The second part in BioWare’s This Is Anthem video series highlights the experience’s endgame and all that awaits players when the main mission is over.
Beating Anthem‘s story is far from the end of players’ adventures. Once players hit level 30, which should synchronize with their completion of the story campaign, three new difficulties will be unlocked. These new difficulties will make for the game’s most daunting challenges, with greater rewards for greater difficulties. The game’s very best gear will be earned in the endgame, whether unlocked outright or built through the game’s crafting system.
With all story missions checked off, players will still have Challenges, Contracts, Strongholds, and Freeplay to keep them occupied. Activities like Contracts–particularly the multipart Legendary ones–will reward new crafting blueprints and materials, allowing players to further expand their arsenal. Even if the most dedicated players manage to burn through this content, the game will be regularly updated with new content, such as the Cataclysm events, introducing new enemies and changes to the environment.
The breadth of Anthem‘s endgame can be appreciated by checking out the new video below.
The previous This Is Anthem installment focused on what comes before the endgame, namely story, progression, and customization. From this previous episode, fans can learn how to tackle the game’s story missions, what ways they can personalize the appearance of their Javelin, and more.
Anthem launches on February 22nd for players across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but depending on your platform, you could get to try the game out early. EA recently tried to clear up the game’s release schedule with a chart, but it mainly just emphasized how crazy the whole thing is.
