will anthem have melee combat

★★ Newbie

I wondered if anthem had any sort of melee combat? I really enjoy close-up slasher games and thought it would be awesome to implement that in the game.

The game has an wide array/arsenal of Javelin exosuits, so hopefully at-least some of them are dedicated to melee combat but only time will tell.

It's hard to say at the moment but this coming weekend on the 9th EA Play will be happening and they said they would reveal more about Anthem. So hopefully we'll find out about this too, because melee can be really cool.

When i watched the presentation video on 2017, there was little information.

 

But with the new video, we have more information. Look at this exact minute:https://youtu.be/mumJH5BfJTk?t=63

 

 

When the Javelin lands after jumping out the wather, he/she starts striking with something that resembles a electric mace or club. So, looks like yes... there will be melee combat.

Re: will anthem have melee combat

Yes, there will be melee.

 

But a Javelin that is able to only use melee combat is confirmed as not being viable (for now)

I don't work for EA, but I adore BioWare's Mass Effect, Dragon Age & Anthem.
