Anthem

Anthem is a science fiction RPG with MMO elements developed by BioWare Edmonton, creators of games like the Dragon Age series and Mass Effect trilogy. The game takes place on an alien planet where humanity uses a gigantic wall to keep itself safe from monsters. We play as the so-called Freelancer, a person who goes behind the wall to study the planet and protect humanity from many potential dangers. Gameplay focuses on the exploration of the game's dynamically changing world, story missions, and third-person combat. Special exosuits, Javelins, play a crucial role in the game. They are divided into several different classes and can be upgraded and modified. Anthem focuses more on co-op than on single player and uses the popular Frostbite engine.
