Let’s just hope the Anthem voice-over work is top notch as always. Also, Bioware is yet to reveal the Anthem voice cast and we are sure they have hired some talented voive-over artists for Anthem.
Speaking of Anthem, this weekend Bioware will let select players play closed alpha. The Anthem Closed alpha starts on December 8 and continues till December 9. However, the signups for the closed alpha are now closed.
The closed alpha is basically a playtest for Anthem before it launches. The purpose of the Anthem closed alpha is to test matchmaking.
Not only that, those who are selected for playing the closed alpha can pre-load the game. However, don’t get your hopes up as t is an Alpha, the game build provided is going to be a work in progress.
Bioware is known for its single-player game with a tight focus on narrative and player choice. With Anthem that is about to change as it is a multiplayer focused game. This means Bioware is out of its comfort zone with Anthem but, for Bioware it is Invigorating.
Creative director Jonathan Warner noted that talking about Anthem gameplay instead of its world and narrative is very invigorating.
Given that Anthem is a live-service game, Bioware will be adding more content to it through expansions and updates. However, Bioware won’t ask for a penny for story DLC as Anthem’s all story DLC will be free.
Furthermore, Bioware was criticized for the facial animations in Mass Effect Andromeda. While Anthem is looking good but, fans are worried that might see the repeat of those terrible facial animations.
However, that is not the case as Bioware has promised that it won’t use Andromeda’s facial tech for Anthem. According to Bioware, they have developed a new facial animation tech for Anthem.
Anthem is an open-world multiplayer game in development at Bioware. The game rolls out on February 22, 2018, for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4.
