Anthem will not let squads embark on missions in groups any larger than four, at least at launch.
While four players is often the standard maximum for squad sizes in cooperative multiplayer games (Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, Tom Clancy’s The Division, etc.), some will occasionally let larger groups join up to take on an experience’s tougher challenges. This will not be the case for Anthem when it launches, according to a Twitter response by executive producer Mark Darrah.

This fan question was one of many Darrah recently tackled in an informal Q&A on his Twitter. Other Anthem details revealed through the Q&A include the Ranger Javelin being the first Javelin players will use, the order players unlock the remaining Javelins in will vary, grenades are exclusive to the Ranger Javelin, and more. These reveals follow numerous others Darrah has posted to his Twitter recently, such as the game’s use of set bonuses for its gear, and the fact that Javelins will not have individual skill trees.
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. Many have speculated that the development of this game was forced on Bioware, and if it fails, the studio will go under, but an ex–narrative director recently attempted to put these conspiracy theories to rest.
