E3 2018: New Anthem Gameplay Shown Off

What Time Is EA's E3 2018 Press Conference

What Time Is EA's E3 2018 Press Conference

EA Play is in the rearview mirror and it was largely okay.

The world of Anthem, where players assume the role of a mercenary known as a "freelancer", takes place in "a world left unfinished by the gods", packed full of primordial and technological problems.

The highly anticipated action title is set for release on February 22, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. This includes titles that we know about like Battlefield V and Anthem but also had plenty of new titles to show us. Players will wield an arsenal of Javelin exosuits, each equipped with unique weapons and abilities. Respawn offered zero gameplay of this new game on the EA Play stage.

But a solid date would be a massive bonus to fans who are looking at what to buy next year. There are friendships. Some of the stuff we did with Mass Effect-the Citadel DLC specifically-there was a lot of friendship moments.


Warner replied: "Yeah we'll have a beta!"

It's unclear whether the Anthem beta period will be an open beta or a closed beta. Originally slated to release in 2018, Anthem has been pushed back to an early 2019 release. After releasing the decidedly unimpressive Mass Effect: Andromeda and then miring themselves a huge debacle around the pay-to-play loot boxes in Star Wars Battlefront 2, EA's reputation is once again scraping the bottom of the barrel.

EA's trialling a streaming service which'll let users play their games on any device, anywhere - as long as there's a decent internet connection. Of course not! NBA Live will be released on September 7 this year and from what we can see from this trailer it's going to be the most impressive release in the series yet. Unlike Destiny's Tower, a social space that always brims with players dancing around and/or ignoring each other, you'll have this little part of the world to yourself (aside from the NPCs, obviously).

EA is working on a Cloud-based game streaming service, made by a new EA team based out of Israel.
