Game trailer is out:

Bioware's latest IP.
Not going to lie, this has some stunning graphics and gameplay doesn't look bad either. I'm probably going to get the PC version rather than console.

Visually stunning, to be sure, but I'm not really excited. it feels a lot like Destiny with the combat and UI of Mass Effect but in something akin to an MMO. On paper that sounds pretty good but I have to wonder, as a mainly solo player, if I'm going to miss most of the cool stuff like I did in Destiny because I'm not into forced grouping. Until they can prove that this experience will be worthwhile for solo oriented play, I just can't get too excited.

It might be interesting (haven't seen anything that would allow me to make a judgement) but I definitely wouldn't buy it at release cause it's probably going to be a buggy sh*t show.

It looks gorgeous and it's from Bioware. I'm excited for it! Especially if it combines the game-play of Destiny with the story telling of Bioware. I am intrigued how to see what the game's general game-play will involve. Although, since I've not played their most recent releases, perhaps I have more fond feelings for Bioware than some seem to have. Hopefully they learned from Mass Effect: Andromeda's launch and Anthem will be up to the standard expected from the studio.

To be fair, the main development of ME: Andromeda was in BW-Montreal. Anthem -AFAIK- is being made in the main studio located in Edmonton (where all the great games came from + Dragon Age II). I'll be keeping an eye on it since it's interesting.

Yeah when I saw the reveal trailer for Anthem I got excited to. Though I am not entirely sure on the multiplayer focused story line. I love group play but sometimes your friends just aren't online and hooking with randoms is what killed Destiny for me. I just hope there is enough to do by yourself during those play sessions when you're just soloing it.

It looks pretty neat, but it's far too early for me to get hyped since this game is a few years away from public consumption.

A few years, you really weren't paying attention were you. The game is slatted for a Fall 2018 release. In case you can't count that's next year.

Is there seriously any need to be a condescending dick about it? That's still long enough away for me to temper my hype to some degree and for all we know, it could suffer a delay. So... sorry for not being spot on with an estimated release window I guess?

A fair point but come on mate, the entire E3 presentation for Anthem said it was slatted for a fall 2018 release . It's not like it was some super secret thing.

I think I most likely either mixed up the release window with another game or I simply missed it amongst the sea of game announcements the past several days. My memory may have been jumbled along the way, seeing as I've consumed an exhaustive amount of E3 media already. But yeah, Anthem looks good thus far and I'm certainly glad it's not slated for a 2019 release just yet. It's still possible it could suffer a delay since that's quite a common circumstance nowadays.

I don't see much in the way of delays. The Frostbite engine is pretty stable and high preforming and EA's usually pretty good about it's release dates.
