Anthem


 

The skill trees players will upgrade in Anthem will not be unique to each Javelin exosuit, despite what has been relayed to us from publisher EA.

In a post on the game’s official website, it clearly states that “Javelins will each have their own separate skill tree that also progresses as each Javelin gains experience.” Considering this, a fan recently asked executive producer Mark Darrah on Twitter if skill points earned in one Javelin suit could be used to upgrade other suits, but Darrah revealed that individual Javelin suits do not have their own skill trees, and that suit progression is instead gear driven.

Understandably confused, another fan responded to Darrah’s post by citing the article, which—even more peculiarly—was supposedly based on answers from Darrah himself. Darrah confirmed that the article does say Javelins have their own skill trees, but he revealed that this is incorrect.

Given EA’s track record, and the extreme skepticism that often accompanies new properties in modern gaming, the publisher will want to be extra careful about misinformation going forward with Anthem. Gamers are not the forgiving type.

Fortunately for EA, Darrah has been effective in handling coverage of Anthem with both regularity and reasonable transparency. Since the game’s E3 2018 showcase, the producer has revealed details on the game’s branching dialogue system, level caps, environment mechanics, and more.

Anthem is slated to launch February 22nd on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with EA/Origin Access members getting to jump into the game one week early.

Contrary to what you may have read, Anthem's Javelins won't work like class systems in other RPGs.
