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

Definitely looks like one to keep an eye on.

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.

I'm really interested in this game myself. At the moment it won't take much to kill off destiny. Although bungie have their dlc to right the ship so to speak

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.

Yeah I'm brushing EA titles until they say no more micro-transactions. Either make all the games free to play with in game purchases or take my $100 at purchase and that's it.

I can't say the hype is there for me, either. Just really worried it's going to be something completely different to what I expect it to be but then again, I felt the same about Destiny before it released then loved it once I got my hands on it so we'll see.

No season pass for DLC too so that's a win.

I'm in no way going to let myself get hyped for this at all, frankly after the let down of destiny 2 and this game being made by EA, hopes are about as low as they can be. I'll be keeping an eye on it and definitely not ruling out buying it, but wont be boarding any hype trains any time soon.

I pre-ordered a while ago. My hype has died down a bit. Still looking forward to release but expectations have been lowered.

I'm still on the fence, looks like it could be good, but I have almost the exact same concerns with it that I had with Destiny, which is largely end game content. I wont be pre-ordering but a cheap day 1 price could convince me to jump in, Tobor is also keeping an eye on this.

I am on the no side of the fence for now. I have not seen anything compelling about the game, but one pro is that the devs can fully concentrate on the PvE experience. Another pro is there will be matchmaking - afaik for everything in the game.

There will be an open demo Feb 1st-3rd which I will probably try out.
Title: Re: Anthem
Post by: raz81 on December 19, 2018, 03:28:12 PM
I'll wait till after release for this one.

All they've shown us so far is 'kill trash mob, trash mob , trash mob , boss'

Although that can be fun in a group, and gathering loot is always addictive, right now it isn't that compelling to me.
