BioWare's Anthem Release Month Revealed in EA Investor Call

Electronic Arts reports FY18 financial results

First of all, we learn that the game will be showcased live at EA Play in June, so we're soon going to get a sizable taste of what it'll look like.

"Each word of this mission is carefully chosen. Specifically, 'What if I don't want to play with randos?' 'What if I don't have friends that I play games with?' And, 'I like to be the one making choices in my story-if it's multiplayer, won't the story get watered down?'" In the report, EA CEO, Andrew Wilson, spoke a little bit about the publisher's plans for Anthem, saying that there will be ways for the community to "play early", which will enable BioWare to "shape and refine the game with their input and feedback". We believe the platform can do all those things. If you're like me and have followed this studio for nearly 2 decades filled with wonderful adventures such as Jade Empire, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Star Wars, and much more, then you know that this company is no stranger to building incredibly immersive worlds to get lost in. Whether it was playing online with friends in games like their Star Wars entries, or geniunely connecting with NPCs (Looking at you, Fenris!), there is an emotional element within these entire universes created that means something, that are special.

"Companionship means that our stories are always presented as shared experiences". In a community update on the Bioware Blog, Casey Hudson talks Anthem and the developer's "innovative" approach to storytelling in their upcoming game.

At times those friends are other players, and sometimes they're fictional characters. He feels that people are concerned about the multiplayer nature of the game because this issue has not been solved well before. Regardless of that, BioWare aims "to capture the special feeling of being on a journey with memorable companions".

When it comes to Anthem, every dimension will offer "something new" whether it be stories and co-op and it will feature constantly evolving gameplay and "it's a fantastic social experience", according to Wilson. Since it is new IP, we're being conservative in how we're thinking about it. So despite their very public problems with games like Star Wars: Battlefront II and Need For Speed Payback they still experienced an increase in business thanks to digital sales and evergreens like Federation Internationale de Football Association.

With the game possibly getting a beta though, fans may not have to wait until March to play it.
