Anthem


 

We’ve seen a fair amount of missions from the upcoming Anthem, but in a recent IGN First video, fans get their first taste of what it’s like to simply poke around the game’s open world.

IGN features producer James Duggan takes fans through eight minutes of Anthem‘s Freeplay Expedition gameplay. This mode allows players to explore the world and collect new gear through discovery or randomized World Events, which can be enjoyed solo, in a squad, and/or alongside other random players you meet out on the frontier.

As for the game’s more structured mission content, a full co-op mission was recently revealed, also in an IGN First. The mission is titled The Lost Arcanist, which was the same one teased during the developer’s Paris Games Week livestream.

Anthem is slated to launch February 22nd on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, dropping one week early for EA/Origin Access members. Bioware will host an Anthem livestream later this week where fans can learn more about the game’s weapon arsenal.
