Still not hip on ANTHEM? If you're new to the site, I bet you don't even know Anthem was the game that got the ball rolling on this site. Hell, if you go back to our first posts you'll see mostly Anthem stuff. Well either way, the game just released Part 1 of an in-depth new trailer that covers a many of awesome tidbits that makes Anthem. . .well, Anthem.
I'm not going to go into deets, because that's what the trailer is all about about, however, I will say that based off how this trailer explains gear; Anthem seems closer to The Division than it does Destiny. Which is what fans seem to be comparing it to the most. This makes Anthem even more exciting for me because while Destiny was dying. The Division was growing and becoming the best version of it's self. So I can't wait.
There's also another interesting point the game makes in regards to free-play. They say "run into other players on the map or call in a friend..." This leads me to believe that other players will be roaming the world on the same server you are on. Which I was initially lead to believe wasn't possible. Admittedly I haven't been following the development as closely as I had wished, but if this is the case, that is glorious news, Especially since Fort Tarsis is all about "my story".
Anyway check the trailer our below. They talk story, customization, character progression, and so much more. So if you're unhinged about Anthem, this is a must watch. However, even if you're still on the fence, this is a good video to help get you over. One side or another.
Do keep in mind this is just 1 part. Part 2 has plans to talk to us about the shared world, end game, and strong holds (their version of Raids?) Anthem will release February 22, 2019. Tell us what you think about the game in the comments section below.
