Wow that's amazing. Looks like Destiny originally promised to be.

Some initial DF analysis indicates that Anthem was indeed running on XBOX, but it was checkerboard rendering - not native 4k. Still looks amazing, but the ground texture load in was also pointed out and was quite noticeable.

Ambitious. I reckon we'll see it slip to March 2019 after a delay to miss Holiday 2018. EA will not want their Destiny Killer to turn into another Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Yes, but when someone zings the zing-master, does this not mean the master has been out-zinged? :troll: bravo Auldar

EA's wanting to take our lunch money

Let's just hope it's not via Loot boxes a-la EA's two recent fiasco's with SWBF2 and NFS...

Speaking of, Bioware devs weigh in on the loot box situation:

Quote
I hear you. We’re talking a fair bit about this at the moment. I can’t really talk about it too much, but it’s an ongoing discussion.

And if it helps at all, we’re gamers too. A bunch of folks on the team have similar positions on monetization… so that perspective is definitely represented.

I think it has more to do with the philosophy around it, the first thing that most people do is look at the value of the “sweat currency” as compared to the premium currency.

Personally I prefer games where the ratio is somewhat reasonable… ie: I can reasonably acquire currencies to purchase things through regular play.

Personally, I also don’t like it when some things are only available for premium purchase.

Whilst it's nice to see the devs state, publicly, that they aren't a fan of loot boxes, in the end, this will be an EA published game and I wouldn't be surprised if this creeps into it somehow.

EA will want further profits as do BioWare/DICE/Ghost Games and most likely Respawn in the next Titanfall.

EA and its children companies are all guilty here, they all want extra profits and every company out there in this industry are continuing to push slowly to see where the limits are, fortunately, EA, DICE and Ghost Games found that limit this year and the pushback will hopefully make it clear to other companies that rewards that benefit the whale over the normal gamer is not on and will give them time to tune for 2018 releases.

COSMETICS ONLY

Really not excited about any EA titles anymore.
