Climb into your Javelin exosuit, team up, and take on the challenges of survival in a mysterious world left unfinished by the gods in Anthem.

 

WHAT IS ANTHEM?

 

Anthem is a connected, social, co-op action-RPG, where you and up to three other players can explore a vast, ever-changing, and dangerous world together.

It has all the story you expect from a BioWare game, set in a constantly evolving world where you and your friends can work together to take on dangerous challenges, uncover secrets, and protect humanity from unpredictable conditions, hazards, and enemies.

 

WHAT CAN I DO IN THE GAME?

 

Work with your Pit Crew to assemble high-tech, hand-crafted, uniquely powerful suits of powered armor. Join with up to three other players on expeditions beyond the safety of Fort Tarsis. Explore vast ruins, battle deadly enemies, and claim otherworldly artifacts. With every mission, you and your Javelin exosuit grow in power.

 

Spoiler

Choose and customize your exosuit
Whenever you venture into the world beyond Fort Tarsis, you’ll equip one of your exosuits known as Javelins. These are incredibly powerful and customizable, with strong defensive and offensive qualities. Suiting up in your Javelin gives you the ability to explore underwater, rocket across the sky, and travel at speed over land. Your choice of Javelin determines your role in the battles ahead. As a pilot, you’ll increase both your own skills and the powers of your exosuit as you defeat enemies and gain experience in-game.

 

Triumph as one
Teaming up and socializing with other players is at the heart of Anthem. You can explore the world solo, and your story is yours alone, but you will need help from others to take on bigger challenges in the game. Drop Contracts to recruit other players to help you defeat more powerful enemies. Smart matchmaking ensures you’ll never have to fight alone, and you’re rewarded for teamwork and for your individual contributions.

 

Explore an ever-changing world of danger and mystery
Anthem takes place in a visually spectacular, open world that’s powered by EA’s Frostbite™ game engine. The world is both beautiful and deadly, and it evolves over time to bring new challenges to even the most seasoned Freelancers. And that’s not all -- a shadowy faction is searching for an ancient technology left behind by the gods. If they find it first, it could mean the end of humankind. Rising as one is the Freelancers’ best chance for survival.

 

Share your accomplishments
As you rank up and defeat powerful enemies, you’ll collect loot and hit gameplay milestones that unlock items to customize your Javelins, and the weapons, gear and equipment that go with them. Use these to make your Javelin unique and wear your in-game accomplishments with pride.

 

 

WHEN CAN I PLAY IT?


Anthem is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on February 22, 2019. Pre-order to get VIP access to pre-launch demos and play the game before it launches.

Can anyone confirm if the progress we made on this VIP DEMO, and the OPEN DEMO will be transferred to the game after the release?

It won't, the earliest that game progress will be continuous is the actual launch of Origin Access Premier and the EA/Origin Access early-play 10-hour trials on February 15th.
