Watch the Anthem gameplay trailer

Brand new footage of BioWare's shared-world shooter has debuted at EA Play. It's near the tail-end of the video above, though you might want to watch all 18 or so minutes to get a better idea of what Anthem is. The most important takeaway: You can change the color of your Javelins. Phew. 

But if you want to cut to the chase and see what Anthem looks like, skip to 13:10. In it, we get a short tour through Anthem's seemingly massive world, barely stopping to fire some missiles into a massive monster's chest. It's called a Titan, and based on the UI, part of a World Event, which could be a recurring battle similar to Destiny's public events. Shortly after, we dip underwater and into a cave, where we find—well, just see for yourself. It ain't pretty. 

The footage was preceded by a new cinematic trailer, and ended with a release date reveal, now launching February 22, 2019. We're still tearing through the details, but here's everything we know about Anthem so far.

James is stuck in an endless loop, playing the Dark Souls games on repeat until Elden Ring and Silksong set him free. He's a truffle pig for indie horror and weird FPS games too, seeking out games that actively hurt to play. Otherwise he's wandering Austin, identifying mushrooms and doodling grackles.
