Anthem

https://www.theverge.com/2017/6/10/...-teaser-e3-2017

This is Biowares new game made by the same team that made the original Mass Effect trilogy. I'm on board just to see a new IP by those guys. It won't be release until 2019 apparently but I'll be following it closely.

We'll see where they take it. These guys gave me a hundred+ hours of a great experience in ME so they've more than earned the benefit of the doubt.

From a graphics point of view, it looks very impressive.

If they can impart Bioware storytelling than I'm game. Destiny and The Division tried to expand story into the loot gathering but they ultimately failed. If the intro sequence that starts the quest is an indication of how the game sets up missions then this game is very much on my radar.

The strange thing....is that the most impressive part of the demo was when the players flew through the air and then dived in the water to open up an entire area beneath it. If that's the case then I will be more than happy to explore the world they created

Yeah, that exploration gameplay looked amazing. I'm not a fan of co-op games in general, but I want to see where this goes.

As Ares said, it's EA's version of a loot shooter. It's probably not going to have any huge surprises. If they include Bioware storytelling then it could be something special.

Difficult to really gauge anything about the game yet. Have no idea about the story or if there will be an emphasis on characters/world building, or if it'll be like Destiny where all that is on the back burner. Has potential, will have to see more on it, though.

From the trailer, it does look like they are making an effort to provide some resemblance of a story.

Most games like this are very bare when it gives out missions. It's usually some sort of voiceover/phone thing while this game seems to have interaction with NPC's.

Tough to say though.

Yeah, but I mean this is Bioware, their games are primarily known for characters/writing moreso than for gameplay reasons. If the main priority of the game isn't characters/writing than I have to question why Bioware even made this game.

True and it's the Edmonton office and that's the good one.

I just don't see EA releasing that trailer without having a huge story element attached to the game. And after the shitstorm EA received after ME:A, I cannot see them allowing this game to be released in that state.

This looks like EA Edmonton had help from DICE because those facial animations are straight from the Battlefield series.

Yeah the animations, and the graphics in general, were really nice.

I look forward to seeing more of the game over the next year or so.

But doesn't The Old Republic have loot gathering but still tell a story? I think we're letting Destiny and Division get to us.

Yes, from what I understand.

The Division did have a story and the missions were pretty good.

While the game does look nice, I have to say I am disappointed. Iím just not a big fan of this genre and itís a shame to see one of my favorite developers pour most of their recourses and top talent into a game like this rather than an RPG. This is what Andromeda should have looked like. It seems Bioware has mostly moved on from story RPGs and that is very disappointing.

Still, the game does look like it could be fun. Iíll probably pick it up.

Well they showed 6-8 minutes of an Alpha mission. For all we know it could be just like Mass Effect or Dragon Age with a huge story that branches depending on your choices in and out of combat.

I canít see choices having any large meaningful impact in a MMO game such as this.
