Anthem is a third-person co-op shooter developed by Bioware and published by EA in which you play a Freelancer who pilots mech-like exosuits called Javelins. You and your squad fly around the world, complete quests, earn and collect loot, and shoot kaiju-looking badguys.
The game is scheduled to release on 22 February 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
It is currently in alpha. No demo is scheduled, but EA has plans to grant various stages of early access throughout February.
If you pre-order or subscriber to EA Access or Origin Access you get access to the VIP demo on 1 February 2019.
Origin Access Premier subscribers will be able to play the game a week early — from 15 February.
EA Access (Xbox) and Origin Access Basic subscribers will get to play 10 hours of the game on 15 February as a “Play First Trial”.
It’s an EA game, so everyone is asking about in-game purchases… Apparently there will be cosmetics for sale, but no loot crates.
