Unbeknownst to us, BioWare has been working on the new action-RPG IP Anthem for five years, according to Aaron Flynn, general manager of BioWare. In an interview with CBC Radio, he spoke purely about the development of the game and some other tidbits that some may be confused about: So the mechanics are, there are shooting mechanics in it, it’s an action game, it’s a roleplaying game, it’s got a lot of those elements to it that let you just become a character and participate in this. It’s co-operative, so it’s our first game in a long time that you’re … Read More »

During Microsoft’s E3 presentation on Sunday night, Bioware revealed the first gameplay trailer for its new IP: Anthem – and it looks pretty impressive. The 7 minute gameplay trailer is below – and it’s definitely worth a watch. Anthem is set in a sci-fi future, where humanity is cowering behind a massive wall that “protects them from what lies beyond.” Players take on the role of Freelancers, and are equipped with a collection of exo suits called Javelins that they use to wage war outside the walls. According to the demo, they’re highly customisable – presumably both visually and in terms of the … Read More »

It’s been five years since our adventures with Commander Shephard. For most, it was a disappointing affair; having spending countless amount of hours only to have been delivered an abysmal conclusion to the series. We now have BioWare’s next instalment: Mass Effect: Andromeda, set some 600 years later, so how does it fare up to its predecessor? Set in the year 2185, man (and Turian, Asarian, Salarian and Krogan) is boldly going where no man (or Turian, Asarian, Salarian or Krogan) has ever gone before – into a whole new galaxy, thanks to ancient technology discovered on Mars.
