BioWare published a new trailer for Anthem at PAX West today, this one focused on the game world and just what you’ll be doing in this “reinvention” of multiplayer real-time storytelling content. If you cup your hand to your ear, you can hear remnants of the old BioWare fourth pillar.
“At the heart of Anthem is the concept of Our World, My Story – the distinctive combination of a shared, dynamic world and a personal story. Discover how these two elements help create a connected world that remains unique to every player.”
However, it seems clear that the NPCs you’ll be interacting with aren’t exactly what fans of, say, Mass Effect might expect; the conversations you’ll have with missiongivers in Fort Tarsis – shown in the video – won’t actually have any impact on the overarching story. But damn, does it look cool. Oh yeah, and it’s gorgeous. Launch is still slated for February 22nd, 2019.
