BioWare debuts Anthem videos detailing story and progression

Check out the newest Anthem video that explores story, progression, and customization.


BioWare's latest Anthem-centric video clip recently released, and it's chock-full of plenty of new information about the online multiplayer game's story, progression, and customization.

The trailer, Part 1 of the new "This is Anthem" series, is all about Anthem's inner workings, with plenty more information for folks looking forward to Anthem to check out. This video doesn't break out any new information per se, but acts as a bit of a recap to get players up to speed on what's going on with the various inner workings of the game's systems. There's a lot to keep track of, after all.

If you're just now getting into the Anthem hype, this is a good place to start watching to get caught up. Though the game has been mysteriously underrepresented in terms of hype videos and other streams beyond the occasional developer stream – it seems oddly quiet around here in regard to the Javelin suit-centric title, which is already debuting this February. It follows a group of characters known as "Freelancers" who leave civilization behind to explore in souped-up suits that you'll be able to fully customize to your liking when the game debuts. There's certainly a lot to those suits, and they appear to be what makes up much of the backbone of the game for folks who like to make things truly "theirs" while exploring – would be cool if we could add our own decals, for one.

The next video, Part 2 of the "This is Anthem" series, focuses on the series' endgame, as well as Strongholds, Anthem's "expanding shared-world," and possibly ideas for what BioWare has in store for the game after launch. The developer hasn't shown off much, if any, of the potential endgame content, so it'll be exciting to see.

Anthem is set to release February 22 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
