Aaryn Flynn talked about the next BioWare game’s story.
The general manager of BioWare was interviewed by CBC Radio, and he said the following regarding Anthem: „The story is that you are part of humanity, and you’re a member of a group called the “Freelancers”, who are out there to protect and save humanity on an alien planet far away.
It’s in a genre we call “science-fantasy”, it’s very much like Star Wars, very much like the Marvel universe where you see a lot of amazing things happening but we don’t worry too much about why they’re happening or how they’re happening, the science of it. Mass Effect is more of a real hardcore science-fiction IP; this one is much more about just having fun in a game world that is lush and exotic and sucks you in.”
Anthem is out in Fall 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
