EA Announces Release Date for Anthem

During today's explosive EA Play 2018 announcement, Anthem took center stage, with an enormous chunk of new footage surrounding BioWare's upcoming title. Battlefield V will put players into the chaos of World War II, bringing the franchise full circle back to where it all started.

You can find all of the new images for Anthem in the gallery below.

It'll come out simultaneously for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, though it's a safe bet that EA Access and Origin Access will offer their usual Play First Trials several days earlier on Xbox One and PC respectively.

So outside of the release date, what else do we know? You can switch between these for any given mission, it's not a permanent choice. The game was meant to be a dynamic, living world game that could allow for you to have friends drop in and drop out of the story you experience. Also worth mentioning are some of the different locales and characters that we will likely run into over the course of playing the game. "They also left behind the Anthem of Creation which creates violent storms, mutates creatures". The only game with a chance to receive as much screen time as Anthem is probably the recently announced Battlefield V.

Players will get to be a freelancer pilot working with the citizens of Targus to figure out the secrets of the world and survive a looming presence of evil as you confront this world. "It gives us an opportunity to drop in an event that changes the game play for everyone". Put on your Javelin suit, boost out into the wilderness, and you can team up with other players again.

BioWare has confirmed "no loot boxes" and "no ability to pay for power" within Anthem's wholly-cosmetic DLC model, but the dev didn't make clear exactly what kind of season pass or DLC chapter content might be sold for the game at a later time.

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