IGN has shared a new video, giving us an early look at Anthem Freeplay Expeditions where players can explore the world to find world events, lore items, bosses, and more.
In Anthem, up to four players explore and battle in a dangerous, mysterious place populated by great characters and a unique BioWare story. Players will also create stories of their own while they play, so no two journeys are the same. Javelin exosuits make their pilots powerful heroes in the world, with awesome weapons and incredible special abilities that allow for combat and exploration in a hostile environment. Players will be able to customize and personalize their suits with unique paint jobs and gear so they’ll have the right tools to confront almost any situation, and look good doing it.
Players will be able to experience the game themselves prior to its official release. A VIP demo will be available on January 25th and the same demo will be open to everyone on February 1st. Contrary to other demos that are called these days “betas”, the Anthem demo will be representative of what players will experience in the game at launch day.
Anthem releases on February 22nd and the progress you make in both the VIP and the open demo will not transfer to the final game. Furthermore, the game will support NVIDIA’s DLSS, Deep Learning Super Sampling, tech, though we don’t know whether it will be supported from the get-go or via a post-launch patch.
