Anthem official artwork showing four different characters

BioWare's co-op focused action-RPG Anthem is set to arrive this February 22nd for both PC and consoles. It'll bring with it a variety of jetpacks which you can use to slam into every nearby wall, numerous weapons and gear to min-max, bad guys to shoot straight in the face with ridiculously oversized guns, and perhaps most interestingly of all, storytelling that is supposed to be quite similar to BioWare's previous games.

If you're wondering what all of this looks like in gameplay terms, allow me to share with you the recently posted "Story, Progression, and Customization" preview. It's quite an curious video, so if you're even remotely interested about Anthem, I'd say it's well worth a peek:

While my initial impression of Anthem was so low it was practically dredging the seabed, I have to admit that these past few videos have piqued my curiosity. I still feel it's all a bit too generic and "safe", especially when it comes to the character design, but there is definitely enough interesting things happening with the combat to make Anthem worth a closer look. Who knows, it might just end up being a pretty darn solid shoot & loot type of game, and I certainly wouldn't complain about having more co-op games to choose from! 

Whatever the case may be, you can learn more about Anthem and what it has to offer by visiting the official website. And just for good measure, I'll leave you with an earlier (and rather lengthy) preview discussing items and customization. Enjoy!
