BioWare’s much-anticipated new IP Anthem is inching closer to release – in fact we have a date, and a bit more info from E3.

Billed as a “social, connected Action-RPG with cooperative multiplayer at its heart”, story is set to play a big part, but there will also be more lore added after release.

Up to four players will explore – and fight – in a strange and dangerous place full of wild characters. Players will create stories of their own while they play, so we’re promised that no two journeys will be identical.

‘Javelin’ exosuits will give their pilots incredible powers, coming in four different types – ‘Ranger’, ‘Colossus’, ‘Interceptor’ and ‘Storm’. They’ll all be customisable with unique paint jobs, as well as different weapons and abilities to deal with the game’s ever-changing world.

Anthem is set to be let loose on PS4 and Xbox One February 22, 2019.
