  • News EA Didn't Force BioWare to Make ANTHEM, Says Former Dev

    BioWare wanted to do it

    It's no secret that EA isn't exactly held in high regard by gaming enthusiasts here on the internet. When BioWare announced that it was creating something completely new in the form of ANTHEM -- a game that appears to be a far cry from the developer's usual RPG-based output -- many onlookers suggested that EA had "forced" the...

  • E3 2018 ANTHEM Won't Have PvP, Can Be Played Single-Player, Is Always Online

    All the details

    So, ANTHEM is starting to look a lot like Destiny, but unlike Bungie's divisive sci-fi shooter, ANTHEM won't actually have any kind of competitive multiplayer component. Speaking to Game Informer, BioWare's Mark Darrah confirms that the game will only feature friendly co-op play when it comes to online shenanigans. You'll also be...

    Rumble in the jungle

    Well, here's our first real look at ANTHEM in gameplay form. BioWare showcased around four minutes of the title during EA's EA Play press conference, and the footage gives us a decent enough idea of how the third-person shooter will function. It's got a bit of exploration, some action, and a brief look at the various...

    Suit up

    BioWare's co-op enabled third-person shooter ANTHEM got a confirmed release date at EA's EA Play press conference, and as promised earlier in the year, it'll be launching in the first quarter of 2019. We actually got a "deep dive" of ANTHEM during the rather dire presser, with members of the BioWare team going over some details about the...

    Making history

    Today's the 7th November, also known as N7 Day, if you happen to be a massive Mass Effect nerd. For a decade now, BioWare has been using N7 Day to celebrate its sci-fi series, wheeling out announcements or reveals as well as spotlighting community efforts.

  • News Of Course ANTHEM Will Have a Beta Before Launch

    Why wouldn't it?

    ANTHEM, BioWare's big budget third-person shooter role-playing thing, will be getting a beta at some point before launch. The game's still a while away yet -- it's currently got a vague Fall 2018 release window -- but with projects like this, the developer is always going to be looking to the future and planning things out well in...

  • E3 2017 We Just Got a Little More Hyped for ANTHEM

    Mass Effect 1 and 2 lead writer is working on it

    We just got a bit more hyped for ANTHEM - the gritty sci-fi third person shooter that was revealed at EA's showcase. Why? Well, it turns out that Drew Karpyshyn's working on it. Karpyshyn was lead writer on both Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, and he also wrote the Mass Effect expanded universe novels...

  • E3 2017 ANTHEM Is Aiming for a Fall 2018 Release

    Nope, not spring

    Oh, so it turns out that ANTHEM is farther away than we initially thought. The sci-fi shooter from BioWare was shown off during Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference a few hours ago, and based on what we saw, the project looked reasonably far along. However, Business Wire has the game pegged for a fall 2018 release, so it's a...

  • E3 2017 Gritty Sci-Fi Open World Shooter ANTHEM Gets First Gameplay

    Mech it happen

    BioWare went ahead with a full gameplay demo of ANTHEM at Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference, and it looks pretty cool. There's a definite Destiny vibe here, with the science fiction and the shooting and the co-op and the loot, but again, it looks promising. You can check out the footage above. What do you make of ANTHEM? Suit up...

  • E3 2017 BioWare's ANTHEM Due Spring 2018, Not Exclusive to Xbox

    Important details

    BioWare's brand new intellectual property, ANTHEM, was revealed yesterday during EA's totally-not-E3 press conference. All we got was a very brief teaser trailer, so admittedly we don't have much to say about the project just yet, but what we do know is that it's going to be blown open at Microsoft's show tonight. The fact...

  • E3 2017 Gritty Sci-Fi Title ANTHEM Is BioWare's Next Game

    The makers of Mass Effect are back

    BioWare's new property was revealed earlier at EA's totally-not-E3 showcase via a brief teaser trailer. The game's called ANTHEM, and it appears to be some sort of gritty sci-fi title. It uses the Frostbite engine, and we'll be seeing more of it tomorrow at Microsoft's press conference. Got any first...

  • News Surprise! Mass Effect: Andromeda's Development Was a Mess, Says Report

    Space balls

    For many, Mass Effect: Andromeda was and still is a bitter disappointment. The title launched back near the end of March, and it was met with largely lukewarm reviews and an absolute thrashing from gamers across the internet. Almost three months later and it's barely being talked about anymore. To put it bluntly, Andromeda has...

  • News Mass Effect: Andromeda PS4 Patch 1.08 Makes Jaal Bisexual, Fixes a Few Things

    More bang for your buck

  • News Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster for PS4 May Finally Be Happening

    About time

    It's difficult to think of many last-gen properties that fully deserve to be remastered for the current generation. The Uncharted Collection is a good shout, and titles like Skyrim are arguably too popular to ignore - but the continued absence of a Mass Effect Trilogy remaster has always baffled us. This is a story that goes all the way...
