It appears that Bioware’s new open-world action RPG, Anthem, will not be released this year. According to Kotaku, the game has been delayed and is now planned for an early 2019 release. Moreover, and as Kotaku’s sources claimed, the Fall 2018 release window that EA revealed at E3 2017 was never realistic.
Anthem is powered by the Frostbite 3 Engine and will allow players to team up with friends as Freelancers — the bold few with the courage to leave civilization behind and explore a landscape of primeval beauty.
Players will be able to wield an arsenal of Javelin exosuits, each equipped with unique weapons and abilities. Players can band together with friends, confront the dangers you find, and grow in power with every step.
It’s also worth pointing out that the game will not be using EA’s dynamic difficulty adjustment according to BioWare’s creative director, Brenon Holmes.
