Bioware’s New Shared-World Game ‘Anthem’ is “Single-Player Friendly,” according to Lead Designer

Bioware revealed their new shared-world action RPG at the Microsoft E3 2017 presser today and it looked absolutely stunning.

The game is called Anthem and “players can delve into a vast world teeming with amazing technology and forgotten treasures. The world is also filled with savage beasts and ruthless marauders where Freelancers are called to defeat the forces plotting to conquer humanity,” according to the game’s initial press release.

One question that was immediately raised about the game following its reveal was whether or not the game could be played as a single player title. As with many shared-world titles, such as the original Destiny and Division, the games aren’t exactly designed to encourage single-player playthroughs. According to Bioware’s Lead Designer, Corey Gaspur, Anthem is single-player friendly.

Very few details on Anthem have been released thus far, but you can check out the official reveal trailer for the game at the bottom of this post.

Ian and I talked about our initial reactions towards Anthem in the next episode of our podcast which will be airing later this evening. Anthem is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Stay tuned to Gameumentary for continued E3 2017 coverage and further updates on Anthem.
