BioWare shows of New IP called Anthem at this years E3

A teaser out of yesterday's EA press conference revealed a odd jungle-like setting, with a sci-fi aesthetic that ignites hope for a Destiny-Far Cry hybrid. However, it looks like you can have four players in a squad instead of three.

Hitting back, Xbox chief marketing officer Mike Nichols pointed out that around half of Xbox One owners have tried backwards compatibility, clocking up over 508million play hours in the process. Knowing BioWare, there's a lot more in store for the game beyond this already-intriguing first look. The mission we're demoed shows two players going off to explore the world together.

Wield an arsenal of Javelin exosuits, each equipped with unique weapons and abilities. Announced yesterday, we got see the game in motion.

Prior to the announcement of Anthem, word on the street was that BioWare was cooking up a Destiny-like open-world online shooter.

Little is known about Anthem thus far, but TrustedReviews has compiled all the facts on Bioware's newest epic.

A full gameplay reveal is promised for Microsoft's press conference, which takes place on Sunday June 11 at 2PM PT/10PM UK. However, according to the YouTube channel of Anthem, BioWare and Electronic Arts are looking to hit the earlier side of that timeframe, with the game planned for a spring 2018 release date. The most popular of those is likely the "Mass Effect" series. EA's event marked the beginning of E3, the biggest annual trade show in the video game industry. Not to mention, you can buy games digitally on the Xbox game store and play them on your PC with Xbox Play Anywhere.

It is unknown if this will be a permanent price drop, but knowing Microsoft, we're betting that it is.
