BioWare: ‘Anthem is unlike anything we’ve ever done’

Game Informer is enjoying a heapload of exclusives on BioWare’s upcoming Anthem, including an interview with the game’s leads. The studio said that the world players encounter is “unfinished,” with artifacts and mysteries left behind by mysterious entities that used to reside on the planet.

“People are living in a world where things are turning on and causing not only destruction but actual creation,” said Executive Producer Mark Darrah. “This is a world that was in the middle of being created.”

BioWare talked about the creation of this brand-new IP, a lengthy process that has taken six years already. “Anthem is unlike anything that BioWare has ever done,” said Producer Mike Gamble. “What we really wanted to do with Anthem was to explore different kinds of gameplay.”

Darrah added more info yesterday too, tweeting to players that multiple freelancers will be rollable per account, gear drops are based on your overall freelancer level, you can’t swap loadouts in the field, and the game will have multiple modes a la Destiny.

Check out two of these interviews after the break!

It doesn’t look all that original to me. Destiny, Titanfall, Firefall tossed in a blender.

They haven’t put a foot right since Dragon Age 1. I am not expecting much.

Yeah, yeah, it’s going to change my life, drive the kids to school, solve world peace…

Whatever… How about you launch the game first. We have no reason, none at all, to trust you.

I’m not bitter. I’m a jaded realist.

Looks like high production FireFall tho…

My thought as well. Been missing the jetpack open world. Hopefully Anthem will deliver.

I’m more excited for the Division 2, which tells you something because the story of the Division was awful, but at least it as some sort of identity as a game.

First BioWare game ever that I’m not hyped to play and am totally ambivalent about. I’m also bitter over them gutting the SWTOR staff to support this game. I’ll check it out eventually, but only after it’s been out for a while and all the reviews have come in.

Being released 3 weeks before Division 2… I think I’ll stick with Division 2’s inevitable open beta at roughly the same time… I’m not interested in taking another round trip on the overhype train on it’s next stop to disappointmentsville.

Did division 1 ever solve its hacking problems? It was a big deal a couple years ago, and I think that’s the game some people were calling unsolvable.

Sorta but not quite. The hacking in the PVP is still going on… but they’re better now at sniping the hackers upon reporting. The must have an intern sitting behind the wheel at peak hours because upon reporting a hacker (legit hacker) you’ll see them go *poof* within about 10 minutes.
