Anthem

Anthem is a MMO role-playing game developed by Bioware and was released in 2019.

In the game Anthem you live on an unnamed planet filled with advanced tech relics called The Anthems of Creations. You are a Javelin pilot mercenary, called a Freelancer, who is part of an expedition to stop an Anthem of Creation device. But the expedition goes horribly wrong and you are one of the few survivors. 2 years later you have made the city, Fort Tarsis, you home base working with others as a Freelancer. On one of your missions you uncover an enemy leader called The Monitor and his plan of taking the power of the Anthem of Creation. You are one of the few that can stop him. Good luck.

The way you fight and explore in Anthem is with the use of your Javelin. Javelin’s are exosuits to help the rider survive the wilds and take down enemies. You can fly, swim, and run all over the worst terrain with a full kit of weapons and gear to deal damage. There are 4 types: Ranger, Storm, Colossus, or Interceptor. Ranger is the all around combat javelin and the most versatile. Colossus is known to be the tank with it being specialized in defense and heavy artillery including a cannon. Storm is more of the “mage” javelin, using seal technology to blast enemies with the power of the Anthem. Lastly the Interceptor, the one I love, is the quick and sneaky javelin. Using its fast speed and flight you can quickly attack and evade enemy strikes with the ultimate ease.

One of the features that Bioware took most of its time developing was making the Javelins fly. They did amazing work and it is so much fun to explore the map and see everything that is hidden.

Sadly Anthem was a game that, I believed, was rushed at the end to release it to the public. There is not much story content and even though the map was very complex it was on the smaller size. The game fully right now is a very strong backbone but there is not a lot of meat to the game and I hope there will be story updates in the future.

Anthem is available for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
