BioWare unveiled its next game at EA Play today—this is, as we understand it, the new IP from the Edmonton studio that was lightly teased while Mass Effect: Andromeda was in production. Thankfully, we don't have to call it 'the new IP' anymore: it's Anthem.

"The wall. It's our armor," speaks a voice in the teaser, recalling Attack on Titan. "It protects us from what lies beyond."

The teaser leaves us with tons of questions, but we won't have to wait long: The full gameplay reveal is coming tomorrow at Microsoft's press conference. Here's the full conference schedule (opens in new tab).

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
