No Loot Boxes or ‘Pay-for-Power’ Advantages in ‘Anthem’

Above Even gamers have to eat. The line at EA Play

EA have just revealed more about Anthem during their EA play show with three of the Bioware team on stage to talk about the game, General Manager Casey Hudson, Executive Producer Mark Darrah, and Lead Writer Catheleen Rootsaert.

Battlefield V, developed by DICE, already had its own launch event but EA dropped another bombshell regarding the upcoming title of the popular franchise at E3. "Set to be BioWare's rival to Destiny, Anthem is set in a future where humanity lives in cities that are protected by freelancers who wear suits known as "Javelin" mech suits".

However, many people, amazingly, find it quite rough because Anthem won't be available to play if you have no internet connection.

As for the Legion of Dawn Edition of the game, no prices were listed for the PC, Xbox One, or PS4 versions so far.

EA's World War II shooter game recently unveiled that the new edition of Battlefield will feature a new multiplayer battle royale mode. The fan-favorite platformer Unravel now has a sequel in Unravel 2. It will have be an online game with players working together to complete quests.


E3 2018 may not officially start until next week - but you won't have to wait long to ride the hype train. It's called Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, and it's coming in late 2019.

Players can play as four different classes which are defined by their Javelin exosuits. This year Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 will get a fully licenced Championship League, Europa League and Super Cup which means all the above tournaments will be available in every game modes such as Career Mode, Ultimate Team Mode and The Journey Mode.

Other notable nuggets from the EA Play event are that there are lots of EA SPORTS titles on the way. Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 will release worldwide on all platforms on 28 September 2018.

Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 then had the spotlight, with a free trial announced for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of the game. Sitting there, watching the presentation felt more like watching a legitimate science fiction movie, rather than just watching someone else play a game. The game will not feature loot boxes but there will be cosmetic items that can be purchased. You can can change gear and weapons on Javelin, and also customised the paint jobs and geometry of the suit.

After years of shifting release windows, EA has given Anthem an official release date: February 22, 2019.
