Anthem is a BioWare developed game in which multiple players can take part exploring a vast open-world alien environment together. As you play along, you discover new areas, encouraging you to go out of your safety zone and explore further afield. The main characters are freelancers, whose purpose it is to embark on missions that ensure the safety of mankind. These characters make use of mechanical, Iron Man-like exosuits, known as Javelins, to venture out into the unknown planes of their world, suits that are fully customisable by the player. Each suit has its own play style; there are two classes of suits, the Rangers and the Colossus, the first having abilities that are equal and the Colossus being the heavy duty, power suit. A multitude of aliens inhabit the world of Anthem, big and small, and not all of the enemies are aliens, with the characters facing human enemies also. Anthem will be released sometime in 2018 on PS4 and Xbox One.
