As anthem continue to grew better in the online multiplayer aspect, I can't help but feeling the singleplayer and story as well as the world still a bit lacking. So I would like to contribute some of my suggestions.
- story: although the story is very fine at this point. I still wish to see that during the quests, some of the relevant javelin pilots will join us on as ai controlled npc in fighting. This will makes the story much more immersive and guys like harluk won't just be cutscenes npc. I also think this will somewhat establish a foundation for new player with no friends to play with yet. Random match up is OK but it's nice to enjoy the story on your own pace while not feeling alone.
- singleplayer expeditions: I get that anthem world is hostile but I still see that it sort of lack a wildlife to it. Like. Seeing bigger animals hunt smaller animals and bigger animals have a nest somewhere. This also can be use to add a hunt type quest for materials and money use for crafting. Additionally, I think getting the strider to move around a predetermined path as patrol would be a need since they can provide safe zone for player encountered high level foe and wish to run away.
-strider base/fort tarsis: I think bring back the strider base as a place to replenish your ammo and to temporarily turn in the result from your expeditions would be nice. From there you can choose to continue exploring or go back to Fort tarsis. And speaking of the fort. There should be a system that make player either use in game currency earned from quest or materials gained to repair and refuel the javelin they using. This will give the material finding and hunting quest a purpose. Another thing I wish to add is that each javelin should be explain to have a core that will act as a timer when you are outside of Fort tarsis much like how monster hunter 50 minutes time limit, and the timer will only reset when you return to tarsis but the timer stop when docking in a strider.
Lastly, if it's not too much, please make the suit up cutscenes play whenever you are out on a mission whether solo or public. Many of the players are asking for this and I'm sure not the first to mention. Also, can you guys think of a suit up cutscenes for when exiting fort tarsis, I only see one use for when you're in a strider.
Anyway, thank you for sticking with anthem. I am loving the game and I wish to see more from bioware team. I hope some of my suggestions helps and sorry for the long post.
