Anthem from Bioware
« on: June 10, 2017, 03:39:58 PM »
Very short trailer here, with more to be revealed at E3 in the next few days. So far we know there is a giant wall, monsters, a sci-fi theme and power armor.

Will be keeping an eye on this one with interest.

Never played Destiny and I'm not sure I will - mainly because I wouldn't want to play it on my own and my friends probably won't get it at this stage. But this is more The Division than it is Destiny (although The Division was also trying to be 'like' Destiny) and I really enjoyed my time with the Division so this could be cool

Cringe-worthy how staged the gameplay trailer was during the MS conference.

Anything with power armor is pretty much an instant buy for me.

I genuinely thought "Anthem from Bioware" meant they had released some sort of company song for a second. Then I realised it's just some new game. Disappointing.

Is it the imperial death match?

After the shitshow Bioware's last two releases have been I cannot say I'm even cautiously optimistic. I'm firmly in the realm of guilty until proven innocent, i.e. Prove to me that you are making a good game not one to sell to the brainwashed masses

Did you play Andromeda, or just take somebody's word for it? If you played, how much?

IOW, I disagree. See my review at http://grogheads.com/forums/index.php?topic=19143.90 (scroll down).

People also sometimes forget that Bioware is made up of several studios. AFAIK, Anthem is being made by Bioware Edmonton who are the original Bioware studio and who made the Mass Effect Trilogy and the Dragon Age games.

Bioware Montreal made Mass Effect: Andromeda though, and before that they made the Mass Effect DLCs.

So there's still hope, but The Division encountered a lot of problems trying to do a game almost exactly like this. Hopefully Bioware/EA observed that process and learnt.
