Germ's probably replaying Life of a Black Tiger as we speak, muttering about how it's the most misunderstood game of our generation.
Does anyone even care? Let's say there was a rework are there actually enough people who would care enough to come back?
If it was an FF14-like overhaul I'd play it again to at least see the differences.
This is EA... no joke, I think they would close down Bioware before they would rework the game that much.
What a mess, I'm fed up with hearing this dumb meaningless name.
At this point, it might be more beneficial to do a total rework.
It seems to me most of EAs presentations at E3 this generation have been apologies like the battlefront 2 apology or hate towards the fans for pointing out flaws in games like bfv either way they keep releasing mp based titles and keep saying they are"disappointed" with sales
They risk killing that which is already dead 🤔
They need to relaunch Anthem as Anthem 2.0 definitive with huge changes and new content and an expanded universe. A relaunch with everything fixed is the only thing that will save it.
Why even bother?
RIP Bioware. Oh, who am I kidding. They had their eulogy ages ago.
Can't ruin something that has already been long dead for a while
Bioware was all ready ruined the day EA bought them
watch them trying and succeeding reselling this dumpster fire to existing owner's as Anthem 2.0, with it's very own deluxe edition, FIFA Madden is at the root of all this BS EA has created for themselves and they're just blind to the fact bc all they can see is dollar signs, why improve on a game by just updating a games roster along with some gameplay tweaks and improved lighting when you can charge people every upfront a full retail price along with pedo caches after the fact
This is becoming pathetic :), now they are trying to rework the game to be what it should have been with enough time and bigger budget, maybe, just maybe, jokes on them.
Unless it's getting a drastic overhaul like no mans sky did, they need to let this die and learn from there mistake.
This is a retarded headline....
anthem is already ruined , i lost hope for one of my favourite game series , dragon age :(((
