That's a disappointment for anyone whose internet connection isn't up to the task, as the person Darrah was responding to indicated. It also reinforces that, while solo play is possible, it is not what BioWare is going for with this one (which is Destiny... it's going for Destiny, though there won't be any PvP (opens in new tab)).
We got some new Anthem gameplay footage out of EA Play today, and learned that it will not include any smooching. If you were hoping for a more traditional BioWare game, there is some good news on that front, too: a new Dragon Age and Mass Effect are both on the table, with the former being actively worked on, if by a small group.
