There are many elements of Anthem that add to the immersion of its massive open world, including how natural physics impact your Javelin exosuit.
During a narration of the recently released Anthem gameplay demo, lead producer Ben Irving explained that flying under waterfalls will cool down a player’s jet boosters, which would otherwise overheat after too much use, limiting the player’s ability to stay airborne. In a subsequent Twitter post, a fan asked executive producer Mark Darrah if- by the same logic- flying in rain would allow players to fly indefinitely. Darrah’s response was a little vague, but the answer appears to be yes.

Anthem developers have been fairly active with the feature reveals as of late. A recent stream revealed the distinct likelihood that some Javelin suits could wield swords, another stream revealed that the player damage dealt during the game’s E3 2018 demo was toned down from how it will be in the actual game, and a recent Twitter post revealed that the game’s obstructive damage indicators will be adjustable from the options menu.
Anthem is slated to launch February 22nd on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. EA/Origin Access members will get to enjoy a trial of the game early on February 15th, while those subscribed to the newly announced Origin Access Premier tier can enjoy the full game on that date.
