BioWare Wants to Solve the Problem of Multiplayer Storytelling in 'Anthem'

BioWare Wants to Solve the Problem of Multiplayer Storytelling in 'Anthem'

Anthem was revealed a year ago and had a lot of hype surrounding it. How is that going to happen?

In a blog post on the BioWare site, Hudson talked about BioWare's future and how this vision fits with Anthem. "We create worlds of adventure, conflict and companionship that inspire you to become the hero of your story". You can interpret this as you will, as Hudson doesn't explain what he means. Regardless of that, BioWare aims "to capture the special feeling of being on a journey with memorable companions". Even Anthem will be set on a foreign planet.

BioWare's open-world online action game Anthem looks to be the most ambitious game the studio - and parent company Electronic Arts - have ever released, but we will have to wait quite a bit longer before we can get our hands on it. In any event, it seems like Electronic Arts has coyly stated that the the long-awaited Anthem beta is still coming, though its release window, length, and full scope still remain a mystery.

Anthem releases on March 2019 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

That line from Wilson about allowing fans to "play early" is actually garnering a good amount of online attention now, as people are trying to figure out what it means. Hudson said this narrative approach hasn't been executed well in multiplayer games before.

BioWare plans to solve the problem of multiplayer storytelling by structuring "Anthem's" entire game design around a solution. We'll be sharing details on how it works very soon. "Every battle is unique, and every mode brings its own challenges - from the way you interact with the environment around you, to compelling single-player stories, to the next level of large-scale multiplayer that spans across multiple maps and modes".

In EA's latest financial conference call, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen revealed that Anthem "will be shipped in the last quarter of the year, and in the last month of that quarter".

Now, beta and alpha tests are nothing new for EA games. If you're like me and have followed this studio for nearly 2 decades filled with wonderful adventures such as Jade Empire, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Star Wars, and much more, then you know that this company is no stranger to building incredibly immersive worlds to get lost in. That puts Microsoft's console at 29.4 million, since we know from Sony that the PlayStation 4 was on 73.6 million at the end of 2017.
