5 things we learned from Anthem's E3 2018 presentation

The Javelins can be customized to suit the player as well. Community response to EA's decision resulted in the publisher backtracking on the extent to which additional paid add-ons would affect the player's experience in "Battlefront II" and future titles. According to EA, there will be no loot boxes, similar to Battlefield V's lack of them. Of course, the biggest reveal was that the Anthem release date is February 22, 2019, on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Anthem, the newest game from Mass Effect and Dragon Age developer Bioware, was teased at E3 2014 and revealed properly at E3 past year.

It will come with a persistent online world, four player co-op, customisable Javelins and a game built to have story content added as things expand. "Instead of coming out of the gate and sprinting like we really wanted to, we had to take a step back and make sure that we were delivering a game that players really wanted". This release date is for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Many see it as the successor to BioWare's Mass Effect series, which has been killed off for the time being.

What may first strike you when you see the new and exciting trailer shown off by the company will be the slightly muted graphics compared to previous looks we got for the game. They have taken a step back, overhauled the progression and changed all loot boxes to cosmetic items only, adding a new hunt mode which has been hugely popular so far, and are now in the process of updating the squad system to improve they way the game is played. Jedi: Fallen Order is set to launch holiday 2019, so it's more than a year away. The game will cast players as Freelancers, specialised pilots of Javelin suits.

Nabil Fekir’s move to Liverpool is now OFF
Numerous reports have cited Liverpool's attempt of lowering Fekir's transfer fee as the main reason Lyon scrapped the move. There were doubts as to whether the playmaker would pass a medical with the Premier League side due to a knee injury.

Perhaps the most anticipated game EA talked about is the BioWare blockbuster Anthem that is coming in February.

"I would say a majority of the people at BioWare are working on Anthem, but we do have people who are figuring out what a next Dragon Age would look like".

We also find out about the Anthem from the title, although that's just as vague.

"We are going to have some cosmetics and vanity items that you're going to be able to purchase, but you're always going to know what you're going to buy before you spend any money on it".
