@EA_Ataashi   Will you make it interactive, on Anthem official page?

If these play out similar to the biweekly events that Monster Hunter World employs, could be quite fun.  Though, I assume we would get much more content in each iteration than those events in MHW as Anthems' timetable seems more spread out.

ACT 01:ECHOES OF REALITY [THE ONGOING NARRATIVE OF ANTHEM BEGINS]


 

  • NEW EVENTS
  • QUALITY OF LIFE
  • NEW REWARDS
  • EXPANDED PROGRESSION SYSTEM
  • NEW STRONGHOLD
  • GUILDS & LEADERBOARDS
  • NEW MISSIONS
  • THE CATACLYSM

 

True story:  I went into my local game retailer after work, today.  The two guys behind the counter who have worked for this store for over 10 years (uber gaming freaks) didn't say anything about The Division 2.  They just printed me out a beta code, for tomorrow.  I mentioned ANTHEM and their faces lit up!  They're both super-excited about it.  I was just shocked because they wouldn't even talk about The Division 2 but had so much to say about Anthem.  I have the Anthem hint book on pre-order, too, now!  Gonna be like my bible.  I know people who will want to play the Division 2 beta but to be honest the game looks boring.  Just run around and shoot stuff.  The story seems dull.  Just looks so boring.  Can't wait for Anthem!!  These two screens look so awesome!  FEBRUARY 22nd... LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Destiny 2....When the Taken King came out, Destiny was at its finest.   Why?   Because Guardians were tasked with defeating an epic threat...

Your Guardian was the star of the show.

 

The current Destiny has your Guardian as a minor bit-player in the stories of Cayde-6 and the annoying Spider.

Even the Drifter is cooler than your Guardian.

 

Anthem has created a world where your character is the central focus.

 

Fort Tarsis is there to give your character a place to craft weapons.   Get contracts.  And get ready for the next jaunt into a mysterious world that NEEDS  your character.

 

It is a subtle thing.   Players want an Avatar that is Epic.  God-Like.  It is a video game.  It is not real life.  Players want to be part of something fantastical.

 

Anthem(from my 40 or so hours of Demo gametime) is doing this.

 

Keep it up Bioware.  

 

You have a winner here.  You have created a game that is quite simply, fun.

 

Kudos.

It is quite possible that I'm the only curmudgeon here that hates being directed to A Random Developer's social media account like an eScavenger Hunt of information to get game updates.  Can't news just be posted on the official site? Disappointed

Yes, Yes, yes. I agree so much. It seems so odd that so many game companies have an official forum site but tend to use third party sites to post important information. Perhaps a "Dev tracker" locked thread where all general broadcast Dev comms (within reason of course) are posted. 

 

I personally don't have Twitter or Snapchat or Facebook (I deleted my account like millions of others) and I shouldn't have to open accounts with third parties when I inhabit the "official forum" site.
