Our old buddy Arekkz has posted new gameplay footage for ANTHEM, this time detailing some of the title's 'freeplay' elements. As reported previously, when you're not on a dedicated mission, you can leave your hub at Fort Tarsis and explore the game's world at your leisure. BioWare has said that in doing so, you may come across live events, dynamic battles, and, of course, some nice loot.

This video shows off some of those events, as players scramble to defeat a dangerous foe or band together with non-playable characters to fight off waves of enemies. We reckon the combat's looking pretty sharp, but only time will tell whether these events will lose their edge if they're frequently stumbled upon. Hopefully there's a good amount of variety in the finished release.
