BioWare’s been teasing a new live-action short for Anthem all week, and it’s finally dropped. It’s called Conviction, and it’s credited to Neill Blomkamp, Oats Studios, and BioWare. It feels more like a lore or backstory trailer than a true short story, and given the YouTube comments I don’t think I’m alone in feeling as if the plot wasn’t clearly communicated, but it’s intriguing all the same.
Those of you who’re used to Bungie’s tongue-in-cheek, joke-stuffed Destiny trailers are definitely in for a treat here, as BioWare’s done the exact opposite with Anthem. Will it actually convince anyone to buy? That’s another thing entirely. Enjoy.
