E3 2018 may not officially start until next week - but you won't have to wait long to ride the hype train. The event will commence with a press conference at 11:00 PM PT / 2:00 PM ET on Saturday, June 9th, where the publisher will show off all of the games it has in store for the coming months.

EA have just revealed more about Anthem during their EA play show with three of the Bioware team on stage to talk about the game, General Manager Casey Hudson, Executive Producer Mark Darrah, and Lead Writer Catheleen Rootsaert. The name of the title is derived from the game's morally grey force called "the Anthem of Creation". The reveal didn't include hard proof of BioWare's promises about story content in the game, however, particularly BioWare's onstage assurance that Anthem can wholly work as a single-player experience. But we're finding it doesn't really look like the kind of BioWare we've come to know - no alien flirting or tough narrative choices here. You are on a world where the "old gods" left behind their weapons.

Battlefield 5 When EA and DICE revealed the next Battlefield game to the world, the community reacted strongly: The game's return to World War II looked exciting, but some fans took issue with what they saw as historical inaccuracies. They also debuted a number of visual Javelin customization options, noting that vanity items, but no gameplay altering items, will be available for purchase as non-loot box micro-transactions.

Anthem will launch on 22nd February 2019, which is the same day as Days Gone, on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Battlefield 5 will absolutely be a big part of EA Play this year. More's the pity. Citadel was ace, though, so if there's a breath of that sort of camaraderie in Anthem we might get to enjoy some of that BioWare magic after all.

There are four javelin types: Ranger, Colossus, Interceptor, and Storm. The team will do this by continuously adding new stories missions and locations to the game after launch. They vowed to not have any pay-to-win mechanics in future games.
