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 able to tackle the title alone if you want, and yes, there will be microtransactions. However, Darrah states that additional purchases will be cosmetic only, and you'll be able to see exactly what you're buying. No loot boxes, in other words.

Again, like Destiny, ANTHEM will also require an online connection, meaning that you won't be able to play unless you're connected to the internet. Other smaller details include confirmation of a character creation system, and your hero will be voiced.
